Dr. Stephanie Nani, DO

Whether you struggle with chronic pain or illness, recently suffered an injury, or simply want to enjoy a higher level of overall health, osteopath medicine can help.  Osteopathy is not just a set of techniques.  Rather, it is a philosophy, an approach to health and the human body that when applied in medical practice can have a profound impact on a patient’s recovery. 

The human body is always working to maintain a state of balance.  The goal of osteopathic medicine is simply to assist in that process.  It is a very hands-on approach that aims to bring a body that has been altered through stress, injury or disease into a more balanced state, thereby allowing the body’s self corrective forces to take over.  In this way healing may occur naturally. 

Dr. Nani maintains a very traditional osteopathic practice and uses a variety of treatment modalities, all within the osteopathic concept to bring about healing.  Dr. Nani also regularly works with other providers as more complex patients often require a team effort.  With this type of approach to healthcare it is not uncommon for even the most resistant and chronic conditions to improve.

All the remedies to health exist in the human body. – A.T. Still
