Dr. Lopez and Dr.
Curtis started Inspire Osteopathy Denver in 2022 after many years at Osteopathic Integrative Medicine. Both Dr. Lopez and Dr. Curtis are a husband and wife team committed to providing the highest-quality treatments and care for their patients.
Growing up with a lot of pains and trying many different things, it was the osteopathic approach that produced results and changed my life for the better. Read Dr. Lopez's bio here
My life experiences have uniquely shaped my work and the philosophy of osteopathy has greatly influenced my life. It's given me an ability to help others more than I could before.
When Osteopathic Integrative Medicine in Lakewood, Colorado closed its doors, the husband and wife team of Daniel Lopez, D.O. and Sarah Curtis, D.O. decided the time was right to open a new practice: A new osteopathic practice that had their personality. A place dedicated to great care and healing.
The first step was to choose a name. Osteopathic philosophy is something we breathe and live. It's not just nice words to us, but something we apply every day of our lives. We regularly have insights and inspirations from the patients we treat following osteopathic principles. We don't just practice modalities and techniques, so we aren't limited by them. Our practice is constantly evolving as we push the boundaries of hands-on osteopathic treatment so we can bring our patients better results.
Osteopathy forces us to be experts of the whole human body in a way that is unmatched by any other profession. Not only is our knowledge of anatomy more profound, we understand that when one structure becomes dysfunctional, but it also affects the rest of the body. We customize our treatments based on our evaluation at each visit. We don't do protocols because of the limitations they impose. Working in this way, we were able to grow our skills and expertise, and get results where many others fail.
As a blend of life experiences and pushing the boundaries of osteopathic treatment, we developed a niche and expertise in airway-focused treatments. This involved working with a team of experts to provide tongue-tie releases, palate expansion, and more while we spent hours studying anatomy and exploring the effects of manual treatments of structure no one else knows how to evaluate and treat. This is just a small, but important, part of what we are capable of treating with osteopathic manipulative treatment.
Finally, we have had patients tell us that the healing they have experienced has inspired them. They felt they understood their bodies profoundly in a way they hadn't before with other bodywork. They were inspired by the healing they hadn't ever had before, even if they had given up hope from their prior experiences. They felt inspired they could take charge of their own health.
Because of the inspiration that osteopathy has provided to us and our patients, it influenced our decision on a name. Also, the double meaning inspiration has with breathing and life, we felt "inspire" fit the name of our practice perfectly. Our goal was to serve the greater Denver area of Colorado. So the name "Inspire Osteopathy Denver" was a perfect name for our practice.
We did not feel Osteopathic Integrative Medicine was in an ideal location to serve the greater Denver area. It worked well for some, but not us and many other patients. We found a wonderful office space to start Inspire Osteopathy Denver in the area we were looking for: Colorado Blvd and I-25. Not only is Colorado Blvd a great central location that is easily accessible from I-25, but Inspire Osteopathy Denver is located very close to the exit.
Not only is the Inspire Osteopathy Denver close to the exit, but it is nestled on a quiet street parallel to Colorado Blvd that does not feel so busy. We felt it to be the perfect place to open our practice.
So what did we want to achieve with Inspire Osteopathy Denver? We wanted to create a place of healing for the greater Denver area looking for an osteopath nearby. The foundation of Inspire Osteopathy Denver has been on providing the best osteopathic manipulative treatment possible. But we didn't just want to be limited to the hands-on healing. We also wanted to provide technical advances that accelerate healing beyond what we can do with our hands in a way that is in alignment with osteopathic philosophies.
As a result, we are bringing in exosome therapy. It is a part of regenerative healing that can trigger the body to heal itself powerfully. We work with gut dysbiosis and damage because it is a significant source of systemic inflammation. This can worsen many problems, including arthritis, headaches, and more.
It was also important to us to provide resources and education through products, online courses, webinars, and more.
