Clinique Cohérence - Ostéopathie et santé familiale

Osteopathy is a manual approach based on the physiology, biomechanics and anatomy of the human body.

The osteopath aims to restore BALANCE in the body to promote a return to a state of OPTIMAL HEALTH.

By restoring the mobility of all the structures of the body (bones, muscles, arteries, nerves, organs, viscera, glands, brain, etc.), it is possible to find a better state of homeostasis as well as a natural ability to self-regulation.

The osteopath does not treat diseases but people. It considers the person as a whole and seeks to identify the cause(s) of the patient’s symptoms. When the patient’s condition requires it, the osteopath will not hesitate to refer to a doctor or any other healthcare professional.

The origin

Osteopathic principles and techniques were developed in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, an American surgeon from Kirksville. Subsequently, osteopathy developed in Europe. Then in the early 80s a French osteopath, Philippe Druelle, came to teach osteopathy in Quebec. The profession is currently in the process of being regulated by the Office des Professions du Québec (OPQ). During this transition towards a recognized profession, you can refer to the professional association Ostéopathie Québec to ensure that your osteopath has undergone rigorous training and complies with WHO standards.

Conduct of a visit

An osteopathy session begins with a questionnaire based on health history, symptoms as well as family and traumatic history. Then, a clinical evaluation is carried out to identify the origin of the symptoms. The osteopath elaborates a treatment plan respecting the needs and limitations of the person.
