What is Osteopathy

Was ist Osteopathie?

 The Osteopathy is based on the Anatomy and physiology of the human being.

In the Osteopathy the therapist does not concentrate on the symptom but on the cause of the problems and looks at the body as a whole. The different systems of the body are conected with each other and influence one another.

 

"To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease."

Philosophy of Osteopathy

(Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, 1902)

 

The aim is to restore the balance in the body doing this by using manual techniques. Osteopathy is applied in the musculoskeletal system, in the organs, the nerve system, craneal area, lymphatic system, and more.

 

Conditions treated with osteopathy:

  • igestive problems
  • pelvic complaints (Menstrual cramps, menopause, incontinence)
  • pain in the musculoskeletal system
  • pregnancy complaints
  • migraine, headaches
  • Children's osteopathy for baby colic, digestive problems, torticollis, asymetric craneal bones, sleeping problems, muscoeskeletical difficulties, etc.

The Osteopathy for children is a complement to the traditional medicine. It is not only effective when treating acute problems but also as a prevention. It is recommendable to see an Osteopath in the first weeks of life for a check up looking at restrictions in movement, contractions or asymetries to restore the balance in the body and allow an optimal development.
