Health conditions treated in osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine where the osteopath effectively treats many health conditions: back pain, muscular tension, pain due to osteoarthritis, not to mention certain disorders of pregnant women and infants. Here is a non-exhaustive list of conditions for which our osteopaths are very successful:

  • Back pain (back pain, lumbago)
  • Neck pain (cervicalgia)
  • Torticollis
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Lumbar sprain
  • Whiplash
  • Back sprain
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder pain
  • Pain in the arm
  • Elbow pain
  • Wrist pain
  • Chest pain
  • Leg pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Foot pain


Osteopathy does not solve everything

Other conditions such as herniated discs, bulging discs or discopathy (disc compression) respond better to our spinal decompression therapy than to conventional osteopathic treatment. Bursitis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, sprains, carpal tunnel and other inflammatory conditions respond better to laser. Finally, conditions where calcification is involved, such as calcifying bursitis or heel spur, respond better to Shockwave therapy treatments.


When to Consult Another Specialist

It is crucial to understand that osteopathy, while effective for a variety of conditions, is not a one-size-fits-all solution for all health ailments. For example, conditions like disc herniation or inflammatory diseases may require a more specialized medical approach or surgical interventions. In such cases, our osteopaths at Clinique TAGMED are trained to recognize the limitations of their field and will refer you to other medical specialists for more targeted diagnosis and treatment.


Interdisciplinary collaboration is at the heart of our philosophy of care at the TAGMED Clinic. If your condition requires expertise that osteopathy cannot provide, we have a network of medical specialists with whom we work closely. Whether for radiological examinations, rheumatology consultations, or surgical procedures, our goal is to ensure that you receive the most appropriate treatment for your specific condition.


Osteopathy, a gentle and effective treatment

Osteopathy is a gentle and effective treatment for everyone that taps into the body's ability to heal itself. Osteopaths act directly on this self-healing capacity through manual treatment.


Osteopathy, a unique therapy

Based on the work of pioneer AT Still, osteopathy is a therapy that relies on manual contact for diagnosis and treatment. Osteopathy removes tension and restrictions in the body to promote structural and physiological harmony. It respects the relationship between body and mind. Although in the family of manual medicines, osteopathy differs from other therapies such as massage, chiropractic or physiotherapy, especially in its philosophy and in its treatment techniques. The most competent osteopaths


The TAGMED Clinic is committed to rigorous professional standards and membership criteria that ensure public safety by providing osteopaths with the highest level of training in manual osteopathy. The TAGMED Clinic maintains an open and inclusive dialogue with osteopaths, educators, associations and the government to ensure that it hires the best osteopaths available. The TAGMED Clinic continues to work to develop awareness of osteopathy and the osteopathic community.What is osteopathy?


Osteopathy is a profession that makes extensive use of manual diagnosis and treatment guided by the principles set forth by its founder, Andrew Taylor Still. Osteopathy emphasizes the relationship between the structure and function of the body. Osteopaths are functional anatomists who use manual therapy. Osteopaths focus on health care, rather than focusing on disease. In summary, osteopathic treatment aims to restore proper body mechanics, nerve impulses and circulation of body fluids.


What is osteopathic manual therapy?

The osteopaths at TAGMED Clinic are osteopaths who practice manual therapies. Osteopaths adhere to the theory that imbalances in human structure contribute to or are directly related to the development and/or maintenance of disease. Anatomy and physiology are the basis of osteopathic treatment. Osteopaths recognize that the human body has the ability to regulate and heal itself, if we strive to provide it with what it needs to maintain its health. Our role is to encourage this self-healing capacity through manual treatment by acting on the structure and physiology of the human body. We let nature do its work, that is to say, to eliminate all obstacles that could hinder the proper functioning of the cells that make up the body's tissues. Understanding and adjusting the anatomical unity of the human structure is our job.


What is an osteopath?

Osteopaths are educated and trained to work exclusively without the use of drugs or surgery, using manual methods for diagnosis and treatment. This is the main method of teaching in the world outside of the United States and is what is currently practiced in Canada. In this context, an osteopath is different from a doctor of osteopathy.


What is a doctor of osteopathy?

Osteopathic doctors are trained in osteopathic medical universities and are licensed and qualified to practice medicine in the United States, just like your family doctor. It is the only country in the world to offer a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree, recognized by all American and Canadian states. Most Doctors of Osteopathy work in hospital settings in much the same way as a family doctor does, and they are also found in almost every medical specialty. In addition, Doctors of Osteopathy may be eligible for medical licensure in many countries outside of the United States, as is the case in Canada.


Nous sommes des experts en ostéopathie spécifique

L’ostéopathie spécifique est une approche précise et personnalisée qui se base sur un diagnostic détaillé et des imageries médicales pour proposer un traitement efficace. Elle nécessite un haut niveau de compétence de la part du praticien pour cibler de manière plus spécifique les problèmes de santé du patient et ainsi offrir des résultats plus rapides et plus efficaces. Cette méthode vise à traiter les déséquilibres structurels et fonctionnels du corps en utilisant une gamme de techniques manuelles adaptées à chaque cas. L’approche spécifique permet non seulement de soulager les symptômes douloureux, mais aussi de s’attaquer aux causes profondes des troubles, favorisant ainsi une guérison plus complète et durable.


En intégrant les dernières avancées en matière d’imagerie médicale, l’ostéopathie spécifique offre une compréhension approfondie de l’anatomie et de la physiologie du patient, ce qui permet d’affiner le diagnostic et d’ajuster le traitement de manière plus précise. Cette précision dans l’approche thérapeutique permet d’optimiser la réponse du corps au traitement, réduisant le temps nécessaire pour observer des améliorations significatives.


L’ostéopathie spécifique est particulièrement efficace pour une large gamme de conditions, y compris les problèmes de dos chroniques, les hernies discales, les sciatiques, les troubles de la posture, ainsi que les douleurs articulaires et musculaires. Par ailleurs, elle est bénéfique pour améliorer les fonctions corporelles, contribuant ainsi à une amélioration générale de la santé et du bien-être.


Un traitement en ostéopathie spécifique commence par une évaluation complète du patient, incluant une anamnèse détaillée, un examen physique et, si nécessaire, des analyses d’imagerie. Cette évaluation globale permet à l’ostéopathe de développer un plan de traitement personnalisé, ciblant spécifiquement les besoins uniques de chaque patient. Les séances de traitement peuvent inclure une variété de techniques, telles que des manipulations douces, des techniques de mobilisation, et des méthodes de relâchement myofascial, toutes visant à restaurer l’équilibre et la fonction optimale du corps.


En somme, l’ostéopathie spécifique représente une évolution dans la pratique ostéopathique, offrant une approche plus ciblée et scientifiquement fondée pour le traitement des troubles musculosquelettiques et autres. Elle souligne l’importance d’une compréhension approfondie de la mécanique corporelle et de la pathologie sous-jacente pour atteindre une guérison efficace et durable, soulignant ainsi le rôle crucial de l’ostéopathe en tant que partenaire de santé dédié au bien-être global de ses patients.


The synergy of osteopathy and spinal decompression therapy

Introduction to therapeutic synergy

Osteopathy and spinal decompression therapy are two therapeutic approaches that, although different in their application, can be complementary in the treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions. Osteopathy focuses on harmonizing body structure and facilitating self-healing, while spinal decompression therapy aims to relieve pressure on spinal discs and nerves. When used in conjunction, these two methods can provide synergy that maximizes therapeutic results, particularly for conditions like herniated discs, chronic back pain, and postural disorders.


Benefits of combining the two therapies

The combination of osteopathy and spinal decompression therapy allows for a more holistic approach to treatment. For example, spinal decompression therapy can effectively relieve pressure on a herniated disc, while osteopathy can help rebalance surrounding structures to prevent recurrence. This synergy not only allows for faster relief of symptoms, but also better prevention of recurrence by addressing the underlying causes of the condition being treated. Thus, the patient benefits from a more complete and lasting treatment plan.
