Osteopathy is a holistic treatment method. Osteopaths only need their hands for diagnosis and treatment. If blockages are found in one or more systems, these are resolved with gentle, sometimes even firmer, manipulations of the tissues in order to provide free circulation of the fluids and thus an optimal floor for self-healing.
Kathrin Wiesmüller is an osteopath in training. She also works as a physiotherapist and carries out craniosacral therapies at our clinic. Since 2003, Ms. Wiesmüller has been there as a physiotherapist with great enthusiasm and commitment for her patients; for several years, osteopathy has been added as a treatment spectrum.
What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy distinguishes between body structures (for example bones, muscles, organs, nerves) and body functions (for example blood circulation and digestion). Structure and function influence each other. For example, an arbitrary change in function, for example due to incorrect loading, can change the structure (e.g. form limescale deposits), while a change in body structures, which can be triggered, for example, by an accident, impairs the function. The osteopath strives to activate the often disturbed self-healing powers and thereby achieve a completely natural healing. In an exact anamnesis and diagnosis, the osteopath looks for blockages or dysfunctions in all systems of the body. Symptoms and cause or blockage are often not in the same place.
The body systems can be disturbed
In osteopathy, the body is divided into different systems. In the structural system, which means the locomotor system with the spine and with all joints, the fascial system, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The next system is the visceral system, which means all organs of the body. The third system is the cranio-sacral system, i.e. the cranial bones (cranium), the sacrum, the membranes such as cerebral and spinal cord membranes and fluids such as cerebrospinal fluid.
