Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a holistic healing practice based on the findings of the American doctor Andrew Taylor Still, which relies solely on the hands for diagnosis and therapy.
 
Osteopathie in Wien
The doctors and therapists that practice osteopathy at the Centre of Integrative Medicine all have a qualification in osteopathy from the “Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine” (PCOM) and the “International Acadamy of Osteopathy” (IAO).

The aim of osteopathic treatment is to correct the restrictions in mobility of structures and tissue in order to restore physical and mental well-being. Osteopathy is a therapy particularly suited for people suffering from pain diseases. Changes in structures and tissues not revealed by apparative diagnostics can be detected with the findings of the “hands-on” medical examination and then treated. 

Where can osteopathy help?

  • headaches: tension headaches, migraine,..
  • tension of the neck
  • cervical vertebrae syndrome e.g. after whiplash
  • dizziness
  • restriction in the mobility of the spinal column
  • pain after injury or surgery
  • shoulder-arm syndrome
  • pain in the joints

What happens exactly during osteopathic treatment?

An osteopathic examination starts with an extensive diagnostic consultation. This is followed by the physician examining the posture, muscles and mobility of the patient while he/she is standing up, sitting and lying down.

Normally treatment itself is completely painless.

It consists of the osteopath using different manual techniques to find restrictions in movement, to relieve pain and to activate the power of self-healing.

Very often different forms of therapy are used, a combination of osteopathy and acupuncture for example, in order to optimise the results of the treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

An osteopathic session itself takes about 45 minutes, while the first consultation takes around 1 hour. The body then needs to regenerate. The number of sessions varies depending on the problem (acute or chronic).
