When can osteopathy provide support for you and your children?

Osteopathy can be implemented in many areas as a supplementary or supportive measure.

The treatment of acute and chronic issues and diseases can be supported and assisted.
Stress management, headaches, sleep disorders, fatigue and susceptibility to infections are just some of the areas where osteopathy can make a positive difference.

Please contact me if you have any questions, so that we can discuss how I might be of service.

When can osteopathy help?

Osteopaths can support, promote and return a sense of balance to you. I’d like to use the example of jaw problems to explain a little about how osteopathy attempts to rediscover health in your system.

Osteopathy and the jaw – Jaw (temporomandibular) and craniomandibular dysfunctions

There are multiple connections between the teeth, jaws, neck muscles, spine, pelvis and organs as well as the emotions and stress. Taking these into account during a treatment is the key to a successful osteopathic treatment.

Direct collaboration between osteopaths and dentists may be the key to the effective treatment of pain in the chewing muscles and jaw, for example. If these two disciplines can work hand-in-hand and osteopathy and dentistry can be linked up, a successful healing process can often be achieved.

In practice, this means that the osteopath and dentist can look for the reasons for the dysfunction in the stomatognathic system together. The dentist can look for mouth infections, malocclusions of the teeth, ill-fitting dentures, pathological processes in the mandibular joint, etc. The osteopath can examine the entire body including the mandibular joint for misalignments and dysfunctions that may be connected to the pain in the jaw area.

The combination of both forms of treatment can often enable a more efficient, quicker and longer-lasting recovery. In splint therapy, for example, a preceding osteopathic treatment to relax the muscles and regulate the surrounding structures can lead to better results in the “bite taking” (the perfect position of the lower and upper jaw in relation to each other) during the treatment. During the orthodontic treatment using braces, an accompanying osteopathic treatment can alleviate possible tension in the craniomandibular system and speed up the treatment.

There are manifold connections between the teeth and the rest of the body.

When, for example, teeth are well aligned on one side but don’t fit together well on the other, the body will constantly try to make the teeth bite together perfectly. This can lead to undue stress on the mandibular joints and thus to pain in the chewing muscles and jaw.

The head is involuntarily held in a different position because of this, the spine is exposed to a different kind of stress, and the thoracic spine and lower back have to compensate for this difference.

Other consequences can be pelvic misalignment and a blocked sacroiliac joint (between the pelvis and the sacrum), hip problems, and foot and knee pain. And vice versa, a foot injury, as well as disorders of the knees, hips, spine and organs can lead to painful undue stress on the jaw, changes in the alignment of teeth and chewing muscle tension as well as headaches and migraines.

There are also connections between shoulder elevation and a shift of the lower jaw to one side.

Functional leg length discrepancies and pelvic misalignments can be connected to jaw asymmetries. If there is scoliosis (lateral curve) of the spine, it can lead to a shift of the lower jaw. The teeth might adapt to the changes by creating a cross bite.

Teeth grinding and clenching

When the head posture is influenced by the body posture, the lower jaw automatically moves in the same direction. That means that if the head is tilted back, the lower jaw moves to the back.

If this is a permanent condition due to bad posture, it can lead to undue stress on the mandibular joint, the teeth suddenly no longer fit together ideally and the tongue muscles tense up. Additionally, the chewing muscles may start to work harder, as they are trying to restore the original position, which can in turn lead to headaches and pain in the neck.

Because the chewing muscles are working harder and the dental occlusion is trying to be restored, it may happen that the patient starts grinding or clenching their teeth.

Of course, many other factors can lead to teeth clenching or grinding.

What can I expect from the therapy?

Please bring the completed patient information form for yourself and/or your child, which I will send to you, with you for your first appointment. This enables me to have some immediate insight and provides me with a lot of information. During the treatment, through conversation and examinations, I will gain more insight into your pain or the problem at hand.

You can also bring all the documents, x-ray images or findings from other treatments and therapies with you for me to review and gain more information on you and your body.

The examination of your body is followed by the treatment immediately. At the end of the therapy, we will discuss how you yourself can contribute to improving your concerns and what you can do at home.

Using all the information I get from you and your body, I can draw up a treatment plan that’s tailored to your needs.

Newborns, infants, children

The treatment of infants, children and adults runs along similar lines.

Newborns, babies and infants are very different to adults though. Events before, during and immediately after birth, the huge dynamics at play in the development of the different tissues and organs, the physiological processes as well as the sensorimotor and emotional development in the first years of life call for special diagnostic and therapeutic practices, as well as for the attention and instruction of the osteopath.

THE ESSENCE OF OSTEOPATHY IS TOUCH

information and fees for Osteopathy

The first visit to my osteopathic clinic is also the most time-consuming. To get a good picture of the condition of a small human being (as with adults), it is not only important to look at current symptoms and issues. Important information can be gleaned from the past, such as any events during the pregnancy, birth and in the first years of life. Studies have clearly shown this. Knowledge of this kind helps me as an osteopath recognize connections that are causing problems now.

Osteopathy is holistic. That means I don’t only recognize a person, whether a newborn baby or a senior, in the bodily context. Osteopathy also works on the mental, emotional and substantial level. Light is shed on the past, and the personal resources of every client, their position in the family, their environment and much more all influence the treatment and planning of each individualized therapy.

Through manual touch, I gain information about how the tissues are being provided with nutrients, the healthy function of the nerves, suitable detoxification or the drainage of the lymphatic system and the veins. Gentle flexibility tests are carried out on the joints and fasciae.

Every tissue, every bone, every organ and all the muscles should, ideally, demonstrate flexibility, elasticity and proper motion. Osteopathy works with different rhythms, not just the heartbeat and breathing. Osteopaths use these fine movements to examine and assess. Limited mobility is treated and health is stimulated.

All information from the patient’s medical history, the check-up, the examination and the specific osteopathic procedures pave the way for the subsequent treatment. Any stresses within the family, as well as possible indications for nutritional advice or detoxification therapies are essential here.

The latest scientific findings from the field of modern neurology are always very important to me.

For example, we know that the thoughts and behavior demonstrated by people in our environment are reflected by us. So-called mirror neurons see to that. Applied to the family, results of studies into mirror neurons explain a generally known fact: children can only be as happy as their parents. If the parents are stressed, the children will feel nervous. This already starts in pregnancy and is already expressed in childhood. A family is always a unit, and that’s how it is treated in osteopathy.

If imbalances, limitations and other issues are recognized in the body, we try to understand whether these were caused by accidents, scars or disease. A lack of nutrients and emotional factors can also contribute to causing imbalance in the body.

In the next step, individual structures that exhibit limited mobility or limited bodily rhythms are examined. The treatment can then for example take place passively, in that tissues are brought into a relaxing position, so that better circulation can take place. Or they may call for active techniques, such as gentle mobilization techniques.

It is also important for an osteopath that the root cause of the disorders may be far away from the regions that are displaying symptoms. So for example a scar on the appendix can cause tension in the cervical spine through fasciae, which then causes headaches. One could relieve local limited mobility in the cranial bone or neck region, but in the long term it may make more sense to treat the scar too, which, in this case, is the root cause of the symptoms in the head. An osteopath’s hands follow the tissue. Osteopaths dedicate many years to developing this sensitivity.

What is essential to a competent therapy is having good knowledge of the individual steps in a child’s biological, neurological and psychological development.

Breastfeeding problems, sleep disorders, torticollis, digestive disorders, swallowing disorders, articulation problems, concentration and learning difficulties, allergies, recurring ear infections and many more things can be treated.

It is also fundamental to recognize the limits of one’s own osteopathic treatment and to be part of a good network of other therapists, pediatricians, orthopedic doctors and speech therapists.
