Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a modality of manual therapy used to address the lack of mobility in the connective tissue to re-establish the function of structures and systems in the human body. It aims to facilitate and optimize one’s capacity to self-regulate through a global approach. The practitioner investigates the root cause of musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial dysfunctions. A variety of techniques (myofascial and muscular techniques, muscles energy techniques, joints mobility techniques, visceral manipulations, cranial therapy…) may be used according to the needs of the patient. The roles of the neurovascular and nervous systems are also considered during the consultation if they are at play with the patient’s complaint. Osteopathy acts as a complementary therapy to conventional medicine.
