For the young and the old
Osteopathy can be applied to address various complaints at all ages. Because very young children and the elderly sometimes have specific complaints, they are listed separately below.
Osteopathy for children
Children require special attention in both medicine and osteopathy. Children are not small adults but are both physically and mentally in full development. Each development phase requires a different approach and has its own characteristics and childhood diseases. A baby is different from a toddler and a toddler is different from an infant or adolescent. If a problem occurs in one of the phases of development, it has implications for the overall development of a child. Each child therefore requires its own unique approach!
Osteopathy in the elderly
During the process of aging, specific problems arise. Change in tissue tension and decrease of vitality may affect various body functions. This can cause musculoskeletal pain and chronic discomfort such as arthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatic complaints and inflammation. Also nerves can for example be limited in their functioning.
Osteopathy, with its soft manual approach is an excellent way to restore the tissue tension and to increase vitality wherever possible. Also cases of difficult recovery after surgery or during a rehabilitation process can be supported by osteopathic treatment.
