Visceral Osteopathy in Tirana, Albania

Professional Visceral Osteopathy service from Dr. Andrea Settembrini, licensed in Physiotherapy and specialized in OSCE. 

Visceral Osteopathy deals with the internal organs, i.e., it normalizes the liver and intestines, improves digestion and metabolism. This method of treatment is used for gastrointestinal tract disease (problems with peristalsis, constipation, etc.), helps eliminate gynecological problems, treats chronic diseases, and is used to warn varicose veins.

Visceral Osteopathy is a relatively new and not yet widespread trend in medicine and physiotherapy, but at the same time it is developing rapidly. As one of the branches of general osteopathy, it deals with the treatment of mechanical, functional disorders of internal organs of the abdomen, pelvis, chest.

What is the role of the viscera in causing pain?

A musculoskeletal pain can be mentioned from the viscera.

When you consider the position of the organs and the spine then you can easily understand the link between them. For example, our throat is in line as well as attached to our cervical spine, the lungs on the other side with the thoracic spine and in the end the digestive tract with the lumbar spine.

Those formations have ligaments that keep them in their prime position and the function of the ligaments, on the other side, is a decisive factor for the accurate functioning of both the spine and the organs of the human body.

Frequently Asked Questions

Osteopathy is an established system of clinical evaluation and manual therapy. Respects the relationship between body, mind, and spirit in health and disease. Specifically, it deals with the relationship between the structure of the body and the way it works, as well as its innate tendency for self-healing.

Osteopathy is based on three basic principles:

  • The body has the innate ability to repair itself.
  • The body is a unit.
  • The structure and function of the body are connected in two ways.

We could say that osteopathy is a philosophy, a science and an art. 

  • Philosophy because it contains the idea of the unity of body structure and function in health and disease.
  • Science, because it includes chemistry, physical and biological sciences for maintaining health, prevention, treatment and elimination of disease.
  • And finally, art because it is the application of philosophy and science in the practice of Osteopathy.

The osteopath, seeing and palpating the spine and the surrounding aerobic systems, can predict, stop the problem and allow the internal forces of the body to better innervate our organs, as these organs are innervated by the sympathetic, parasympathetic and cerebellar nervous systems.

The Visceral Osteopathy makes use of evaluation and treatment techniques which also involve light palpation in order to get to know whether too much tension is held in the abdomen, rib cage or even pelvis. 

Generally, osteopaths who are trained in continental Europe pass through visceral training during their undergraduate studies. In comparison with the UK trained osteopaths who tend to study visceral osteopathy at a postgraduate level.

When we refer to visceral osteopathy then we might benefit to the management of:

  • IBS – Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Digestive issues.
  • Acid reflux.
  • Constipation.
  • Painful menstrual cycle.
  • Infertility.


In spite of the fact that there does not exist much scientific evidence when referring to the visceral osteopathy, some results in day-to-day practice might be exceedingly satisfactory. In this case, we believe that additional research is needed in order to shed light on such a dynamic branch of physical therapy as well as the medical field.
