A HOLISTIC LOOK AT TREATMENT

Osteopathy is a field of diagnosis and treatment with over a hundred years of tradition. Its main premise is to treat the human body as an integral whole in which related processes occur. According to this principle, osteopathic examination cannot focus solely on one selected part of the body, and its task is primarily to find the primary dysfunction of the body, which may seem to be unrelated to current ailments. Importantly, osteopathy as a field using clinical diagnostic methods is not an alternative to academic medicine, but it is a perfect complement.

OSTEOPATHY IS FOLLOWED BY THE FOLLOWING POLICIES:

  • the body is one
  • body structure and processes occurring in it are interrelated,
  • the body has the ability to self-regulate, self-heal and maintain balance (homeostasis). Osteopathy believes in the body’s natural forces, which when properly stimulated can overcome the disease.
