Osteopathy is the study of the inside effects which come from the structure. It is based on Anatomy, Physiology and Semiology.
The GLOBAL VISION AND HOLISTIC TREATMENT is what differentiates it from the rest of health disciplines. The treatment depends on a complete body evaluation, on the type of injury and on the patient. No treatment is equal to another and a unique personal approach must always be followed.
Osteopathy is an imperative specialization in the treatment of any pathology of the human body. It understands the body as a unity, and it treats any kind of tissues. It normalises the body and keeps it balanced and stable.
The osteopathic treatment has its base on: “Any change in the mobility of the visceral, structural and skull system, drives into a functional disorder which, at the same time, can lead to a clinical picture.”
The Osteopaths in our Centre started studying Physiotherapy at University. Then, they studied during six more years to get their degree in Osteopathy, C.O. or D.O. in the Osteopathy School of Madrid (EOM), in Alcalá de Henares, in collaboration with the Department of Anatomy and Human Embryology of the Medical College of the University of Alcalá de Henares (UAH).
They are six years of an intense study of the Human Anatomy, Biomechanics (how the different parts of the body move “ Structural, Visceral and Skull”), Physiology (their functions) and Pathology (illness).
In the USA, Osteopathy is a speciality in Medical Studies, leading to a degree named “Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine” (DO).
- Structural Osteopathy
Devoted to the re-establishment of the musculoskeletal system and the posture, focusing on the spine and articular dysfunctions.
- Skull Osteopathy
Aimed at skull problems and their influence in the Central and Peripheral Nervous System.
- Visceral Osteopathy
Focussed towards the healing of organs and viscera. It improves their operation through manual manipulation. Any changes in the mobility of the visceral system leads to a functional disorder that, at the same time, can lead to a clinical picture.
