Aaram Physiotherapy Clinic is also the first clinics in Punjab to introduce Osteopathy Practice in Punjab. Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. Its aim is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
This therapy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care. Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body, to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
Cranial osteopathy is a part of osteopathy, it is the name given to a subtle and refined approach to osteopathy that follows all the principles of osteopathy, and it is used throughout the body not just in the head. The name cranial osteopathy simply refers to the fact that it includes the structures inside the head.
Cranial osteopaths use a highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and tissue quality in the living anatomy of the whole body, and to diagnose areas of strain or dysfunction.
The osteopath is often drawn to areas in the body that have been affected by past events, such as old accidents and injuries. The body may have learned to compensate for a traumatic event or injury and the patient may be unaware that there is anything wrong, but the effects may still be present and relevant to current symptoms.
Diagnosis and treatment are intimately linked as the osteopath works to activate the innate ability of the body to heal itself, and by offering gentle and specific support where it is needed to bring the tissues into a state of balance and release, to restore it to health.
Using this approach, the osteopath learns to listen to and be guided by the body’s inner knowledge of what is wrong, which may be different to the patient’s opinion and the osteopath’s opinion. This helps the osteopath to understand and treat the cause of the symptoms, to reduce the chance of symptoms returning in the future.
Cranial osteopathy is a gentle, safe and effective approach to treatment of a wide range of problems in the whole body. We have achieved wonderful resuts with cranial Osteopathy in patients with Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Stress, Migraine, Facial Palsy and Bells Palsy and many more such conditions.
Visceral Osteopathy is the treatment of internal organs: digestive tract, respiratory system and reproductive system and is one part of an over-all osteopathic philosophy, but focused on treating ‘visceral’ or organ problems that may cause pain or problems of the spine or joints in other parts of the body. It may also be used as part of treating local visceral problems such as slow bowels.
