The osteopath is a professionist who knows how to make clinical decisions based on principles and concepts of osteopathy and who is able to identify and execute proper osteopathic techniques suitable to the problem and the patient. This is all possible through the identification of the causes and of the possible pathologies of structural and physiological changes in the patient.
The osteopath, therefore, does not treat the disease as a pathological event, but as an imbalance of physical functions. A key figure in treating pain in the spine, headaches, rheumatism and arthritis, as well as discursive repeated injuries and joint injuries such as in tennis elbow, trauma from car accidents (whiplash), as well as mild depression or anxiety.
The osteopath, with his hands, is capable of perceiving the small variations that occur in the tissues, thus gathering important data on the local body temperature (index of inflammation), and on their consistency.
The painful parts of the patient will not necessarily be touched, but instead the osteopath will work on the ones that are causing the pain: so a headache can in fact be treated by either twisting the head of the patient, working on breathing techniques or also treating the sacrum bone.
