Osteopathy is a science that is based on the anatomy and physiology of the human body. It focuses on the patient as a whole and not only on the symptoms. In this holistic context, it uses manual techniques to evaluate and treat reduced mobility at the visceral, neuro-musculoskeletal or cranial levels, seeking to rebalance the body. Thus, by normalizing the position, vascularization, innervation and movement of the affected structures, it will subsequently relieve pain.
What does the treatment of osteopathy entail?
The patient must bring complementary diagnostic exams with him when he comes for Osteopathy treatment (X-Ray, CT scan, Ultrasound, MRI, etc.)
Main indications for Osteopathic treatment:
Osteopathic treatment distinguishes itself from the rest, as it evaluates the patient as a whole. In order to identify the cause of the problem, various systems are evaluated not just the symptoms. In this way, relief is obtained and the function of all the structures recovered.
Osteopathy helps the body to regenerate and balance without the use of drugs, only with manual manipulation techniques.
This therapy is used in prevention and as a complement when used in conjunction with other medical specialties.
