When to consult an osteopath?

The osteopath can intervene as soon as there is pain, moderate or very intense, sudden or chronic.

He/She can also intervene in a preventive manner. Past physical or emotional trauma can manifest themselves silently without any noticeable symptoms. This is why we advise our patients to consult once to twice per year for a general check-up, to ensure their overall health.


Why consult an osteopath?

Osteopathy has a vast field of action. As soon as a mobility restriction leads to an alteration of the function of a system, the osteopath is able to act.
Even though spinal disorders are the main reason for consultation, osteopathy also applies to:

      Sprains, tendonitis, cervicalgia (neck pains), torticollis (stiff neck), dorsalgia, intercostal pains, lumbago, neuralgia, pains in the pelvic area, muscular trauma, whiplash issues, headache of mechanical origin…
