Osteopathy is considered a natural holistic medicine which aims to restore the functions of the body by treating restrictions and constrictions within the tissues that cause imbalances and pain within the body. Osteopathy is a natural, hands-on and holistic approach to healthcare practiced in more than 50 countries world-wide. The World Health Organization recognizes osteopathy as a distinct manual therapy that differs from other forms of treatment. It is based on extensive knowledge and understanding of anatomy, physiology, patho-physiology and biomechanics. An Osteopathic Manual Practitioner (OMP) restores, maintains, improves and integrates the inter-related structures, systems and processes in order to improve the natural healing abilities of the body.
Osteopathic Manual Therapy offers a whole-body approach to the assessment and treatment of dysfunctions that exist within the body. This global osteopathic approach takes into account your full health history and evaluates the inter-relationships of past and current conditions, injuries, activities, postures, and much more to determine the best possible treatment interventions from infancy through adulthood.
Very often we see patients after they have tried many other approaches, and it is only after the whole picture of their health has finally been clearly investigated and taken into account that they are able to find relief.
