„An osteopath is only a human engineer, who should understand all the laws governing his engine and thereby master disease.“
— Andrew Taylor Still
What is osteopathy ???
Osteopathic medicine (osteopathy) has been a recognized therapeutic practice in the healthcare system for over 130 years. Osteopathy is a field of medicine that integrates clinical knowledge with manual diagnostic skills and hands-on therapy. Osteopathic treatments attempt to resolve the underlying dysfunction of movement in the spine and joints, internal organs, and nerves that contribute to the onset or recurrence of the disease.
Who is Osteopath ???
There are a few ways to become an osteopath, have to sign up for a course and finish a training program leading to a bachelor’s degree in osteopathy (BSc Hons, BOst) or a master’s degree in osteopathy (MOst). A degree program involves anatomy, physiology, pathologies, pharmacology, nutrition, biomechanics and at least 1,100 hours of clinical experience. Courses typically last four years full-time or five years part-time.
What Osteopath can treat ???
Chronic and acute spinal pain conditions
like disc problems in the lower back or neck,
joint pain (shoulder pain, shoulder impingement, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, golfers elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome).
Sports injuries like a groin strain, thigh or hamstring strain, knee injuries, calf pain, ankle sprains, Achilles tendon injuries
Headaches and dizziness of the spinal origin, temporomandibular joint dysfunctions
What else ???
Functional problems within internal organs:
asthma, digestion problems, symptoms of gastro-oesophagal reflux, Irritable Bowel Syndrome/Disease (IBS, IBD).
Diagnosis and therapy of postural and structural disorders in children and adults. Problems in infants and children: Latching problems, reflux, colitis, constipation, torticollis, head asymmetry (plagiocephaly), blockage of the tear duct, recurring ear, nose and sinus infections or asthma.
Osteopathy during pregnancy
Osteopathy during and post-pregnancy can help with commonly occurring problems like back pain, pelvic girdle pain, sciatica or rib pain. The osteopath’s objective is straightforward: to ensure that each structure is in its best place and has optimal mobility and motility. When a body structure is free of limitations it may move and express itself normally, which allows the system to work properly. Not only will a restricted structure perform poorly, but it will almost certainly restrict other structures, so reducing their performance, and so on. The osteopath’s primary goal is to determine the etiology of dysfunction.
