Manual Therapy and Osteopathy
What is Manual Therapy?
Manual therapy – osteopathy, is a therapy method where the doctor performs therapy with his own hands. Manual therapy often let’s you to avoid expensive operations. In addition, this method of treatment is always accompanied by pleasant sensations and psychological comfort – the emotional environment is very nice.
What are the basic principles of manual therapy ? What is it about?
The main conception of the manual therapy lies in the perception of the physical integrity of the human body. This means that the body is not a collection of individual parts, but a complex creation and works in harmony, and is perfect only as whole system.
According to this concept the disease causes structural changes in different organs or systems of the body, which in turn leads to a functional (activity) problems. But there is an inverse relationship – functional (activity) problems lead to structural problems of organs or changes in various body systems. This creates a sort of “vicious circle”.
Manual therapies and osteopathy’s task is to stop this pathological cycle and restore normal structural – functional relationship.
