Areas of intervention
Osteopathy is recommended for all types of pain, chronic or acute, of traumatic origin or not.
Usually there are three different lines of work in osteopathic treatment:
- Treatment and strengthening the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles and ligaments)
- Relaxation of the organs and viscera which are firmly attached to the bones and muscles, that need to continue to perform their function despite environmental constraints.
- Craniosacral mobilisation, strengthening and balancing focusing more on the nervous system.
The nature of the complaint may involve muscles, bones, joints, but also organs, skull and general state.
This therapy is particularly adapted to post-operative care as it can work on scar tissue formation and tissual adhesions that are at the basis of many health issues.
Most common symptoms treated :
- Neck, back and joint pains
- Carpal tunnel syndrom
- Pinched nerves (sciatica, cruralgia...)
- Sequelae of sprains and fractures
- Scar tissues
- Headaches, migraines
- Concentration and sleep problems
- Temporomandibular joint disorder
- Stomach pain, heartburn and digestive issues
- Asthma and respiratory conditions
- Stress or anxiety
- Mood swings and depression.
