Types of techniques
Osteopathy encompasses the interaction of structural organization dynamics and metabolic activities that give rise to form and function. Recognize the inherent wisdom and intelligence within each cell. It seeks to recover what was lost; find the innate self-correcting principles that guide, sustain, and restore us. We are contacted by what is all powerful. Osteopathy is the study and practical application of anatomy and physiology.
THE MAIN OSTEOPATHIC TECHNIQUES MOST USED CURRENTLY ARE:
Aimed at restoring the musculoskeletal apparatus and posture, with special attention to the spine and treating trauma.
THE "TRUST" OR "CRUNCHING BONES"
This is one of the best known techniques in the world of osteopathy by patients. It is a technique that involves little movement (low amplitude) and high speed, in order to reposition each of the altered joints. This technique requires a lot of experience on the part of the therapist, otherwise it can cause harmful injuries to the patient.
Aimed at cranial, sacral and central nervous system problems.
Focused on the treatment of organs and viscera. Function is improved by manipulation to achieve better blood flow.
TRIGGER POINTS OR TRIGGER POINTS
In this case it is the pain points that radiate pain. The Jones technique consists of positioning an affected muscle in a comfortable position and while applying pressure to the trigger point, to reduce pain at this point.
The fascia is a very fine tissue that surrounds the muscles. If this tissue limits the mobility of the surrounding muscle fibers, there is some discomfort, even pain. The main objective of this technique is to avoid adhesions on the muscle, thus improving the muscle / fascia ratio.
MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUE
The main objective of this technique is to relax retired or shortened muscles. The patient performs a sustained muscle contraction while the therapist performs a muscle stretch.
In this technique, a transverse friction is carried out on the injured tissue, thus eliminating waste substances and, improving the irrigation of the tissues thanks to the inflammation caused by friction.
TMJ TREATMENT OF THE TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT
The main objective of this technique is to relax the masseter muscle, since the high tension in this muscle can generate other associated problems such as bruxism.
GLOBAL POSTURAL RE-EDUCATION RPG
A technique used to improve alterations and pathologies of the spine. Its main objective is to relieve pain by balancing the muscle chains that comprise the musculoskeletal system. In this case the key tool is global active stretching.
Puts your focus on tuning in to the latent trend. It does not focus on eradicating the symptoms of the disease but on the cause, that is, on restoring and enhancing health, innate in the body of each being.
Osteopathy has been in the world of science for many years, and techniques continue to evolve.
