What is Osteopathy
Osteopathy is a manual therapy which aims at restoring mobility in the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, muscles, ligaments).
We use a variety of techniques and some of them target the nervous system, they are called manipulations. Most of the time they are quick and you may hear a cavitation in the joint, but no pain !
Your Osteopath always uses the safest and most appropriate technique to suit to your problem. Feel free to ask him any questions during the session.
The session includes a case history of your present and past medical conditions, and observation of your gait and posture, test and treatment techniques. You may have some homework exercises to perform regularly to keep the efficiency of the session. (1 hour duration)
