Our body is a precise and complex mechanism. We perform thousands of movements daily. Most often, these are complex movements involving many muscles, tendons, ligaments, and many joints.
A movement that is a little too forced, a direct trauma, or even a posture defect lead to small losses of mobility at the osteo-articular level every day,visceralOrcranial. When our body's ability to adapt is exceeded, that is to say when certain movements are no longer possible, there is discomfort, pain, blockage...
Osteopathy makes it possible to gently, naturally and sustainably treat many functional disorders linked to these mobility losses. Osteopathy is curative, but it is above all preventive: consult your osteopath at least once or twice a year.

Accompaniment of the sick

In parallel with a medical follow-up, osteopathy can accompany a patient whose pathology requires heavy care. A treatment may have a beneficial effect on:

  1. The pain

  • Pain may be felt in the diseased area and around it.​

  • When they are very localized, they are the result of local inflammation, signifying the activation of healing processes. ​

  • When they are at a distance, painful muscles and joints reflect fatigue in the area. This phenomenon, which is frequent and normal, is related to the symptoms of the disease.  The pain is mainly linked to the postural attitudes adopted during the treatment and recovery periods, which can be debilitating. ​

  • Imposed rest and difficulty in moving disturb the function and balance of the body structure. Osteopathy is effective in reducing the pain associated with this ankylosis.​

2.   ​Healing 

Balancing the musculo-ligamentous tensions of the regions through which the blood vessels and nerves intended for the diseased area pass, will make it possible to accelerate healing by mobilizing the body's entire self-healing system. ​
