The medical concept of osteopathy

"Osteo" stands for bone and "pathy" for disease. This translation suggests that osteopathy represents the treatment of bone diseases. In its wider context however, osteopathy is a systemic manual medicine which treats the cause of the disease.

The osteopathic approach

The comprehensive medical history of the patient provides the osteopath with important clues for an adequate, complete body treatment.

An osteopathic evaluation is done before each treatment to reveal the important indicators for treatment. These include functional assessment, mobility of the spine, ribs, joints and internal organs and the elasticity of the tissue.

Osteopathy is a manual (i.e. with the hands) therapeutic approach which treats not only the skeletal system, but the body as a single unit.

Osteopathy is based on the principle that all body systems (bone, blood, nervous, lymphatic and hormone systems etc.) are interconnected and depend on mutual cooperation.

The organs for example influence the skeletal system and vice versa. A lack of or stressed movement of various body systems can cause poor circulation resulting in a lack of transport of the body's waste products. This in turn disturbs self regulation and self-healing eventually causing disease.

Osteopathy treats the cause of the disease by utilizing gentle techniques. The osteopath works with your body to create the perfect conditions to encourage the natural healing process.

Osteopathy is a scientifically proven medical field which requires detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry.

Tinnitus, digestive problems, incontinence, premenstrual symptoms can be successfully treated with osteopathy. Infants and children with problems stemming from trauma at birth or later are among the typical patients for osteopathy.
