In order to fully address the patient’s condition, Body & Soul – Medical Clinics offer osteopathic consultations. Osteopathy is a distinctive and complete system of health care to promote proper function of the body by correcting mechanical imbalances within and between the body structures (muscles, bones, ligaments, organs and connective tissue). The philosophy of osteopathy is focused on all parts of the body functioning together and in an integrated manner. If one part of the body is restricted, the rest of the body must adapt and compensate, eventually leading to inflammation, pain and other health conditions.
The goal of osteopathy is to correct the mechanical imbalances in the structures by restoring, improving and maintaining the harmonious working of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. The benefits of osteopathy are:
- Improved blood circulation
- Higher energy levels
- Increased sense of wellbeing
- Improved posture patterns
- Improved biomechanical patterns
- Greater flexibility and movement
- Decreased muscular pain and bodily toxicity
Osteopathy can be applied to treat trauma (accidents, birth, surgeries, etc.), posture problems, long term and chronic conditions as well as acute conditions.
