What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a global therapeutic approach using manipulative techniques. It aims to evaluate the different structures of the body to give them back mobility and an ease to make sure that it can then optimally heal itself. This discipline will help you regain flexibility in your joints, will lower or even eliminate many kinds of pain and will make you feel better.
Stress is a reason of consultation we see more and more frequently, since it’s omnipresent throughout the population. People who experience stress can develop other pains that do not seem related at first sight but can engender respiratory disorders, musculoskeletal pain, digestive disorders and several other unexpected signs. Osteopathy can relieve those effects and even help you manage it.
Osteopathy as prevention
In addition to relieving already existing problems, osteopathy can also be useful as a therapeutic approach to prevention. The body has the ability to absorb shocks and impacts on daily bases but comes a time where you have reached the maximum barrier that can’t be exceeded without the body reacting. This is what happens when a movement as simple as getting up after picking up something on the ground can create back pain. That is, the accumulation of small dysfunctions in the body that eventually creates a real dysfunction that persists. By going to see the osteopath a few times a year in prevention, they can rebalance those dysfunctions before the body goes in pain.
Osteopathy helps, among other things, to relieve the following problems;
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Digestion disorders, heartburn, constipation, bloating, abdominal pain, etc.
- Repercussion and stress management
- Sciatica and cruralgia
- Jaw pain
- Sleeping trouble
Who can go see the osteopath?
Osteopathy is for everyone, young children, babies, pregnant women, elderly’s and athletes, since it advocates a gentle approach.
Don’t wait, it’s time to take care of you!
