What is osteopathy?

Effective treatment for: Back pain, pain in the migraines, insomnia...

Osteopathy is based on manual techniques aimed at restoring the mobility of the different structures of the body. It is based on the idea that any loss of mobility of muscles, tendons, viscera, skull or envelopes(fascia) induces dysfunctions of the organism.

Osteopaths therefore aim to put this body mechanics back into function with the aim of creating a regulation of all the physico-chemical parameters of the body. They mainly treat physical and psychosomatic dysfunctions.

The osteopath has different therapeutic approaches that he considers adapted to the specific needs of the patient. These include:

  • passive joint mobilization techniques
  • active joint mobilization techniques
  • reflex techniques
  • mobilization techniques for soft and peri-osseous structures
  • psycho-cognitive techniques


Palpation looks for somatic dysfunctions in all tissues of the body. Apart from the examination, the hand is the essential tool for both diagnosis and treatment. Osteopathy addresses the whole body. This would explain why the action of osteopathy on the body is not local, but affects the whole body. The osteopathic techniques would have a beneficial action on the following fields:

  • the locomotor system: certain rheumatisms, lumbagos, sprains, torticollis
  • the visceral system: some constipation, diarrhea, bloating and irritable bowel syndrome,…
  • the “cranial” system: certain headaches, chronic otitis, vertigo, buzzing, blocked noses, chronic sinusitis, infant colic, difficult children who cry often, insomnia, dyslexia and problems related to learning, memory, concentration and facial neuralgia
