Saanichton Chiropractic Group: Low Back Pain, Osteopathy & Massage Therapy

Updated: May 25, 2023

At Saanichton Chiropractic Group in Saanichton BC as part of our services such as chiropractic care, and registered massage therapy, we also offer osteopathy. Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including low back pain. Osteopathic treatment is a holistic approach that focuses on the structural integrity of the body and how it relates to the health and functioning of the rest of the body.

Osteopathic treatment for low back pain begins with a thorough assessment of the patient’s back, including a physical exam, medical history, and any relevant imaging studies. After the assessment, a customized treatment plan is created to address the root cause of the patient’s pain. This plan may include manipulation and other manual techniques, such as stretching, massage, and joint mobilization.

Osteopathic treatments are often used to reduce pain and improve mobility in patients with low back pain. Studies have found that osteopathic manipulation may be as effective as some medications in treating low back pain. Osteopathic treatments may also help to improve posture, reduce muscle tension, and improve overall range of motion.

Osteopathic treatments are typically safe and effective, but it’s always important to consult with a qualified health care professional before embarking on any type of treatment plan. Our therapists at Saanichton Chiropractic are properly trained and qualified to help assess and treat your conditions.

If you’re dealing with low back pain, osteopathy may be an effective option for alleviating your symptoms and improving your quality of life. Talk to us at Saanichton Chiropractic Group 250-223-0200 to see if osteopathy is right for you.

Alexandre Rouhani at Saanichton Chiropractic Group has been a practitioner of manual therapy for 20 years, specializing in massage therapy and osteopathy. He has also held a teaching position for the past 18 years, during which he has imparted his knowledge and expertise of a variety of massage techniques.

Alex furthered his studies of osteopathy at the Professional School of Osteopathy Quebec (E.P.O.Q.), and has also taken the opportunity to travel to Asia, where he has learned and incorporated a wide range of hands-on modalities (Nuad Boran, Tuina, Amma etc.) into his treatments. His client-specific approach includes Thai massage, Lomi Lomi, Deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, Amma, Tuina, Reflexology, and Lymph drainage.

In addition to this, he also assesses in motion, utilizing rocking movements and a comprehensive body routine massage with acupressure points and specific osteopathic techniques, guaranteeing that all aspects of the treatment are addressed.
