Osteopathy is a manual therapy that aims to heal the functional disorders of human body structures and restore the balance between the body and mind. The osteopath treats the patient’s body globally regardless of the symptoms.
It is a question of finding the cause of the symptoms by an osteopathic diagnosis specific to each patient. Therefore, this requires excellent knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
Discomfort or pain occurs when the body no longer has the ability to adapt and heal itself. By treating the cause of the problem, it prevents a minor disorder from becoming, overtime, a major or even irreversible disorder. When treating the patient, the practitioner acts in such a way that the body regulates itself.
Osteopathy can also be used in prevention :
There may be movement limitations that are painless but with time the first symptoms could occur if left untreated.
Osteopathy is for everyone, from newborns to elderly people, as well as pregnant women or young mothers.
