What is osteopathy?
Physical discomfort can significantly affect life and significantly reduce the quality of life. If the musculoskeletal system suffers from tension or if there are even injuries to the muscles, bones or ligaments, this can not only have a negative effect on everyday life, but also on the psyche. Whether it is lumbago, herniated discs, migraines, allergies or other diseases – patients often do not get anywhere with conventional conventional medicine alone. To combat such physical ailments, one thing above all helps: a thorough analysis to determine the cause. Ostheopathy obtains an overview of the whole body to determine the origin of physiological impairments. On this basis, therapeutic measures can be initiated that start where the symptoms originate.
What does osteopathy do?
The doctrine of osteopathy includes the area of the cranium, central nervous system, as well as musculoskeletal system. If parts of these areas are restricted, it is important to investigate the cause and bring the body back into balance. To do this, the osteopath performs a holistic analysis, focusing on the anatomy of the body. It is essential to ask about current complaints and the patient’s medical history.
Subsequent palpation of affected parts and areas of the body can identify possible blockages of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, which can be responsible for many causes. Where tensions are strongest or weakest, functional disorders can be detected – not infrequently – where manual therapy can work wonders.
How does osteopathic treatment work?
The goal of osteopathy is to restore the body’s balance in order to treat symptoms from the ground up. This method trusts in the self-healing powers of the body, which can be activated with manual grip techniques.
In doing so, the osteopath addresses the individual stresses and demands of the patient and focuses on restoring harmony to the entire body. A mixture of mobilization and relaxation strengthens the body while making it permeable, so that both chronic and temporary pain and blockages can be reduced after just a few treatments.
Once the body is in balance, natural health sets in, which becomes noticeable physically and psychologically.
