Osteopathy

WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy is a manual treatment whereby the osteopath locates the loss of movement in joints and tissue. The osteopath sees the body as a whole and as such works not just on the area of concern but looks for the cause of the problem. In so doing, the osteopath works both acutely on your problem with a view to preventing it in future.

AN OSTEOPATH

First of all, an osteopath is a care provider. This means that they can be consulted without being referred to a doctor or specialist. In addition, they work closely with other care providers and refer the patient to the doctor or specialist if necessary.

HOW CAN AN OSTEOPATH HELP YOU

During the first consultation the osteopath will carry out an extensive anamnesis, asking for your medical history and your symptoms. They will then thoroughly examine the body. The osteopath approaches the body as a whole and provides treatment via mobilisation, manipulation and other techniques. The period between two forms of treatment is determined on an individual basis.
