What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual complementary medicine. This means that an examination and treatment is carried out by the osteopath, which is complementary to regular medicine.
The treatment focuses on the self-healing capacity of the body. This means that treatment is certainly not always done where the pain is expressed. There may be an underlying problem at a different location in the body.
The locations that are treated may differ, research is done on 3 systems:
– The Parietal system: the musculoskeletal system: joints, muscles, connective tissue.
– The visceral system: the organ system with fluids: stomach, intestines, lungs, lymph and blood vessel system.
– The Cranio-Sacral system: head-tailbone connection, with associated fluids and tension membranes.
During the first appointment, a complete examination takes place, the 3 systems above are examined for mobility and tension. A working diagnosis is made to restore the body’s optimal mobility. Depending on the examination, the frequency of the treatments is discussed.
There is a wide range of complaints for visiting an osteopath. As explained, the body is treated as a totality, which can provide improvement in a wide range of complaints.
You can think of: headaches, back complaints, tension complaints, irritable bowel syndrome, facial pains, stomach complaints, etc.
