For the success of an osteopathic treatment, it is necessary to have a wide theoretical knowledge, skilled hands and insight into the functioning of the human as an individual. It is fascinating to experience, both as an osteopath and as a patient, how much a skilled hand can notice and observe.

More and more colleagues in the medical field understand that the osteopath has a very wide and functional knowledge of anatomy, (neuro) physiology, pathology, embryology etc. Lately it is more and more common that doctors, therapists and specialists work together with the osteopath. The osteopath undertakes a thorough education and is able to do a complete and functional examination. It is because of this that they are able to see more relating issues that have a possible connection with the problems or complaints. This is one of the reasons that osteopathy is more than often used in (professional) sports.

When Osteopathy?

A visit to the osteopath can be really helpful for a wide variety of complaints. The focus of the treatment is not on your complaint but on the self-regulating ability of your body.
