OSTEOPATHY

A non-invasive manual therapy that focuses on achieving total body health 

A.T Still, inventor of osteopathy

Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), American, is the inventor of osteopathy.

In 1864, a meningitis epidemic causes him a questioning of his training as a doctor.

He then seeks a new approach to health and invents "Osteopathy" June 22, 1874.

Today, osteopaths continue to use their hands to treat their patients in this same tradition. To qualify as an osteopath, you need to complete a five-year program of full study in osteopathy.

What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a gentle form of manual therapy, with a holistic approach to health. It is based on the idea that all of the body’s systems are interrelated and considers the whole body, rather than just the area of pain. 

 

Oftentimes, your symptoms represent the “smoke” to “fires” — that may be elsewhere in your body. An osteopath’s job is to find those fires, put them out and allow your body to achieve a state of balance

 

Using a gentle touch, osteopaths use a personalized mix of approaches (ie. musculoskeletal, fascia release, craniosacral therapy, visceral techniques) to find restrictions in your connective tissue and to re-establish mobility and health.

Osteopathy for all ages

Osteopathy is for everyone: it supports the child as early as the first days of life, the pregnant woman, the athlete in the optimization of its performance, the adult in his daily life, or the seniors.

There is no age, sex, weight or height criteria to be treated in osteopathy.

Every techniques used is adapted specifically, according to the patient and his age, in respect of possible medical contraindications. We never use techniques to "force it through" in osteopathy.

What does an osteopath treat ?

There are 3 main reasons to consult an osteopath: 

- Pain: 

Pain, discomfort or stiffness affecting the musculoskeletal system of the body (joints and muscles). Some of the most common complaints are: back pain, neck pain, joint pain (hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow ...), jaw pain, sprains, tendinitis, arthritis, sciatica, cruralgia, cervico-brachial neuralgia...

- Functional issues:

The most common are: digestive pain, constipation, bloating, diarrhea, reflux, headaches, vertigo, tinnitus, stress, anxiety, sleep disorder, fatigue ...  

- Prevention:

Pain occurs caused when the body's self-healing abilities are exhausted.

To avoid this, don't wait for heavy symptoms to go see your osteopath. 

An annual visit is strongly recommended to prevent imbalances.

Osteopathy is also recommended:

  • Following a traumatism: road accident, fall ...

  • For pregnant women: lumbar pain, sciatica, reflux, postpartum ...

  • For babies: plagiocephaly, colitis, disturbed sleep, stiff neck ...

  • For children: morphological disorders, support for the growth ...

  • For athletes: preparation before and after a competition

But osteopathy has its limits and does not pretend to cure everything!
