Osteopathy after COVID-19 at Parkland Natural Health Clinic

Osteopathy is a field of clinical medicine, including providing medical care to patients with somatic dysfunctions at the stages of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation based on the anatomical and functional unity of the body and using manual methods that restore the human body’s ability to correct itself.

Almost the entire human body is in the sphere of influence of osteopathy, including the internal organs and structures of the skull. Osteopaths continue improving their techniques and complementing them with new diagnoses and treatment methods. It is a lively, dynamic, modern system of preventive medicine.

Sections

Osteopathy includes the following sections:

  • The craniosacral part is responsible for restoring micromotion of the brain and spinal cord, surrounding membranes, the seams of bones of the skull and the sacrum.
  • The principle of the structure is the unity of the muscular-articular system. The osteopathic effect is possible only within the physiological barriers of each system element. It considers its local, regional and global interconnections and aims to eliminate the direct damage.
  • The visceral section is responsible for eliminating the violation of internal organs’ mobility, viscerospasms or functional ptosis using specific visceral techniques.


Osteopathy and its basics

Unlike other methods of treatment with hands, osteopathy uses a comprehensive approach to the body. We can figuratively compare the human body with the perfect car, reliable and fragile at the same time.

When all the parts of this car are well-fitted and lubricated, it goes where it should do when the vehicle has fuel. And it is of the correct quantity; all car parts will run smoothly. If at least one component gets damaged, it will manifest somehow. Doctors call such manifestations in the human body disease.

Component

Any disease has both a functional and an organic component. A disorder causes the active element in the function of an organ without disrupting its structure. The organic part, on the contrary, is associated with damage to the organ’s structure. Depending on the ratio of functional and organic disorders, the effectiveness of osteopathic treatment will also change.

Osteopathy is most effective in functional disorders when organic disorders have not yet developed. That is, the organ has not changed. In this case, the earlier you go to an osteopathic doctor, the faster and easier he will be able to eliminate the source of the problems. And get you back to a healthy life. You can fully restore the organ’s function and eliminate the manifestations of the disease at this stage without resorting to other treatment methods.
