Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

- Are there any contraindications for osteopathy?
- Contraindications for treatment by an osteopath are conditions that require emergency specialized care (for example: acute infectious diseases, acute mental disorders, acute surgical diseases, acute bleeding).

A relative contraindication for women is menstruation (relative, since with acute complaints - ​ for example, severe pain in the wrist - ​ you can and should come to the session).

- What examinations should be done before an appointment with an osteopath?
- Examinations depend on the specific complaint with which you turn to the osteopath. For example, for pain in the spine - this is an X-ray examination in 2 projections (the area that bothers you). The osteopath will guide you most precisely before making an appointment.

- Do I need to take off my clothes before the session? What will I be comfortable in?
- Most often this question is asked by women. There are two options: the first is to undress to underwear (the bra must be without "pits"); the second - you can change into thin pants and a T-shirt that do not interfere with movement (clothes should be without buttons and zippers).

- Osteopathy, manual therapy (chiropractic), massage: what is the fundamental difference?
- Massage is an effect mainly on the muscle structures of the body. Manual therapy is used primarily for the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. The osteopath, on the other hand, approaches the human body as a whole, determines the leading cause of a health disorder and influences it. Also, an osteopath can treat not only problems of the musculoskeletal system, but also internal organs, the skull and its contents.
