For the treatment of osteopathy, here is our WARNING : Unlike most clinics osteopathy, we do not believe that a general treatment of a fixed duration (e.g. 60 minutes) is the most effective way to solve health problems for which you visit us : osteopathy specific is more accurate and more efficient than the traditional osteopathy, because the treatment is more specific and customized to the exact condition of the patient. Therefore, the treatment of osteopathy specific usually takes 10 to 30 minutes depending on the condition to be treated and the level of pain and/or inflammation. In general, the more the person suffers less intervention will be long term, since we should then quickly relieve the pain without irritating advantage of the structure where the inflammation occurs.

But herniated discs cannot be cured by this method alone: neurovertebral decompression must be combined with osteopathy to achieve good results.

  • What is osteopathy specific ?

    Osteopathy is a manual therapy technique that involves manipulating the body to reduce pain, uncover dysfunctions and restore joint mechanics. Two very distinct osteopathic approaches are specific osteopathy and classical osteopathy. Specific osteopathy is a more modern approach, using evidence-based findings and current technologies, while classical osteopathy returns to the original form, using deeper manipulation of the body and relying on the osteopath's intuition and experience. 

    Osteopathy is different from the osteopathy classical: it is a unique form of manual medicine focusing on the precise treatment of dysfunctions, musculoskeletal treatments scientists based on evidence. This technique aims to reduce the aches and pains, while offering many of the patients mobility. Osteopaths also attach importance to the general state of health, taking into account the mode of life and emotional states before choosing an appropriate treatment plan. It is particularly suited to those who prefer the natural alternatives to medical treatment because osteopathy is not just to bring relief, but also encourages the well-being in the long term.

    Osteopaths are specific practitioners highly qualified who do not use their hands to assess and treat various physical dysfunctions of the body: they also use brain scans (X-rays, MRI, ct or ultrasound) and in the complementary therapy of high technology. His treatments are very specific to the condition of the patient and, therefore, much more efficient and safer. 

    For example, a herniated disc does not examine uvec mobilizations in osteopathic structural classic. Although this technique can provide some relief in the short term, it will have no benefit in the medium or long term. However, many clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of the treatment of decompression neurovertébrale for the treatment of herniated discs. See some of the scientific articles published on the decompression neurovertébrale here

  • How long does a specific osteopathy session last?

    Unlike most osteopathic clinics, we don't believe that a general treatment of a fixed duration (e.g. 60 minutes) is the most effective way of resolving the health problems for which you consult us: specific osteopathy is more precise and effective than traditional osteopathy because the treatment is more specific and personalized to the patient's exact condition. As a result, specific osteopathic treatment generally takes between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the condition to be treated and the level of pain and/or inflammation. Generally speaking, the more pain the patient is in, the shorter the procedure will be, since we need to relieve the pain quickly without further irritating the structure where the inflammation is occurring.

On the other hand, if you're looking for a treatment that's specific, personalized to your condition, and effective, you've found the clinic that can help.
