What can osteopathy treat?

Osteopathy applies to all ages, from the newborn to the elderly, from the pregnant to the experienced athlete or musician.

Osteopathy is used for treating:

  • Back pain, sciatica, neck pain
  • Joint pain (e.g. knee, shoulder, jaw)
  • Traumatic spinal problems (e.g. whiplash, lower back pain, falls) or compensatory spinal problems (e.g. differences in leg length, scoliosis)
  • Migraines, headaches
  • Rheumatic or degenerative pain (e.g. arthritis)
  • Digestive problems, gastric reflux
  • Urogenital and gynaecological problems (e.g. painful periods)
  • Chronic infections (e.g. urinary tract infections, sinusitis, ear infections)
  • Functional disorders during pregnancy (e.g. sciatica, rib pain, indigestion)
  • Preparing the pelvis for childbirth, pregnancy care

In newborns, osteopathy can help regulate sleep problems, colic, gastric reflux, difficulties in latching-on and difficulties acquiring new psychomotor skills (e.g. walking).

Osteopathy is also recommended for disorders of dental occlusion (misalignment of the teeth and jaw) parallel or in conjunction with orthodontic treatment.

Finally, osteopathy is for anyone who wants to take care of their body and so works to prevent the onset of certain functional disorders.
