In Saint-Lambert our practice offers care covering many needs in the health sector. Osteopathy is a therapeutic method that works to restore the mobility, vitality, dynamism of all organs, all tissues, and all parts of the body, as a functional unit, an inseparable whole. Osteopaths have developed a high sensitivity of the direction of palpation, which allows them to identify blockages, imbalances, and tensions. They thus obtain an accurate osteopathic assessment, and can then develop a care plan specific to the needs of the consultant, helping him to eliminate health difficulties, pain and discomfort.

Approaches for effective care for the people of Montreal

For the osteopathic treatment of our patients, we use various categories of care, including cranial osteopathy, structural techniques, visceral approach, and the revival of vital energy.

The osteopath uses structural techniques in many circumstances, and especially when an element (bone, muscle chain, joint, fascia ligaments, tendon, etc.) has been “displaced” or disturbed accidentally or traumaticly, sometimes by an unexpected, sudden external force.

A real key opening multiple doors in the human body, well-mastered cranial osteopathy offers ways to achieve great improvements during osteopathic care. This makes sense given the number of glands, nerve nuclei and nerves, endocrine components, and control elements of the entire organism contained in the skull.

An organ or viscera that is too tight will condition the entire musculoskeletal envelope and keep it blocked. The visceral approach is essential in the process of a treatment. If we neglect it, our results in the limbs, muscles or joints will always be shallow and short-lived.

Ancient medicines rightly gave the name “FOUNDATION” to vital energy. Any therapist has been able to touch this reality: Before an imbalance crystallizes in the physical body, it is often already well established in the form of disruption of vital energy. Since this energy is the foundation of the physical body, it is essential to be interested in it, if one is looking for profound and lasting results on the physical plane.

How does an osteopath session work?

At the first session, the osteopath first gathers most of the useful information on the patient’s state of health. It reviews the systems. He questions about traumatic, medical, surgical history, etc. This is the anamnesis. Thus it begins to constitute the health check. This usually continues with postural tests, mobility tests, or reflex tests. Then using a refined sense of palpation the osteopath completes his evaluation by checking certain parts of the body related to the problem expressed by the patient. Following this set of tests and questions he gets an accurate health check, helping to explain the cause of the patient’s symptoms.

At this stage the osteopath knows how to start the treatment, although his care plan will continue to evolve with the new data provided by the osteopathic work. His work will proceed with manual techniques. One of the desired results is the revival of mobility and vitality of muscles and joints, tissues, organs, and viscera. The osteopath will often complete with some recommendations or advice relating to postural habits, lifestyle, sleep hygiene, exercise, complementary care applicable at home. If necessary and depending on the particular case he will talk about support accessories. It is about helping the patient to participate more actively in his recovery. When another treatment session is deemed useful, the patient and the osteopath determine the next date. If the osteopath sees that the participation of another professional would be helpful, he talks about it with the patient.
