At the +SALUD physiotherapy center, we consider osteopathy one of the most fundamental techniques in our therapeutic arsenal. It is crucial for us that our patients understand the value and uniqueness of this discipline, created in the United States by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in 1874.

Osteopathy at +SALUD Altea

OSTEOPATHY is based on a deep understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, applying a holistic approach to treat not only musculoskeletal problems but also biomechanical disturbances globally. Our treatment focuses on restoring the body’s balance using manual techniques that can target musculoskeletal, visceral, nervous, fascial, ligamentous tissues, among others.

It is important to highlight the difference between osteopathy and chiropractic, two disciplines that are often confused but are completely different in practice and philosophy. Additionally, it should be noted that osteopathy is neither a para-medical profession nor an alternative medicine but an integral therapy recognized for its effectiveness.

Specific Uses of Osteopathy

In addition to treating common issues such as musculoskeletal and postural pain, our osteopathic practice has proven effective in managing less obvious conditions that manifest with symptoms in other areas of the body:

  • Headaches that may be caused by jaw problems.
  • Pelvic or lower back pain that may originate from old scars, such as those from a cesarean section.
  • Back pain that may result from gastrointestinal problems.
  • Rotator cuff tendinitis possibly caused by a clavicle blockage.

Our physiotherapists conduct a rigorous study of each ailment, establishing an accurate diagnosis and applying appropriate techniques to restore the body’s functionality comprehensively. At +SALUD Altea, we understand that every symptom is a warning signal from our body, indicating areas of imbalance that require attention, not necessarily in the place of pain but perhaps in a completely different area.
