Osteopathy is a holistic method of treatment. The osteopath's hands alone are sufficient for a diagnosis and for treatment. If blockages are found in one or more systems, they are dissolved with gentle, sometimes firmer, manipulations of the tissues to give a free circulation of fluids and thus an optimal ground for self-healing.
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. Thus, a voluntary change in function, for example, due to an incorrect load, can change the structure (for example, form calcium deposits), while a change in body structures, which can be caused by an accident, among other things, affects the function. The osteopath strives to activate the often disturbed self-healing powers and thereby achieve a completely natural healing. In a precise anamnesis and diagnosis, the osteopath looks for blockages or movement restrictions (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. The structural system is the musculoskeletal system with the spine and all joints, the fascia system, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The next system is the visceral system, which includes all organs of the body. The third system is the cranio-sacral system, which is the bones of the skull (cranium), the sacrum (sacrum), the membranes such as the meninges of the brain and spinal cord, and the fluids such as cerebrospinal fluid.
