Podcast - What is osteopathy?

Torsten Liem was interviewed about the mechanisms of action in osteopathy. This interview is about osteopathic touch, empathy and cognition in treatment.

I will take you on a journey from the beginning of osteopathy in Germany to the present day.
I also report on my own experiences with osteopaths from the early days of osteopathy.

You will also learn how osteopaths see disorders, diseases and health in contrast to conventional medicine. And I will share with you approaches that I have developed myself, such as psychosomatic osteopathy.

Likewise, I share my view of the principles of osteopathy today versus when osteopathy first began and what that means for your health.

Anniversary of death - Dr Viola Frymann

To mark the anniversary of my teacher Viola M. Frymann D.O.'s death today, I am making available an inspiring foreword that she wrote in 2008 as the foreword to a book on paediatric osteopathy by Christoph Plothe and myself. She had the expertise to bring together interdisciplinary experts. The workshop was terrific, Dr Frank Willard, Dr Peter Springall (neurologist), Dr Claude Valenti (ophthalmologist) and Dr Yuri Moskalenko complemented Viola Frymann's practical teaching content. 

She was full of inspiration and energy. I still remember well how I had to make an effort to keep up with her on walks and follow her conversation at the same time.

Osteopath Hamburg - Effective treatment for complaints

Osteopathy is a holistic form of treatment that aims to identify and treat the causes of complaints. Manual techniques are used to release tension, improve mobility and increase well-being. Osteopathy treats people as a unity of body, mind and soul and aims not only to alleviate symptoms, but also to have a preventative effect. Common complaints such as back pain and headaches can be effectively alleviated by osteopathic treatments. The choice of a qualified osteopath is crucial for the success of the treatment.

Do we need a new term to better understand the lives of pain patients?

As an osteopath in Hamburg, I encounter people struggling with pain every day. Pain is a complex and profound experience that goes far beyond the purely physical. Previous concepts such as self-efficacy, pain-related anxiety and so-called catastrophising attempt to capture these experiences, but often present an oversimplified picture of the reality of pain patients.
