Osteopathy In Kiev

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) can be included as a part of osteopathy session. Osteopathy being a unique approach to health care is regarded holistic, meaning affecting the whole body. Osteopathic physicians do not only work with the pathologic areas, but apply certain techniques to achieve equilibrium of all the bodily systems.

Osteopathy methods can be used to treat much more than you can imagine. The most common complaints that are cured by osteopathic manipulation therapy are headaches, back, neck, heel and foot pains, shin splints, tennis elbow, sciatica, and strain injuries. Even various digestive problems, asthma, arthritis, postural problems, carpal tunnel syndrome and whiplash can be effectively treated by this method.

Regular patients for osteopathic manipulation are ones who receive injures while doing sports, at home or while working.

Knowing that all body parts are interconnected and function together allows osteopathic physicians to approach any problematic issue in an integrated manner. Thus, a certain body part with blockages forces the whole body to compensate for this and adapt, which further leads to pains, stiffness, inflammation and other adverse health issues. For patients who have no movement restrictions, osteopaths can alleviate pains, reduce stress and enhance overall mobility ensuring that the body has all the necessary conditions for self-healing.

The main techniques used by osteopathic physicians include a broad range of gentle movements such as deep tactile pressure, soft tissue stretching, and manipulation or mobilization of joints.

Osteopathy Benefits

  • Accurate and fast diagnosis for the whole body.
    The hands of an experienced osteopath detect changes that even precise medical devices are not able to register. Deep knowledge of anatomy and physiology allow them to interpret the pathological areas of the body.
  • Osteopathy is a universal method, as it treats the entire organs or systems, considering the whole body as a symbiosis of internal organs, musculoskeletal framework and nervous system.
  • Osteopathy effectively treats a wide range of diseases, while having the smallest number of contraindications compared to other manual methods. Osteopathy manipulative therapy can be even applied in situations with severe pain syndromes.
  • Osteopathic manipulation therapy has no age restrictions.
    Osteopathy uses exceptionally gentle, soft and safe techniques, which can be recommended even to pregnant and lactating women, babies from the first hours of life and elderly patients.
  • Osteopaths use more than 3,000 techniques.
    A wide range of techniques is necessary for osteopaths to achieve accurate diagnosis and a high level of quality and effectiveness of treatment.

How can an osteopathic physician help a baby?

Osteopathic treatment of newborns is a very frequent case. Even for preventive purposes, it can be justified in 100% to achieve timely diagnosis of pathologies and avoid complications during the development period.

In which cases you should resort to osteopathy for your baby?

  • During 1st and 2nd weeks of life.
    Experts say that this period is the best time take your baby to the osteopathic physician. Actually, many complex issues cannot be solved after 3-4 weeks’ age. Therefore, even for prevention purposes, it is a good idea to visit an osteopath from the 7th to the 28th day of life just after the maternity hospital. Osteopathic physicians can easily find pathologies that might be omitted by other doctors.
  • One of the main indications for osteopathy examination is the cesarean section.
  • Bruises, injuries, even with normal diagnosis according to radiographs.
  • Baby screaming and crying for no apparent reason.
    That is, when the baby does not soothe even after being fed and lullabies in the mother’s laps. Even if the pediatrician gives you a promise that “it will soon pass.”
  • When no effects are achieved from treatment prescribed by the pediatrician, with baby having high anxiety, frequent regurgitation, poor sleep and colics.
  • In case of an elongated or asymmetric shape of the baby’s head (e.g., in cases when forceps are employed during birth, after vacuum extraction or manipulation with crumbs). In this case, it is a best idea to visit an osteopathy physician. Any deformations not only give the skull a strange form, but also can affect the brain functioning. By the end of the first year of life, all the soft spots on the baby’s head become closed, meaning the any head asymmetry corrections are most effective until the complete formation of the bones of the head.
  • Surgery or birth trauma consequences.
  • Delays in development.
  • ENT complications and problems of gastrointestinal system.
  • Perinatal encephalopathy.
  • Blockage of the tear channel. This issue can be solved by 2 to 4 osteopathy sessions.
  • Squint and other vision problems.
  • Allergies.
  • Paralysis of the half body.
  • Epilepsy.
  • 21 chromosome trisomy.

When should you contact an osteopathic physician?

The sooner you take your baby to an osteopath, the easier it will be to perform corrections and the fewer problems will arise in the future. During the first session, you can if not eliminate but at least mitigate all the effects of birth on the crumbs, as well as to improve the overall health condition.

Please note! Visiting an osteopatic physician is not in any way a complete substitution for the treatment and observation of your pediatrician, meaning that both treatments should be a complement to each other!

Osteopath diagnoses the condition of all body systems and conducts effective treatment without pain, without risk to health, and what is the most important — without drugs!
