CHIROPRACTIC & OSTEOPATHY (ACKERMANN COLLEGE)
Osteopathy is a non-medical manual therapy treatment. It approaches each person/case holistically and with special techniques and manipulations it corrects musculoskeletal problems and imbalances, contributing to the whole body’s good function.
The method’s main focus in to treat dysfunctions of mechanical nature. For this purpose, mobilization manipulations and adjustments are performed on the spine and on the rest of the joints, leading to a deep relaxation of the tired and contracted muscles and release of the fascia.
ll the aforementioned, contribute to balancing our system: soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons) and vital organs (intestines) are released.
In addition, there is an increase in the spine’s range of motion and of the rest of the joints that hinder the good function of the nerves and liquids in our body (blood, lymph).
Consequently, good function and unhindered hematic and neural flow- that is achieved via Osteopathy treatment- leads to confronting inflammations which cause pain in our body.
As for the examination, the history of the patient along with the assessment of the spine and dysfunctional joints, is a necessary guide for the osteopath, concerning the implementation of the appropriate treatment plan.
The method of Chiropractic & Osteopathy of the Swedish college Ackermann (Stockholm), provides personalized interventions after having assessed various factors. For decades now, physiotherapists and doctors have been trained in this method.
What makes this method unique is that, it combines effectively techniques from Chiropractic and Osteopathy, creating a system of manipulations/adjustments. Its main targets are to confront and rehabilitate musculoskeletal dysfunctions, as well as restore the range of motion of the joints.
