Is kind of manual medicine and primary health care system, complementary to other medical system aim to restore normal body structural mechanics and normal physiological function to treat wide range of medical conditions, diseases and pain though looking to the body as whole, encouraging self-healing mechanism and improving body fluidity and circulation through a non-invasive manual techniques called Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) such as myofascial release, stretching, joint mobilization, visceral manipulation and cranial manipulation
Osteopathy is based on scientific background, informed by evidence, considering patient's preference and patient-focused approach.
An approach of osteopathic medicine that focus on examining musculoskeletal mechanical dysfunctions including fascia, muscle, ligaments, joints, rib cage and spine and treatment of related disorders of musculoskeletal system through skillful safe manipulative techniques.
Musculoskeletal osteopathy can help wide range of musculoskeletal disorders including acute and chronic conditions, such as:
⁃ Back pain including disc lesions and sciatica
⁃ Neck pain including disc lesions and referred neural pain
⁃ Joints pain and dysfunction resulted from arthritis, sport injuries, post-fractures, or post-surgeries
⁃ Muscles pain, spasm and tension related to diseases or injuries and fibromyalgia
⁃ Postural problems including scoliosis
An approach of osteopathic medicine that focus on examining visceral mechanical dysfunctions including fascia, organs, ligaments attachment that affect physiology and causing different symptoms, and treatment using visceral manipulation to release the restriction of fascia, organs, ligamentous , and viscerospasms that resulted from previous surgeries, illness, postural problems, injury or psychological problems through gentle safe manipulative techniques.
Visceral osteopathy can help to resolve many of visceral problems such as:
⁃ irritable bowel syndrome including bloating, abdominal pain and chronic constipation.
⁃ Acid reflux
⁃ Nausea and poor digestion
⁃ Urinary problems such as incontinence, urgency and neurogenic bladder
⁃ Breathing problems related or unrelated to chest diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive
⁃ Women's health related problems such as pelvic floor pain and dysfunction and period problems
An approach of osteopathic medicine that focus on examining cranial mechanical dysfunctions including: fascia of the head, cranial bone mobility, sutures mobility, membranous meningeal movement, fluidity, and rhythmic respiratory mechanism of central nervous system, and treatment of related cranial problems through gentle safe manipulative techniques.
Cranial osteopathy can help to treat many cranial and central nervous system related disorders and injuries such as:
⁃ Headache including migraines, tension-type headache, and cervical-genic headache
⁃ Jaw problems including: TMJ dysfunction, swallowing problem, and speech problems
⁃ Trigeminal neuralgia
⁃ Ear problems such as vertigo, dizziness, tinnitus and recurrent infections
⁃ Neurological diseases such as cerebral palsy, Bell's palsy, traumatic brain injury and multiple sclerosis.
An approach of osteopathic medicine that focus on treatment of babies and children with different medical and psychological condition by holistic approach aiming to restore normal physiological function and enhancing inherent healing process through correcting structural disturbances by very gentle and safe manipulative methods to the musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial systems Pediatric Osteopathy can help different conditions such as:
⁃ Birth traumas and skull deformities
⁃ Feeding and sucking problems
⁃ Frequent vomiting and loss of appetite
⁃ Colic and sleeping disorders
⁃ Ear recurrent infections
⁃ Speech problems
⁃ Neurological disorders such as Cerebral palsy, Hydrocephalus
⁃ Psychological problems such as Autism and hyperactivity disorder
