Osteopathy is a manual therapy developed in the 20th century by an American doctor: Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. Osteopathy is based on practitioners' manual know-how, as well as their in-depth knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body.
Osteopaths develop a sensitive and precise palpation technique over 5 years of training. This palpation technique helps them assess the loss of mobility and aid the various structures that make up the human body. Whether these restrictions are subtle or obvious, they can affect the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments or guts, and thus cause an imbalance in a person's overall health.
Osteopathy aims to restore the biomechanical balance of a person to prevent, reduce or eliminate various ailments and symptoms.
||| Warning ||| The osteopath is no substitute for your family doctor. Refer to your general practitioner's opinion for a particular health condition. You could consult a physiotherapist if your condition requires a personalized exercise plan or physical rehabilitation. The osteopath, by precise manual intervention of body tissues, does not claim to cure people, but rather support them in their search for well-being in the face of physical discomfort of all kinds.
