Osteopathy is a field of alternative medicine that uses drug-free and non-invasive manual therapy by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework of the body, for the body to heal on its own. An osteopath uses a range of treatments like exercises, relaxation techniques, or body awareness session that helps you understand how to move your body more gently.
According to osteopaths, when the body’s musculoskeletal system is not aligned correctly, it inhibits circulatory, nervous, and the lymphatic system, thus reducing the body’s ability to heal itself. An osteopath can treat a wide variety of problems like back pain, neck pain, headaches, vertigo, inflamed tendons, sports injuries, sciatica, arthritis, sprain in the muscles, etc.
An osteopath, unlike a chiropractor, focuses on your entire body including the muscles, ligaments, tendons, the spine, and the nervous system. They use a variety of hands-on methods, which includes spinal manipulation, gentle rhythmic joint movements (articulation), massages, stretching muscles and joint capsules, encourage muscles to work against resistance (muscle energy technique), and gentle movement of the abdominal and pelvic areas (visceral manipulation).
Osteopaths use techniques that have a gentle approach, so they are suitable for people of all ages and to treat complex medical problems. If you want to know more about osteopathic methods and how it will be beneficial for your health condition, you can consult an osteopath online.
