Towards self-healing

An Osteopath with the help ofvarious non invasive tests can analyze the motion range of the bones, limbs, the internal organs of the body, the Fascial system and the craniosacral system. That allows the doctor to correctly employ the gentle but efficacious technique to stimolate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Osteopathy codifies the signal that the body expresses with its movement with various degree of intensity. This practice only employs manual techniques where sensibility and precision are required in order to comunicate with the tissues and to liberate them, removing even the smallest obstacles, to improve the circulation and to restore balance.

Manual techniques

An Osteopath pays special attention to the integrity of the musculoskeletal systemwhere biomechanical pathologies could be associated with the alterations in the organ system. To adjust these dysfunctions, an Osteopath employs specific manual therapy techniques which may vary from joint mobilization, muscle tension-relieve techniques, to craniosacral and visceral techniques.

Determination of dysfunctions

An Osteopathic Consult determines the dysfunctions and evaluates the movement-spectrum of various systems. The Osteopath has to unveil the underlying issue, which may not have the most evident connection to the symptom itself. The Osteopath has to be extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and has to have an exceptional sense of touch. The Consult is to determine whether the issue is the Osteopath’s competence, with the help of various laboratory tests and other diagnostic exams.

Osteopathic Approach


From an Osteopath’s standpoint there is always a correlation between the part where pain presents and the parts that are connected to it.For instance, back pain that can be low back pain or low back sciatic pain, from an Osteopath’s standpoint would need to be analyzed in relation to the anatomic connections in the lower back. Or, another example, lower back pain or abnormal gait can have origins in the hypertensive psoas, that in its turn can be provoked by the biomechanical relationship between the spine and the lower limb, or even by the irritated intestine walls relating to the psoas. Low back pain that arises due to pregnancy or heavy abdomen is provoked by the overstrain of the back muscles that compensate for the excessive weight.


Quite often trauma induced injuries or sports injuries require an osteopathic intervention in order to realign and reset the mobility of singular vertebrae that determine the correct functions of the whole spine. In the same wayorgans that contain a lot of blood can be a cause for some vertebrae issues after accidents because the vertebrae would be particularly sensitive to any change of position that occurs during a fall or an impact. Another example would be pyramidalis muscle or piriformis muscle and the relation to the sciatic nerve. A contracture of this muscle can provoke sciatica, along with all kinds of pathologies of the hip that add severe pain and muscle irritation. All that can amplify the low back pain.
