Osteopathy, a manual practice
Osteopathy is a manual practice that treats the loss of mobility and tension in all structures of the human body (joints, viscera, tissues, muscles ...). It allows to correct some of these dysfunctions thanks to manipulation techniques, the others correcting themselves with the homeostasis of the body. The osteopath works on the support points so that the body self-regulates itself.
Osteopathy works on the whole body and contrary to what we think, this discipline does not only treat the bone! The osteopath will work on all the palpable structures of the body: bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons, viscera, etc.
All areas of the body are linked and an imbalance in one structure can have repercussions on the others. This is why the osteopath always looks for the origin of the pain in order to treat it at the source, the area of pain being rarely the origin but the translation of the problem.
Osteopathy does not treat organic pathologies (cancer, cirrhosis, flu, etc)! It is necessary to consult a doctor beforehand.
However, osteopathy has its role to play and can relieve the patient.
