What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a medical theory that deals with diagnosis and healing using unique manual therapy techniques. The osteopathic treatment, which complements general medicine, focuses on the causes that create the pain and imbalance in the body.

The human body can withstand life’s challenges under the condition that all body systems function together in harmony. The body has the inherent capacity to maintain balance and repair itself. For various reasons (such as illness, trauma, or chronic problems) the function of organs or regions of the body may be impaired; these local problems radiate to nearby organs, and eventually, to the entire body.

The osteopath has the capacity to diagnose the root cause leading to the causal chain of problems and address their source. The osteopathic treatment restores balance and mobility to the affected area and thus generates a chain reaction of improved functioning – a self-healing process.

Treatment of back pain

Osteopathy is a Manual Therapy

Osteopathy is a touch therapy in which the therapist’s hands constitute the main means of treatment, excluding instruments or drugs. Diagnosis is performed through observation and palpation of the problematic tissues and organs; the palpation reveals subtle differences in stiffness and flexibility, temperature, mobility, texture and moisture.


The therapist might use medical tests such as X-rays, CT scans and blood tests. During treatment, the osteopath uses his hands to apply moderate pressure and to gently stretch, mobilize, and manipulate body parts in order to loosen rigid and immobile regions, restore regular function, and stimulate a recovery process. The osteopath’s ability to do so is not incidental; it is the result of a skillful and educated command of human anatomy and physiology.
