Osteopathy is a gentle method, suitable for adults who are active, as well as amateur or professional sportsmen. It is also intended for people who are sedentary or subject to occupational risks.
According to osteopathy, physical and psychological ailments are reflected throughout the body. Thus, bad postures, accidents, stress, and others can be at the origin of several disturbed systems (musculoskeletal, digestive, vascular, neurological, hormonal, etc.) and consequently certain pathologies.
Osteopathy makes it possible to recover better, for example, during various consecutive physical traumas such as accidents or resulting from surgical operations. The osteopath will thus contribute to the return and maintenance of the balance of health.
The osteopath establishes first of all a “specific osteopathic diagnosis” by an analysis of what the body expresses (symptoms, restrictions of tissue mobility). This allows him to determine hypotheses about the origin of the disorders felt and to assess the impact of the environment or lifestyle on the body of each.
Osteopathy makes everyone aware that he is responsible for his health, which is no longer considered as the reverse of the disease, but as a quality of existence and the ability to flourish.
The therapeutic action of osteopathy will consist, secondly, in soliciting and facilitating the natural restorative functions of the body, by stimulating the mechanisms of self-regulation as well as by avoiding the harmful accumulation of restricted areas of mobility. tissue.
However, like all other disciplines, osteopathy does not pretend to cure everything.
