What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a gentle, manual treatment method that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.
An osteopath focuses on the patient’s joints, muscles, and spine. Osteopathy is a great way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems. An osteopath treats the body as a whole – not only the acutely affected area. Osteopathy is a suitable treatment method to all ages because of its gentle nature.
Benefits of Osteopathy:
- Gentle treatment
Osteopathy is a gentle treatment method that is customized to fit every individual patient according to their needs. Due to its gentle nature, it is excellent for pregnant mothers and even babies.
- Stress management
An osteopath is educated in detecting stress-based problems in the body. Shallow breathing, fatigue and digestion problems are some of the most common stress-related issues an osteopath is able to help you with.
- Detect root causes
Osteopathy aims to treat the body as a whole and detect connections between different areas of the body. An osteopath can help you find the root causes for persisting issues in the body and find long-term preventative solutions for them.
