Osteopathic Treatment for Lyme Disease Effects

Osteopathy not only treats physical injuries but can benefit chronic illnesses. Since 1998 Connecticut has steadily reported an increase of annual Lymes disease cases. Symptoms of this disease can take days or even months to show making it difficult to combat. At Osteopathic Wellness Center serving Ridgefield, Danbury, and New Canaan, an Osteopathic doctor can give clear and specific test results, and then proceed with proper treatment options. Osteopathic doctors are trained across vast disciplines and may help patients who aren’t responding to other highly effective therapies.*

As a functional medicine, Osteopathic doctors look for the most basic underlying cause triggering the symptoms and the disease process. The location for the primary dysfunction in the body or the key lesion will most likely show symptoms in the most vulnerable systems. An old shoulder injury can begin to flare up more often if that person has Lymes which can complicate a sure diagnosis. At the Osteopathic Wellness Center, greater Connecticut patients can be given tests for possible metabolic imbalances. Ultimately, almost every Lyme patient will benefit from being evaluated by a highly skilled, “hands on” osteopathic physician. They are able to evaluate, treat, and clear any dysfunctions in the body’s systems. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment can also benefit as an important addition to any chronic Lyme treatment plan by reducing inflammation, supporting lymphatic drainage, and increasing detoxification.*
