What is Osteopathy and Benefits of Osteopathic Treatment

Osteopathy is a manual method of influencing the structures of the human body. It allows you to restore the functions of the body and correct anatomical defects in the spine, musculoskeletal system, and internal organs.

The difference between Osteopathy and other manual treatment methods (chiropractic, manual therapy, massage, etc.) is an integrated approach to the body as a whole. The goal of Osteopathy is to eliminate the cause of the disease and activate the body’s defenses.

In this article, we will learn how Osteopathy can benefit you.

Recognized Benefits of Osteopathy

  • Safe

The use of any medications and violation of tissue integrity are excluded. Therefore, it is indicated for almost all people, except those patients who have serious illnesses, such as cancer, tuberculosis, etc. Osteopathic sessions are indicated for women during pregnancy, breastfeeding, newborn children, and the elderly. There are no age restrictions in the course of treatment.

  • Painless

Osteopathy does not entail any pain. The diagnosis and treatment process is carried out only by the doctor’s hands with the help of light touches and pressures.

  • Efficiency

Positive effects of the treatment are observed, as a rule, already after the first session of osteopathic correction. They are fixed within several sessions, which is much less than with other functional treatment methods.

  • The short duration of treatment

The course of treatment is rarely more than 5-7 sessions. Often a smaller amount is enough. The interval between individual sessions is seven to ten days. That is how much time it will take to restore the body and its functions fully.

  • Disease prevention

Osteopathy is a powerful means of preventing diseases by influencing significant body areas, performing general healing, and balancing the nervous system.

After undergoing a course of osteopathic treatment, the body’s functional systems are capable of much greater adaptation and resistance to adverse external influences.
