Osteopathy remains largely unknown in the world of ophthalmology, yet it is becoming more common its application in the prevention and improved vision. In addition, it offers very good results in the treatment of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, strabismus and glaucoma, among others.
Causes of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism
In the treatment of myopia, hipermetropia and astigmatism, osteopathy improvement defects light refurbishment, working each of the bones of the orbit and ocular lens assembly. The symptom to detect the deformation of the eyeball is blurred or distorted vision. The main causes that can cause this deformation usually by shares during childbirth or pregnancy. Also can be produced by a compression of the cranial bones develop disorders of muscles, nerves or arteries, causing defects in vision, as well as the focus of the eye.
In the case of astigmatism due to the irregularity in the curvature, the spherical shape is altered by changing to a more elliptical or oval preventing the focus from far and near. Astigmatism may be associated in some cases nearsightedness, farsightedness or otherwise isolated.
Osteopathy as a treatment
The osteopatia work each cranial bone and ocular vault in order to release all suturares, muscle, or nerve structures arteriovenous tensions. Thus, we will refund the eye its spherical shape and functionality, as well as a correct position as the axis of the eye. It is important to start treating the child from an early age, preferably before seven years to avoid complications.
Other problems arising from view as in the case of the early cataracts or presbyopia, osteopathy can help level the vascularization of the eye, improving the deterioration corneal. In the case of glaucoma, also called intraocular stress, osteopathy works as drainage favoring the movement of blood and significantly decreasing the internal pressure of the eye.
The Cranial Osteopathy can release tension around the eyes, acting in the bones of the orbits and intracranial membranes and improving vision in a fairly efficient way. In addition, acts on the circulation of the blood, lymph, cerebrospinal fluid and releases the pressure of nerves and blood vessels surrounding the eyes. The qualified osteopath valued by different tests cranial sutures and neurovascular bundles. Work areas through joint dysfunction, visceral, membranous or posturology techniques, without forgetting the connections to the rest of the body. All complemented with exercises and specialized therapies.
