Osteopathy is a manual medicine that can help preventing, diagnosing and treating disorders that involve:
- the neuromusculoskeletal system
- the craniosacral system (binding the skull, spine and sacrum)
- the visceral system (mobility of visceral organs).
Some of the disorders effectively treated with osteopathy:
- cervical and spine pain in general
- postural decompensations
- TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, i.e., related to teeth, gums, muscles or jaw joints
- gastrointestinal disorders
- … and much more.
During the session, the osteopath performs a global assessment of the patient with specific and manual tests, as well as diagnostic tests, if available (e.g. x-rays, MRI, etc.), to detect the possible causes of the disorder. Based on the outcome of the assessment, the osteopath identifies the most suitable techniques to reduce the pain and recover the psychophysical functions and well-being.
Osteopathy has an extremely wide range of action and is suitable for people of all ages and conditions: from the newborn to the elderly, from adolescents to pregnant women.
