Visceral Osteopathy

An osteopath tries to get to the root of the problem…

Visceral osteopathy is a type of osteopathic practice that is focused on the manual therapy of the organs in the body. It is a specialized kind of osteopathy that addresses problems that may arise from your body’s internal organs.

The same way restriction in joints can cause dysfunction, a restriction in the normal glide and slide movements of your body’s organs can also cause symptomology and inhibit their overall function. Edge Healthcare provides visceral osteopathy, which can address a number of other issues.

What causes the restriction of an organs mobility?

  • past infection or illness
  • traumatic injuries
  • Scar tissue as a result of surgeries
  • Poor posture

These things usually create ‘sticky’ adhesion within the connective tissue, which causes restrictions in the overall movement of the organ. The body, being very inept at managing restrictions then create compensations and fixations around the problematic area.

Often a restriction in the organs will manifest as a musculoskeletal condition- that being pain or lack of mobility in the areas around it. Visceral osteopathy assesses, diagnosis and treats the organs to restore motion, and function, reducing issues you main feel more widespread in your body or issues you are having as a direct result of improper functioning of that organ.


Some conditions visceral osteopathy can help with;

  • Constipation and Bloating
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • GERD, Acid Reflux
  • Chronic Spinal Dysfunction
  • Sciatica
  • Joint Pain
  • Post Operative Scar Tissue
  • Painful periods
  • Pain on urination
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Bladder urgency/frequency
  • Bladder incontinence
