A session of osteopathy begins with a clinical interrogation: chronicity of the pain, its indexes of increase or decrease, paroxysmal periods, etc. The therapist must know everything that can link your story to that pain. It is essential to leave nothing to chance when he asks you questions, and leave him reject oneself irrelevant answers.

Thereafter, the therapist examines you: standing up, lying down, active mobility tests, passive tests, resistance tests, etc. This step, called the “touch”, allows the osteopath to appreciate the flexibility of the joints and body tissues to locate the problem. It is also the precision of this gestures that differentiates good osteopaths from bad ones.

 

The “touch” requires anatomical and physiological knowledge and especially very careful techniques. Once the anomaly is identified, the therapist must treat you. There is a whole arsenal of techniques (visceral, cranial, facial, tissue, structural). Some are more effective than others, but all are known to effectively treat all clinical cases.

 

Some of them, called “thrust”, can impress patients.These techniques can result in a joint “pop” or “crack”, which is by no means the conclusion of manipulation. It is essential to understand that the goal is to inform the manipulated structure, in order to regain the flexibility of it.

Following a session, you will usually feel tired. The pain may increase after one session, but is expected to decrease within 48 to 72 hours after treatment. This one is caused by the inflammation that follows the manipulation. The goal of the first session is to unblock the injured joint.

 

As mentioned above, for a chronic pathology, it may take more than one session to remove the signs that prompted you to consult. Appointments should always be spaced a few days apart to allow the body the time to regain balance and thus better feel the goods made of treatment.

 

However, in most cases, especially acute cases (e.g.: signs appeared for a few days, emergencies) such as high back pain, or lumbago, the sessions are quickly very positive. Indeed, the body has not had time to anchor itself in a complete imbalance, and the first session is often a source of satisfaction.
