What is osteopathy?

“Osteopathy is a first line medical practice (without medical prescription). It is defined as a diagnostic and therapeutic approach to functional pathologies of the musculoskeletal system and the peripheral nervous system. “

Like the 6-year university course, osteopathy in our centre aims to be up-to-date from a scientific research point of view.

Who is it for?

From infants to the elderly, osteopathy offers a therapeutic response adapted to each patient. It will therefore take into account :

  • the age ;
  • medical history
  • the current medical treatment;
  • tissue fragility (bone, ligament, muscle, neurological, etc.)
  • the professional situation;
  • the imaging examinations carried out;
  • the patient’s possible reluctance to perform certain types of techniques;
  • interactions with other health professionals and the treatment strategy that your multidisciplinary team will put in place (doctors, physiotherapists, midwives, chiropodists, dentists, etc.).
