What is Osteopathy Medicine? Osteopathy is an alternative treatment method similar to chiropractic treatments. It focuses mainly on the spine, muscles and joints of the body which make up its musculoskeletal framework. The aim of this treatment method is to promote overall health without performing any invasive procedures. In this treatment method, everything is done manually. This means that all the actions performed by the osteopath would be done using their hands alone. They improve the circulation of blood throughout the body and correct any alterations made to the body’s biomechanics. Osteopathy is a rapidly growing field and is becoming increasingly popular among people as it doesn’t involve the use of drugs.


Uses of Osteopathy Osteopathy treatments are being used for treating a variety of different conditions. People suffering from joint pains can find pain relief through this treatment method. Moreover, patients of arthritis have also found this method of treatment quite useful. You can visit an osteopath if you are having pain in any part of your musculoskeletal framework. This includes your knees, hips, ankles and feet. In addition to this, an osteopath can also help you if you are experiencing pain in your back or neck. Osteopathy has also been found to be very effective in treating sports-related injuries and postural problems associated with pregnancy. How are Osteopathy Treatments Performed? Since osteopathy is a form of manual medicine, it doesn’t involve the use of any machines or technology for either diagnosis or treatment. The osteopath listens to the complaints of the patient before beginning the initial examination. This examination is purely physical and may take up to 2 hours to complete. During this physical exam, the osteopath would be assessing the posture and mobility of the patient. After this exam, a technique by the name of Palpation is used for checking the health of the tissues, ligaments and joints. The osteopath would then come up with a personalized plan for the patient which may include sessions with the osteopath and exercises to be done at home. Sometimes your osteopath might even suggest lifestyle adjustments and changes to your diet.
