Structural osteopathy is the specialty of osteopathy that tries to restore the body’s balance, after a functional, structural or biomechanical alteration of the musculoskeletal system. This injury can be caused by bad positions, falls, stress, intense efforts ………….
The objective of this manual technique is to correct the imbalance that the body is afflicted with to recover the elasticity of the tissues, relieve pain and restore the patient’s general health.
Structural osteopathy can alleviate the effects caused by muscle stress. A tense muscle uses a lot of energy and reduces its elasticity, something that makes it more likely to be damaged. The relief of this stiffness, in addition to ending the pain, stimulates the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids, thus facilitating the transport of nutrients and oxygen and the elimination of waste.
The Osteopathic treatment of the diaphragm and the ribs helps to improve respiratory system conditions, alleviating the effects of lung diseases such as asthma or chronic bronchitis.
