Osteopathy can be used in all medical areas where functional disorders are the cause of the complaints. As a first measure, osteopathy can also be used alongside other medical treatments. The latter especially when it comes to severe pathologies, i.e. serious illnesses. In any case, an interdisciplinary treatment of the patient is desirable in order to optimize the patient’s recovery.

 

What is the goal of osteopathic treatment?

The primary goal is to improve a changed, misdirected function, be it of the musculoskeletal system, joints, muscles, myofascial structures, organs and the associated vascular, lymphatic and nerve tracts. Osteopathy as a treatment method merges with the modern scientific medical knowledge.

History of osteopathy

Osteopathy originated in the USA in the middle of the 19th century. At this time, conventional medicine developed rapidly. Due to the increasing specialization and subdivision into individual specialist areas, however, conventional medicine moved further away from the concept of holistic medicine. In search of alternatives, the doctor Andrew Taylor Still developed a new therapeutic concept:

The osteopathy.

His student, the American doctor William G. Sutherland, developed the concept of cranio-sacral osteopathy in the 1920s. The treatment mainly takes place on the skull (cranium) and on the sacrum (sacrum). The youngest area of osteopathy, visceral osteopathy, was founded especially by Jean-Pierre Barral in the 1970s. In visceral osteopathy, both the mobility of the organs in relation to one another and the surrounding muscle and connective tissue are examined and treated.

Important for our patients

In order to offer you the best possible care, we invite every new patient to a 30-minute welcome appointment at the next level.therapy and training center before the first treatment. Within these half an hour you will be welcomed by our management, our rooms and treatment options will be presented to you and an initial anamnesis interview will be held. This gives you and our therapists more time for the treatment.

Please send us the digital Medical history before your first appointment by email oliver@ihr-nextlevel.de or bring it with you, printed out and filled out.

Cost of the osteopathic treatment:

For an osteopathic treatment of 30 minutes we charge a fee of € 40.00, for an hour of € 80.00. For a treatment by Andreas König, it is € 50.00 for 30 minutes and € 100.00 for one hour.

Statutory health insurance:

Statutory health insurances partially subsidize osteopathy. You can find an overview of all statutory health insurances under (information without guarantee):

If your health insurance company supports osteopathy, you will need a “recommendation for osteopathy”, which you will receive from your doctor (general practitioner, orthopedist, gynecologist, orthodontist, etc.) on a private prescription. This recommendation is not contingent, i.e. the doctor is not restricted with regard to the number of recommendations per quarter.
