Osteopathy treatment: Holistic manual therapy that focuses on total body health

What Is Osteopathy?

Osteopathic medicine is an alternative practice based on the idea that many illnesses are caused by the loss of structural integrity in the body. Mechanisms of auto regulation in the organism are ensured by the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. A loss or decrease of proper functioning of these systems can bring about a disease state. Osteopathy is a natural, manual and holistic therapy. Its objective is to reequilibrate and re-establish normal functioning of the muscle skeletal, organs and sacro-craneal alterations. Through skillful manipulation, it helps revitalize blood flow and regain mobility to the affected areas. Osteopathy does not treat the symptom but rather goes deeper and tries to address the cause.

The osteopath chooses the best adapted and most comfortable techniques for his patient according to his age, his morphology and the area of the body to be corrected. Osteopathy is therefore aimed at all (infants, children, adolescents, pregnant women, adults and seniors) as a preventive, curative and rehabilitative treatment for both acute and chronic pain.

Osteopathy is therefore a manual therapy based on a thorough knowledge of the human body and a meticulous touch, always adjusted to the patient and the pathology encountered. It is not so much concerned with the symptom as with what causes it and aims at both the restoration and preservation of health in a natural and holistic way.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DOES OSTEOPATHY WORK?

Osteopathic medicine believes that disease or illness can stem from structural problems in the spine, where long nerves connect the spine to vital bodily organs. When an individual encounters spinal problems, the long nerve’s communication with the body’s organs is disrupted. Osteopathic manipulation techniques are then used to treat these spinal problems and to allow the spinal nerves to regain proper communication with the body. This restructuring of the spine allows individuals to use their own natural healing powers to restore their optimal health. Osteopaths use a non-invasive and hands-on techniques to maximize the circulation of nerve supply, hormone secretion and circulation along the spine. These techniques include: stretching and releasing connective tissues, strengthening unstable joints, improving nerve supply, enhancing circulation and lymphatic drainage.

During an osteopathic consultation, the therapist listens to the complaints of the client, assesses the systems and structures of the body that may be related to the area of complaint and implements a manual treatment plan based on their health and physical assessment. Osteopathic treatments are customized according to age, physical characteristics and specific reactions to treatments.
