Osteopathy is a holistic approach to health

What osteopath treats

Osteopathy as a non-drug treatment has appeared relatively recently. The founder of this trend in medicine is an American surgeon A. T. Still. Eventually, this trend has become very popular, and was officially recognized in the United States and Europe.

The basic principles of osteopathy

The basis of osteopathy is considering the human body as a single unit. It’s the connection between external and internal. It’s the unity of the musculoskeletal, nervous, circulatory and hormonal systems and internal organs. As a result of this approach to the human body, the doctor osteopath does not treat the disease of some particular organ, but the whole system of human life.


Methods of treatment and diagnosis

The main tool of the osteopath is his hands. An experienced specialist on the basis of muscle tension, displacement of the bones, tensioning tendons and rhythm of the internal organs can make an accurate diagnosis. Frequently such diagnosis is more accurate than the one that is diagnosed with the help of expensive modern equipment. Also on the basis of the examination, the doctor is able to identify the root cause of the disease. The treatment of the patient is carried out using the hands, however, unlike manual therapy, this treatment is not stressful. Soft and painless relaxation of the muscles and connective tissues removes the source of stress completely – the root cause of the disease.
