Our therapeutic approach

 

   It is based on the initial osteopathic or posturologic diagnosis, which is essential to avoid common therapeutic failures, especially when it relates to chronic or recurrent pains generated by an undetected postural disorder (about 80% of cases)

  The time dedicated to the anamnesis is specially important, in order to direct the treatment, which is always comprehensive and etiologic. That means our approach does not consist in treating only the symptom, but also correcting the initial dysfunctions the pains have originated from. Those one may be from postural, traumatic, or nutritional origins, among others.

 

We are using several therapies to recover the altered functions. The most used are:

  • The postural adjustments (see the page dedicated to posturology)
  • Orthopraxy (manual therapy at the standing subject) http://orthopractie.free.fr/
  • Auriculotherapy (see the page dedicated to this that therapy)
  • Sensory-motor rehabilitation and vestibular rehabilitation
  • Nutritional tips

   Each treatment is therefore individual and specific of the altered function, and requires usually few sessions.
