Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is an exclusively hands-on therapy that helps re-balance a person’s structure and improving body function. It uses gentle and safe techniques that are adapted to each patient, depending on age, sex, and general health. The frequency of the sessions is highly variable: it depends on each case and the severity of the patient's issue.

When to consult an osteopath:

  • During and after pregnancy
  • During birth and infancy (during times of important developmental changes)
  • After significant falls or accidents
  • During or after a period of stress or emotional difficulty

Osteopathy aids in:

  • back pain, sciatica, arthritis, osteo-arthritis, tendinitis, sports injuries ...
  • falls, injuries and trauma ...
  • headaches, migraines, stress
  • digestive problems (constipation, heartburn, irritable bowel, slow digestion)
  • circulatory disorders
  • respiratory disorders (bronchitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, lung disease, asthma, COPD) and ORLG
  • problems associated with pregnancy
  • pediatric conditions: plagiocephaly, colic, reflux, impaired growth and posture, scoliosis, sleep disorders, hyperactivity, learning disabilities
  • genitourinary disorders

What Can Osteopathy Treat?:

The Musculoskeltal System
Osteopathy is effective for all problems involving the vertebral column (upper, middle, or lower back pain; pelvic imbalance; scoliosis; sciatic pain; etc.) It also helps treat more distant problems such as epicondylitis and hip, knee, ankle, and foot problems.

The Visceral Organs
Osteopathy has good results with treating acute or chronic digestive problems, liver and intestinal problems, and hernias. Some gynecological disorders also respond well to ostepathy. You should always have appropriate medical examinations.

The Cranium
Sometimes osteopathy can alleviate migraines and headaches. It can also help with sensory problems such as strabismus in children, sinusitis, nasopharyngeal problems, inflammation of the ear, etc.

Other Problems
Osteopathy may be helpful for fatigue, periods of exhaustion, mild depression, stress, and other conditions.

Pregnancy and Birth
During pregnancy, the body undergoes many important structural changes. Osteopathy helps women adapt to these changes without pain or complications, in harmony with the growing fetus.

Pediatric Osteopathy

Birth is an infant’s first trauma. The skull is still very flexible and can become pushed or deformed. If the mechanical forces on the cranium are too strong, they can cause significant damage:

  • Behavioral problems such as nervousness, hyperactivity, or indifference
  • Sleep disorders
  • Delays in motor development (sitting, crawling, walking)
  • Digestive problems such as suction, abnormal reflux, and intestinal problems
  • Sinusitis or otitis
  • Torticollis
  • Scoliosis
