Osteopathy is a vitalistic medicine in which the patient's body is viewed as a single, self-healing mechanism and in which the osteopath deals directly with the root cause of the disease.

It is also a branch of soft manual therapy in which the osteopath's hands are used for both diagnosis and treatment.

Only in a few countries, including ours, some osteopathic schools divide osteopathy into 3 sections - structural, visceral and cranial, graduating students of a "narrow" osteopathic specialization, teaching only some areas, which discredits this profession.

Classical osteopathy combines all these areas and more. A fully trained specialist works with the musculoskeletal system, visceral (internal organs), cranial (skull), fascial, reproductive, nervous, circulatory, etc., generally speaking, with the whole organism.

The list below demonstrates that osteopathic treatment is cost effective and can significantly reduce a patient's need for medical treatment by exposing them to fewer diagnostic tests and reducing the risk of complications.

You also need to understand that osteopathy is not an ambulance, but restorative medicine.
