Osteopathy at Dubai Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a holistic drug-free manual therapy that focuses on the muscles, joints and bones. It also aims to positively affect the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. This improves the body’s ability to self-heal by enhancing the flow of arteries, veins, cerebrospinal fluid and nerves.

Our osteopaths have been trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems, thereby assisting the body in its natural healing process. They use hands-on manual techniques including neuromuscular, fascial, craniosacral, visceral and indirect osteopathic manipulation.

In general, osteopathy is very safe. However, osteopathic treatment and spinal manipulation (specifically) are not recommended in some cases, such as fractures, acute inflammatory conditions, certain blood clotting disorders and where there is a risk of injury to the spine, joints or nerves. Your osteopath will discuss these risks with you at your first consultation.

Depending on the condition, osteopathic treatments can help with a wide range of problems. These include back pain, sciatica, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, digestive problems and asthma. Osteopathy can also alleviate pregnancy-related discomfort and treat babies with colic. Osteopathy for colic is a gentle treatment that helps the baby to relax and can even make it easier to suckle. It also releases tension in the rib cage and diaphragm, and this can help the baby to let out the trapped wind. It can also reduce torticollis by releasing the tightness in the neck. The therapists at dubai osteopathy also provide treatment for vertigo, and the vestibular rehabilitation is an effective way to reduce the symptoms associated with it.
