WHAT DOES OSTEOPATH MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a type of complementary and alternative medicine. Its practitioners claim that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together. Osteopaths receive special training in the musculoskeletal system. They believe that their treatments, which primarily consist of moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints, help allow the body to heal itself. As with all forms of complementary and alternative medicine, the practice of osteopathy does not always adhere to evidence-based medicine. There are few high-quality research studies demonstrating that osteopathy is effective in treating any medical condition other than lower back pain. In the UK, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends osteopathy for the treatment of persistent lower back pain. However, analysis of peer-reviewed research yields little evidence that osteopathy is effective for non-musculoskeletal conditions, and limited evidence that osteopathy is an effective treatment for some types of neck pain, shoulder pain, or limb pain.
