Dane Shields

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

About Dane

Dane’s active lifestyle and resulting injuries introduced him to osteopathy as a manual therapy treatment. As an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, Dane has developed a great appreciation for working with the complexity of the human body to find individual solutions to alleviate discomfort and dysfunction of the body.
Osteopathy is a gentle, hands-on treatment to improve and restore function of body systems to achieve optimal patient health and allow the body’s natural capacity to self heal. Using fundamental principals to guide treatment therapy, osteopathy allows a unique approach specific to the patient. Understanding interactions between all body systems promotes a holistic approach which recognizes different solution paths often varying between individuals.
During the first appointment, an initial assessment along with your history intake will be followed by a treatment. Wearing some non-restrictive clothing we will go through various ranges of motion addressing different areas of restriction and ease throughout your body. We then apply science based resistance and other hands on, interactive modalities to elicit the body getting back into its proper alignment to facilitate its own natural healing and regulation.
Dane has a gentle approach rooted in an understanding of osteopathic principles aiming to interact with your nervous system and soft tissue. Working towards  the goal of healing, Dane is excited to find health solutions alongside his patients so they may enjoy life to the fullest.
