Osteopaths recognise that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself and contains is own “medicine chest” to do this.
Osteopaths have an understanding that a “problem” or “disease” does not just appear out-of-the-blue (unless it involves trauma). There has been a chain of events leading up to this issue. The treatments re-establish spinal structure and mechanics, much like a structural engineer would work with physics and forces to repair and stabilise a failing bridge.
By restoring these fundamental issues, the barriers to health via nerves, reflexes, blood flow and organ function – the body can then produce normal spinal and body movements, nerve impulses and normal levels of chemical and hormonal production.
By understanding how the body stands up against gravity and how normal loading should occur through the spine, it is then possible to see that all strain and compensation patterns occur not just at one location, but throughout the entire body.
