Osteopathic treatment consists of treating dysfunctions, hypermobility or hypomobility that can be found in the spine, joints, nervous system, muscular system, viscera, skull …
Osteopathy is based on the fact that all systems of the body work together, are related, and therefore disorders in one system can affect the functioning of others. It is therefore a holistic practice type. The treatment, which is called osteopathic manipulation, consists of a system of practical techniques aimed at relieving pain, restoring functions and promoting health and well-being.
Osteopathy, therefore, seeks to restore lost body balance, reactivating its mechanisms of self-healing with various therapeutic techniques: joint manipulation, muscle energy, mobilization, streching, HVLT, functional techniques, among many others.
The osteopathic treatments that we offer in our Specialized Osteopathy Unit depend on a complete body evaluation, the type of injury and the patient. No treatment is the same as another and you should always follow a unique personal approach.
