Osteopathy


Osteopathy is an assessment and treatment system, with its own methodology and philosophy, which aims to restore the function of body structures and systems, acting through manual intervention on tissues (joints, muscles, fasciae, ligaments, capsules, viscera, nervous tissue vascular and lymphatic). It was created by Andrew Taylor Still, in the USA. The field of osteopathy treatment covers the entire human body and can treat: sciatica, low back pain, back pain, cervical pain, scoliosis, herniated discs, torticollis, sprains, tendinitis, epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndromes, shoulder pain, joint problems temporomandibular (TMJ) and muscle tension and contractures.

Society has been characterized by rapid economic, technological and socio-cultural changes. As a result, the health sciences have evolved as a body of knowledge and own knowledge, which has an epistemological basis and is defined through the scientific method and research. In this context, the TNC (Non Conventional Techniques) - where osteopathy is inserted - have been affirmed as a complement to conventional medicine and as an important element in the practice of health care for the western population. The increase in the popularity of TNCs calls for consideration of their context in public health, and places Osteopathy in the vast field of complementary therapies in the health sciences.

Being versatile and versatile, Osteopathy views the body as a “whole” in its evaluation and treatment process, using soft tissue, bone, visceral and neural techniques, identifying the primary cause of the dysfunction.

Osteopathy: What is it? What is it based on? How did it come about?

Osteopathy is an instrument at the service of manual therapists. It is a knowledge of the health area that emerged in the USA, with Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917). The term "osteopathy" comes from the Greek osteom ("bone") and phatos ("effect from the inside"). Osteopathy then means the influence of the disease, its causes and its treatments. It is an evaluation and treatment system, with its own philosophy and methodology, and aims to restore the function of body structures and systems. By focusing on manual intervention on tissues (joints, muscles, fasciae, ligaments, capsules, viscera, nervous, vascular and lymphatic tissue), it seeks to restore lost mobility and provide the balance that the skeletal, visceral and cranial muscle system needs , maintaining the elasticity of the connective tissue in all its systems.

Osteopathy is based on anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and semiology. It should not be considered esoteric, but Cartesian. Does not obey recipes. But first it offers a treatment that is based on the clinical examination and the patient's clinical history

The major purpose of osteopathy is to restore mobility to the structure, taking into account the anatomical, circulatory, hormonal and nervous environment, within the psychological context of each individual.

It is an autonomous and independent system of diagnosis and treatment that promotes the minimization or resolution of structural and functional problems, always considering the interrelations between mobility and motility of the organism.

 

 

What materials are most used by osteopaths?

Osteopaths do not use many accessory materials, as their work is essentially manual.

For diagnosis they can use:

  • Stethoscope
  • Tuning fork


To complement and / or carry out the treatment you can use:

  • Cold effect creams / gels
  • Massage creams hot effect
  • Balm hot effect
  • Functional bandages - tapes
  • Functional bandages - pre-tapes
  • Functional bandages - cohesive elastics
  • Kinesium
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Gloves, normally used when creams are applied or the skin is not whole
