How does an osteopathy session work?

An osteopathy session generally starts with an in depth discussion with the osteopath. The osteopath will take the time to ask you questions about your medical history, your lifestyle, your dietary habits, and other factors that could have an impact on your general health.

After, the osteopath will proceed with a full assessment with the objective of assessing the person's posture, the body's mobility and musculoskeletal tensions. The combination of precise palpation skills and a global vision of the human anatomy allows the osteopath to determine the source of the discomfort, that can sometimes be elsewhere in the body and not necessarily directly where the functional problem is located.

From these observations, the osteopath will elaborate a personalized treatment approach that can include gentle mobilizations and stretches that aim to relieve discomfort, reduce inflammation and improve articular and soft tissu mobility. These gentle techniques can vary according to the person's needs and state of health.

During the treatment, you may feel a light pressure or slight sensation of tension during the mobilizations, but this should not be painful. The osteopath can also give you advice on exercises to do at home and other ways to maintain your general health and mobility.

Osteopathic care is made to be a relaxing and non invasive experience that aims to restore your body's natural equilibrium and improve your general well-being.

When should I consult an osteopath?

In general, it is advised to consult an osteopath as soon as you feel discomfort, a persistent tension that is affecting your quality of life or if you are in need of rehabilitative care.

The sooner you seek care, the less likely it is that your health condition will deteriorate and you will become more resistant to discomfort in the futur.

Osteopathy can be complementary to other forms of treatment, such as physiotherapy, acupuncture or consulting your physician.
