Osteopathy uses manual therapy as a form of non-invasive medicine without drugs and is responsible for improving the health of the whole body and not just an affected or injured area focusing on the musculoskeletal structure.

It is about the osteopath using his hands to strengthen your joints, muscles and spine, improving the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic system of your body.


Uses of osteopathy

Osteopathy can give great relief to a multitude of problems, the most common treatments for which this physiotherapy technique is used are:

  • Arthritis

What does osteopathic treatment consist of?

An osteopath focuses on the whole body using manual techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. Areas to be treated range from the muscles (including ligaments and tendons) to the spine, respiratory and nervous systems, using a variety of methods including:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Soft tissue massage techniques
  • Articulation, gentle and rhythmic joint movements
  • Stretching of muscles and joint capsules
  • Muscle energy techniques, encouraging muscles to work against resistance
  • Visceral manipulation, gentle movement of the abdominal and pelvic areas

As a gentle manual technique, osteopathy can be used for adults, children and the elderly. Even for people who have severe medical problems.
