What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy; It is a discipline that aims to work on the musculoskeletal system, internal organs, spine, fascia, nervous system and circulatory system, to ensure that they can function in harmony for the continuity of health. It is a holistic approach.

It tries to activate the body's self-healing potential by stimulating the proper functioning of the movement, circulation, nervous system and organs in the body. Thus, improvement can be achieved in the body.

Osteopathy is accepted as a diagnosis and treatment method by WHO (World Health Organization). Osteopathy is based on the principles of anatomy and physiology. Every system in the body must work in harmony with each other. Failure in one of these systems disrupts the general functioning of the body, which causes dysfunctions in the body. This causes pain as a result of dysfunctions. These dysfunctions are detected and tried to be treated.

 

OSTEOPAT HELPS THE PATIENT WITH 3 DIFFERENT APPROACHES:

1- Parietal Osteopathy; Used in the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. It covers the treatment of joints, bones, muscles, ligaments and all fascia groups in the body.

 

2- Visceral Ostepathy; It treats the problems in visceral structures such as digestion, breathing, circulation, reproduction and eliminates the pain and problems caused by them. Visceral problems, except for pathological problems, can cause pain that we know as reflected pain in the waist, back, shoulder, neck, that is, in all spine and joints. Our internal organs are not in the air, they are attached to our spine.

3- Cranial Osteopathy; It encourages the elimination of the tension caused by stress on the head and the whole body with gentle and light touches on the skull. By using the sturlar, the joints of the skull, the pressure on the cranial nerves is removed. Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) circulation is normalized.
