Body Lab Milano


Osteopathy is a holistic approach towards treating the person as a whole and understanding the issues you may suffer from; typically pain and reduced movement. Following a thorough case history, observation and palpation, the osteopath identifies the issue and by working with the whole body system incorporating muscles, bones, vessels, nerves etc, promotes your body's natural tendency for healing and improved health.

Osteopathy looks at the relationship between your body, including any structural issues, your posture as well as other aspects of your life, such as your work, exercise, sleep and how all these elements function together. Osteopaths treat and advise to reduce pain and find ease in your everyday life.


Osteopathy is a patient centered practice. It is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems through highly developed palpation of a person’s muscles, joints, connective tissues, viscera and identifying and treating the cause of the symptoms.

Osteopaths search to enhance a person’s well being through finding the cause of the symptoms and then using a variety of techniques to reduce pain and enhance overall health and well being. Typical presentation that we can help, include;

Back pain, lumbago, sciatica, disc problems, upper back, neck pain.
Joint sprains, tendinitis, muscle pain, arthritic pain.
Headaches, mandibular pain, neuralgia, sinusitis, problems concerning the ear such as dizziness or otitis.
Sport injuries.
Visceral issues; Irritable bowel syndrome, reflux, indigestion, gastritis, colitis, hernias, painful periods and many other issues.


Osteopaths are sometimes the last attempt to sort out an injury or pain related problem, yet the more the profession becomes better known and accepted into general culture, it is becoming the first port of call.

In the United Kingdom osteopathy has been widely recognised and since 1993 following the Osteopathic Act continues to grow and develop under the regulatory body The General Osteopathic Council (GOSC). Both Jo and Fabio are registered practitioners with GOSC.

Currently, in Italy the osteopathic profession is under the process of being reshaped and reviewed and regulation of the profession is imminent.
