Within osteopathy, movement is considered a fundamental element of our health. Everything in the body needs movement to function properly. This includes the freedom of movement of tissues, organs, blood vessels, and nerves in the body.

An osteopath is trained to sense and determine if a loss of movement is related to your complaints. The osteopath examines the body from top to bottom for the mobility of almost all structures, including internal organs as well as muscles and joints. The osteopath uses only their hands during treatments, no drugs or equipment. It is a safe method, and not many treatments are needed for a good result.


Osteopathy can offer support for symptoms of endometriosis. Structures with endometriosis inflammations, adhesions, and scar tissue as a result of endometriosis usually have reduced mobility, resulting in pain. Osteopathic techniques can be used to improve the freedom of movement of structures that do not move resiliently and elastically, thus provoking pain.

Improving physical mobility, and specifically of the organs in the pelvis and abdomen, can provide relief in addition to treatments in conventional medicine. In some patients, pain returns over time after a surgical procedure, although there are no new endometriosis lesions present. This is often caused by the formation of adhesions and scar tissue as a result of surgery or because completely removing deep lesions was not entirely possible. Osteopathy can play a significant role in treating functional complaints and complications associated with endometriosis, both before and after surgery. Osteopathic treatments can contribute to reducing pain symptoms after a surgical procedure, thus promoting quality of life. The osteopathic techniques used during these treatments extend beyond the pelvic floor and pelvic area but focus on the entire bodily function.

Tailored Treatment

Osteopathy can provide improvement in cases of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS): pain during sexual relations, decreased fertility, bladder and bowel complaints, menstrual complaints, nerve pains, complaints in the lower back, sacrum, tailbone, pubic bone, and radiating pain to the legs. Studies show that osteopathic treatments have positive effects on the quality of life of patients with endometriosis.
