Therapy Clinic in Vinings

One on One Osteopathic Manual Therapy 

 Proper treatment of complex unresolved pain starts with an in-depth history.  When seen entirely one on one, the client can be assessed and reassessed through the treatment process so that problems are found and solved.  That is the reason for this clinic.  It fits the complex patient in ways the exercised based PT clinics do not.

Orthopedic problems as well as more complex issues such as: head aches, spine, Sacroiliac/Pelvis, TMJ, fibromyalgia, IBS, pelvic floor and abdominal pain cases are all treated here in a quiet closed environment free of interruption.  What these cases have in common is generally an adaptation of the nervous system that perpetuates pain. All successful treatments, whether they focus on joints, soft tissue, reflexes, etc, address the nervous system to move it away from its protective guarding responses.  When the nervous system is taught that it no longer needs to protect the body from a perceived injury, it stops wasting energy and returns to normal function.

Rather than focusing on exercise, Kent focuses on “teaching” the nervous system that it doesn’t need to protect the body but needs to return to normal function.  This is done through Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) and other reflex techniques which may include fascial treatment, visceral mobilization and manual trigger point therapy or dry needling trigger point therapy.

Testimonials

Kent’s analytic and diagnostic skills are amazing.  He never fails to identify what is causing pain in my back, knee, shoulder, or elsewhere.  His office procedures are usually able to eliminate the pain and his recommended stretching exercises keep the pain from reoccurring.

I’ve hurt on a daily basis since I was 7 years old.  From non-stop headaches to migraines, pinched nerves, bulging discs, and throbbing muscles with galloping charlie horses – you name it, I’ve hurt.  For nearly four decades, I’ve spent a fortune in money, time and hope chasing relief from every type of provider:  Western medicine, other PTs, chiropractic, kinesiology, acupuncture, massage, even hypnosis.  Not one has had lasting benefits.  Until I found Kent.

On the brink of spinal surgery for low-back pain, a friend recommended I try Kent.  I’ll never be able to repay her.

In just a few months, Kent has lessened every one of my pain symptoms, eliminating some entirely.  Through his passion to know and understand how the body’s muscular, skeletal and nervous systems function, he looks at my body as one whole, connected system, with what’s happening in one area affecting the entire body.  He listens to me, asks questions, and then from years of training and what I attribute to innate wisdom, he knows where to go and what to do.  I leave feeling better every time.  And the “better” doesn’t go away.  I feel better.  I am better.

Kent Osborn is improving my life.  If you hurt, I urge you to let him improve yours, too.

“Before seeing Kent, I had been having terrible back problems for a year.  I literally could not move without excruciating pain.  My back was spasming so much I had to have multiple massages which only relieved the problem temporarily.  A good friend recommended Kent.  I came in and after the first several minutes as he asked lots of questions, listened carefully and explained some things to me, such as how the stretching (from a previous PT) may have been making things worse, I knew my prayers had been answered.  Kent is so knowledgeable and passionate about helping people to deal with all the aspects of chronic pain,  physical as well as mental and emotional.   He explained to me how muscles and nerves can get in an incorrect pattern and need to be reset.  With just a few visits I am much improved.  I am able to exercise again and my friends, clients and co-workers have commented on how much better I appear.  I would never have imagined that I could be relieved of my pain with just a few visits and gentle techniques. I recommend Kent to anyone I hear of having pain.  Through him, my body is being healed and my faith in health CARE has been restored.  I thank God daily for using Kent to bless me. ”

“I suffered from back pain for months. Having tried traditional ‘heat pack’ physical therapy several times in the past, without relief, I was afraid I would just have to live with pain for the rest of my life. Within minutes, Kent’s surprisingly gentle assessment identified the real culprit. Small muscles in my back were compensating for another large muscle that was “on strike” and not functioning. After just one treatment from Kent Osborn, I was able to go dancing, pain-free, for the first time in a year. The assessment and treatment were fast, comfortable and easy. And Kent gave me exercises that are helping my body heal itself. If you’re looking for a physical therapist, I can’t recommend Kent Osborn highly enough. He gave me my life back.”
