General indications for osteopathic treatments
Osteopathy is a systemic manual medicine in which the human is placed in a holistic perspective.
Basically, an osteopathic treatment is about restoring the mobility, elasticity and functions of the various body structures. Biomechanical and myofascial conflicts are treated through manual techniques, which are activating the body's individual self-healing capacity and normalizing the functional balance of the individual.
Osteopathy is based on the principle that all body systems (bone, blood, nervous, lymphatic and hormone systems etc.) are connected and depend on a mutual cooperation. On the parietal level, the supporting structures of the body (bones, muscles and fascia) are been treated. In the visceral system, the therapist is focusing on the internal organs and their mobility. In the craniosacral system, the mobility of the cranial bones and the sacrum are being stimulated.
Osteopathy differs from other manual therapies by its broad spectrum of techniques: from very gentle, such as craniosacral, to manipulative techniques. The entire treatment is adapted to the age and constitution of the patient.
An osteopathic treatment brings the body back into balance, enabling faster recovery.

The human body is a marvel that is always trying to heal itself and is very forgiving. However, by acting "against" our body every day, we lose important energy and harm ourselves in the long run. In osteopathy, these weaker areas can be identified and treated ahead of time. This saves valuable time, avoids pain and prevents injuries that can lead to inability to work or play sports.
Prevention and the realization of long-term solutions are not only part of the basic principles of osteopathy, but are also important goals in our everyday lives. An essential part of the process is the sensitization of the patient so that he knows the cause of his health problems. Creating an action plan to prevent ailments is key to living a fit and healthy life.
Just as dental checkups are on the schedule at least once a year, regular visits to the osteopath are also very useful. Even if there is no pain or discomfort at the time of the appointment.
