Applications

Osteopathy has many applications including, but not limited to, treating muscular contractions following periods of immobility, increasing the quality and range of motion in joints after muscular strain or joint strain, and breaking down scar tissue caused by trauma. This, in turn, affects the functioning of the whole body via connections with the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Therefore, Osteopathy Manipulative Therapy can bring relief to:

– Orthopaedic and locomotor system: strains and sprains, tendonitis, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, articular pain, scoliosis, pelvic pain, jaw pain, sports injuries…

– Neurological system: cervicobrachial, intercostal and facial nerve pain, cruralgia, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome…

– Cardiovascular system: circulatory problems in the legs, venous congestion, hemorrhoids, palpitations…

– Digestive system: hiatus hernia, heartburn, indigestion, abdominal ballooning, flatulence, hepatobiliary troubles, colitis, constipations, difficulty with digestion, gastritis…

– Genito-urinary system: gynocological pain and dysfunction, UTIs, bed-wetting, prostatitis, functional sterility, sexual trouble, osteopathic follow-up to pregnancy…

– ORL and pulmonary system: rhinititis (the common cold), sinusitis, vertigo, ringing/humming in the ears, head-aches and migraines, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, asthma, allergies…

– Neuro-vegetative system: mild depression, nervousness, anxiety, stress, troubles sleeping, fatigue, spasmophilia…

– Immune and lymphatic system: to improve the innate defences and reduce the healing time necessary during/following an illness…

– Infants and children: The stresses of birth may constitute one’s first trauma, and can be the cause of diverse and frequent subsequent pathologies: strabismus, gastro-oesophageal reflux, chronic rhinitis, chronic otitis, troubles sleeping, behavioral problems, dyslexia…, and while growing: scoliotic postures, poor occlusion of teeth…
