Ostéopathe Paris 16


Osteopathy is a manual, non-invasive, drug-free therapy that aims to improve the health of the entire body system by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

Osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still in the United States. It is based on a holistic concept of the human body where all the components of our organism interact together and influence each other. 

With the evolution of science and medicine, this pattern is known today as the bio-psycho-social system, which is becoming very important in the management of chronic pain.

Charbel J. Kortbawi osteopath in Paris 16 specializes in the care of adults, seniors, athletes and pregnant women.


Acute pain / Chronic pain: what are the differences?​

Acute pain: Each of us has already felt intense and brief pain following a shock, a burn or a lesion: it is a physiological function which constitutes an alert for external aggressions, and thus participates in maintaining the integrity of the body. This acute pain can sometimes justify the use of analgesic treatment.

Chronic pain, meanwhile, is a permanent pain,  suffering from it for at least 3 consecutive months with significant physical, moral and social consequences. It then becomes a disease in its own, altering the quality of life of patients in a lasting way. Pain medications are often insufficient to treat these patients.

Osteopathy helps in the management of chronic pain.

Osteopathy treatments cause direct and indirect changes in the perception of pain and can thus contribute to improving the condition of people suffering from persistent pain due to musculoskeletal disorders.

This is what emerges from a review of the literature carried out by René Pelletier as part of his doctoral research carried out at the School of Rehabilitation at the Université de Montréal under the co-direction of professors Daniel Bourbonnais and Johanne Higgins.
