What is osteopathy?
In osteopathy, the therapist uses his hands to diagnose and treat patients. Osteopaths try to recognize and treat functional disorders in the body.
In contrast to other manual techniques, osteopathy is based on a philosophical concept that respects the individual as a whole. According to osteopathy, the musculoskeletal system, skull, spinal cord and organs are interrelated as a system and any blockages in this system can be released and the self-healing powers activated.
To understand the whole, it is important for the osteopath to have precise knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. Because only in this way can he recognize connections and details that have led to illness or pain symptoms. During the treatment itself, the therapist tries to restore the body’s integrity and order and to activate its self-healing powers. Osteopathy is an independent, holistic form of medicine in which diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands. Osteopathy gets to the bottom of the causes of complaints and treats people in their entirety.
Where is osteopathy used?
In the case of disorders and pain in the musculoskeletal system , osteopathy shows good treatment results , as it takes the patient’s subjective well-being seriously and does not only rely on findings or imaging procedures ( X-ray, CT, etc.).
In addition, it is not limited to the diagnosis of bony structures, soft tissues or joints, but tries to look at connections and includes, for example, organs. Another area of application are functional disorders such as ringing in the ears (tinnitus) , digestive disorders or headaches.
HOW OSTEOPATHY WORKS
Osteopathy builds on the body’s own self-healing and self-regulatory powers. Illnesses and disorders often arise when the body loses the ability to regulate itself. This is where osteopathy comes in and mobilizes the body’s self-healing powers.
Every part of the body, every organ needs sufficient freedom of movement for optimal functioning. The aim of osteopathic treatments is to release blockages and tissue tension and thus restore mobility. Osteopaths always research the causes of complaints and do not limit themselves to treating individual symptoms. So no diseases in the actual sense are treated, but their triggers, such as movement disorders.
