Sometimes, despite treatment with medication, soreness and feeling of discomfort do not disappear. This may mean that you need to look at your issue from a different perspective: your body might need a physical boost. This is where such practices as physiotherapy and osteopathy come into play.

Let us introduce to you our physiotherapist and osteopath Marta Pontiveros Carrión.

MARTA PONTIVEROSAlso known as “Marta Magic Fingers”, as nicknamed by some of our patients who, after putting themselves in her hands, have left more than satisfied with their sessions. Marta has 17 years of experience in the professional field; she has worked at the Ipswich Hospital in England for 5 years and at the Newmarket Hospital for 2 years.

What are physiotherapy and osteopathy?

Physiotherapy

Also known as physical therapy, it is a discipline of health science that serves to diagnose, prevent and treat symptoms of multiple ailments, both acute and chronic. It can act through physical agents, such as electrotherapy, ultrasound, laser, heat, cold, and water. In addition, it makes use of manual techniques, such as stretching, traction and massage. Such neurological problems as Parkinson’s disease, brain damage, multiple sclerosis and others can be treated through physiotherapy.

 

Osteopathy

On the other hand, osteopathy is based on joint manipulation, soft tissue treatment, visceral and cranial treatment. It is based on theory that the body is capable of developing its own remedies against diseases. The body’s balance and ability to self-correction is restored by accepting the manual therapeutic method. Our bodies are a very intelligent system that adapts quickly to internal changes, compensating them with new “adjustments” of the positioning of the organs. These treatments are indicated to people of all ages.
