A single approach for complete well-being

The osteopath, through osteopathic assessment (which includes observation, perceptive palpation and osteopathic tests), identifies the presence of somatic dysfunctions. Somatic dysfunction is a compromised or altered function of one or more structures of the body and manifests itself with loss of mobility, change in tissue quality and alteration of neurological and vascular function.

Based on this assessment, the osteopath recognizes the indication or contraindication for treatment and plans a personalized program, with the aim of restoring correct joint and tissue mobility, fluid circulation and respiratory dynamics, thus improving the health and general well-being of the person
