Osteopathy

Osteopathy: To maintain or restore functional movement

Osteopathy uses active and passive manual techniques. Osteopaths treat the root cause of pain and dysfunction, anywhere in the body (bones, viscera, organs, etc.). They work on the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems, to ensure they are all functioning properly and in harmony with the whole body.

Our professionals treat all age groups, from babies to seniors. Osteopathy is often performed on people who have no symptoms.

When a lingering problem is not resolved with osteopathy, the patient is referred to physiotherapy, acupuncture, or massage therapy, depending on the case.

Osteopaths work together with GPR (global postural reeducation) professionals, who focus on entire muscle groups: two approaches that complement each other to maximize results in cases involving a large number of structures (e.g., scoliosis treated by GPR and visceral issues treated by osteopathy).
