Osteopathy: adults and seniors
The pain is not inevitable!
Manual therapy can relieve long-standing pain. The osteopath can take care of the following pathologies:
- The pains of nervous origin (sciatica, cruralgies, NCB, tingling in the arms),
- Back pain (back pain, back pain, neck pain),
- Joint pain related to osteoarthritis,

Posture at the office / Using the smartphone :
During the last decades, the human body has had to adapt to a loss of mobility in everyday life, at work, for a more static posture: sitting at the desk.
Back pain arising from prolonged sitting, are nowadays better understood and therefore better treated.
We can improve the chair, the use of a walking foot, the height of the computer screen. As well as orienting yourself towards a muscular and / or stretching program adapted to your tensions.
But here we are confronted with new challenges: Whether in private or business, the time we spend in front of the screens of our smartphones and tablets continues to grow.
The posture is most often involuntary: head down to the screen, chin facing your chest and the neck in flexion.
The more the head is thrown forward, the less the spine carries the weight of the head and the more the muscles, especially the trapezius who must bear the heavy load.
As a result: cervicalgia, back pain, headaches, migraines, torticollis repetition etc.
Accompanied by your osteopath, you can permanently improve your posture, and reduce the recurrence of pain.
Vertebral compression, joint pain, degeneration of cartilage, stiffness or chronic tension of the knees, elbows or hips, are evils that do not spare the generation of seniors.
After 50 years, osteoarthritis of the knee is the most common type of osteoarthritis. Over the years the cartilages wear out and become thinner.
This erosion causes motor difficulties during walking: the knee shifts, its movements are more or less painful. Before considering surgery and to consume less anti-inflammatory and analgesic, osteopathic treatment combines efficacy and safety.
Without ever forcing the normal play of the joints, and after ensuring that the disorders are within his competence, your osteopath carries out a thorough palpation examination of the skeleton, viscera and muscles. Its soft and precise touch detects possible tensions and restores lost mobility.
