Both osteopaths in our team have been trained and have worked for several years in the UK. They use osteopathic approaches as well as cranio- sacral therapy options to treat muscular problems, joint stiffness, neck – and back pain and tissue contractures.
They have a vast experience applying either manipulation or mobilization techniques. The benefit of having digital radiographic imaging available allows to immediately clarify the safeness of those treatment options before applying them.
By moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints, Osteopathy aims to detect, treat and prevent health problems including back pain, neck pain, arthritis and sports injuries.
The treatment finds its roots in the principle that well-being depends on the smooth and correct functioning of an individuals’ bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue. Osteopaths use physical manipulation, massage, and stretching with as aim:
- increasing the mobility of joints,
- relieving muscle tension,
- enhancing the blood supply to tissues helping the body to heal.
