Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy in Kiev Wellness International
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.
