Hoba Chenari, Manual Osteopath
As a manual osteopath Hoba emphasizes his treatment on assessment, and physical manipulation of muscle tissue and bone. The two essential components of Osteopathy are; one, structural assessment and two, all the different techniques for the treatment. The aim of the structural assessment is to identify specific somatic dysfunctions. Diagnostic criteria for somatic dysfunctions focus on the tone and possible abnormalities of tissue texture. Areas of asymmetry and misalignment of bony landmarks are also evaluated, along with the quality of motion, balance, and organization. The term Osteopathy currently includes more than 20 types of manual treatments administered by osteopaths.
Being passionate about the human body and its dysfunctions, Hoba started his path to explore the human body by studying medicine at the age of 18 at Guilan University of medical sciences.
