OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy is a method of care using manual techniques to ensure the conservation or restoration of the various structures within the body. In other words, osteopathy considers that there is an interdependence between the structure of the body and the way it functions.

 

Osteopathy is highly based on the human body’s own ability to self-regulate. The osteopathic approach considers the patient in his globality.

 

It can be preventive and curative but will not substitute medical attention or other therapies if necessary or mandated.

 

It is a drugless, hands-on, non-invasive method of treatment.
