Sanasport Proves that the Osteopathic Profession Grows in Europe

Irving, TX (PressExposure) February 18, 2011 -- The increasing demand for Osteopathic services created a new trend and is now being taught in highly skilled training centers linked to clinical practice, such as Sanasport.

Osteopathy is a discipline that is taking a long rise in recent years and is supported by professional associations and organizations such as the European Federation of Osteopaths (EFO).

"In 1989, the VUB (Free University of Brussels) was the first in Europe to offer university education of Osteopathy and Manual Therapy. Since then, Osteopathy has become one of the hottest trends from across Europe on training" - states Francisco Javier Rivas, director of Sanasport.

The statement is supported by the fact that associations and organizations have emerged to regulate the professionin almost every European country. In May 1997 the European Parliament Osteopathy defined it as an independent profession of physical therapy.

Following the footsteps of Andrew Taylor Still - who named his new school of medicine "ostheopaty", in 1874- the discipline went back beyond the walls of university classrooms to be taught in specialized highly skilled training centers linked to clinical practice, such asSanasport. This center pioneered the teaching of Osteopathy in Spain and is now Spain's leading school.

Francisco Javier Rivas considers the teaching of Manual Medicine as "the most important means for communicating the clinical experience of every day." In Sanasport, courses and workshops are complemented by actual practice in an associated clinical center itself.

After 20 years of work, the place has become one of the schools that maintains the tradition and quality of the studies of Osteopathy, but students can also complete their training with other disciplines such as chiropractic or massage sports. The different techniques of Manual Medicine are taught together and globally. Hundreds of students pass each year through its halls supported by the best and most modern facilities.

Manual medicine techniques are being increasingly demanded by both sportsmen and experts as non-professional users who have any condition and therefore will become one of the jobs of the future. Techniques to study sports medicine are a safe bet that will guarantee many jobs within the health area in the future.
