Osteopathy

Osteopathic medicine focuses on healthy behavior and lifestyle changes along with conventional treatment including surgery, drugs and medication. Many people always turn to an osteopathic doctor to treat back, neck or joint pain, while this medicine is used for many other conditions such as chest crisis, vertigo, menstrual pain, migraine, sciatica, sinusitis, and problems related to the jaw joints. Osteopathic treatment may be part of the treatment plan for many other cases, such as in pediatrics, otitis media, and injuries that occur to the newborn during childbirth. Osteopathy also helps relieve symptoms of discomfort, such as back pain during pregnancy and digestive problems. Osteopathic medicine is related to the elderly, as it reduces the effects of aging factors related to the spine and joints, and is used as a complementary part of sports medicine for athletes’ injuries.
