Physiotherapy with an osteopathic approach is a manual therapy discipline. Its main goal is to help restore the human body's natural equilibrium and harmony. It is a discipline based on the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body. The patient is treated with a global approach, so rather than simply treating the symptom, the body is treated as a whole entity. Patients of all ages can benefit from an osteopathic approach.
The osteopathic approach, with the use of different techniques, will treat the body on many different levels such as articular, visceral, cranial and fascial. This approach differentiates itself from others because it is aimed at discovering the cause of the problem rather than simply focusing on the symptoms. The key is to keep the different structures of the human body mobile. A loss in mobility causes functional as well as circulatory and/or nervous limitations. This loss in mobility can cause repercussions locally and possibly distally by forcing the body to compensate in other areas in order to maintain its equilibrium.
The job of the physiotherapist with an osteopathic approach is to make sure that the different elements of the body remain mobile in order to allow the body to function properly and remain healthy.
In hopes of offering optimal care to our patients, physiotherapy with an osteopathic approach has become one of the essential services offered at Action Sport Physio.
