Ă  quoi sert l’ostĂ©opathie?

Posted by kineblog on January 04, 2007


RelevĂ© sur le site du WOHO (World Osteopathic Health Organization), la très Ă©difiante liste (que je ne vous ferais pas l’affront de vous traduire) des indications de l’ostĂ©opathie:

For what kinds of problems can osteopathic treatment help?

While often identified with the treatment of back pain, osteopathic treatment is useful in a wide variety of health complaints. The application of osteopathic principles in clinical practice varies with the training, interest and license of the individual practitioner. A partial list of complaints in which osteopathic treatment would commonly be applied would include:

* Back pain
* Headache
* Neck pain
* Shoulder pain
* Non anginal chest pain
* Athletic or overuse strain injuries

Depending on individual practitioner expertise, osteopathic manipulative treatment may make a significant contribution to the health care management in the following diagnoses:

* Muscle or ligament strains, ankle, elbow, knee
* Traumatic injuries without laceration or fracture
* Pregnancy and childbirth, gestation, labor and post-partum
* Muscle tension headache independent or associated with migraine
* Sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, Otitis media
* Infant colic, plagiocephaly
* Osteoarthritis
* Pneumonia, bronchitis, congestive heart failure
* Hypertension
* Gastric reflux, non acute cholecystitis
* Anxiety and depression
* Vertigo

Finalement plutôt décevant, on remarque que les projets de décret collent assez bien à cette réalité.
