at Villa Igiea Spa
Osteopathy is a highly effective holistic approach that treats a wide range of body dysfunctions ranging from musculoskeletal conditions (such as muscular pains, traumas, sport injuries, headaches) to systemic conditions (such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis). The initial consultation includes an understanding of your medical history, a general medical health check if needed, a full musculoskeletal examination and treatment. You will be given a personalised treatment plan in order to maintain the results of the treatment for medium to long term.
A treatment can include: soft tissue techniques to stretch, re-align and reduce inflammation on dysfunctional tissue structures of the body; medical acupuncture to treat pain and create immediate relief for trigger points and other areas of complaint; muscle energy techniques (MET) that stretch, strengthen or break down fibrous adhesions in muscles; high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) joint manipulation which releases restrictions in joints and articulations of the body; strain counterstrain which is a type of positional release that attempts to alleviate muscle spasms and connective tissue tightness by using specific body positioning; and kinesio taping.
