How to treat an Osteopath?
We treat the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms

Unlike many other therapies, osteopathy focuses on eliminating the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms, which are often two different things. Here you can read more about Osteopathy at Krop360, what we can treat and how we treat you.

At Krop360 you will find that where the treatment is focused and where the symptoms are, it is not always the same place.

Where does the word “Osteopathy” come from?

The word osteopathy comes from the Greek osteon, which means “bone” or “bone”. It is a health discipline based on the traditional health sciences, such as anatomy, physiology, neurology and biomechanics. 

What does an Osteopath treat?

Osteopaths treat the skeleton and joints, which they manipulate and mobilize. They work with muscles and tendons where the symptoms often show up. Osteopaths work a lot with the nervous system, especially the spine and skull that are in focus. And then, they work with connective tissue around the organs. The latter is unique to osteopaths.

An example might be the connective tissue that surrounds the intestines. This connective tissue keeps them in place and at the same time contains all the nerves and blood vessels to the intestines. If this connective tissue is tight, it will affect the optimal function and possibly give symptoms in the form of, e.g. stomach pain, constipation or bloating, etc.

The reason for this may be after an operation or a stomach infection, or a trauma. These problems can be dormant for many years before they cause symptoms.

The body can not be split into individual parts

Many therapists will focus their efforts solely on the place where you experience your symptoms. If you have leg pain, they will only look at your leg. If you have pain in the neck, they will only look at the neck, but the body can not be split into individual parts.

All parts affect each other, and often the cause of the problem will be found somewhere other than where the symptom is experienced. If your pelvis is crooked, it can cause pain in the knees or headaches, for example. Osteopathy sees the body as a unit and an interplay of parts that together make up an entire human being.
