Osteopathy and illness

Patients who suffer from advanced diabetes, cancer, or obstructive lung dysfunction may still enjoy relief of their musculoskeletal pains with the help of osteopathy.

There exist numerous osteopathic techniques some of which, like fascial normalization and cranial stimulation, are very mild, while others are more aggressive. It is up to the osteopath to choose those that will better address the patient’s needs.

Any patient who consults an osteopath should be assured that if, after examining him or her, the osteopath concludes that osteopathy is not likely to help, he will recommend the patient consult a doctor.
