Osteopathy takes a holistic approach to healing as it focuses on the body as a whole – bones, joints, muscles, and organs. Manual Osteopaths not only focus on treating the signs and symptoms, but the source of the pain or condition and it’s contributing factors as well.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a gentle form of manual “hands on” therapy.

Osteopathy was founded and created by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in 1874. Dr. Still believed that by treating the musculoskeletal system and organs, you could treat a variety of diseases and conditions without the use of drugs or surgery. This would also spare patients from the negative side effects of these modalities.

Osteopathy is derived from the Greek words “osteo” (bone) and “pathos” (suffering).

Osteopathy is based on the following principles:

1) The human body is a dynamic unit of function.

2) The structure or the body governs it’s function.

3) The body is self-healing and regulating.

4) Treatment is based on the first three principles.

Osteopathy takes a holistic approach to healing as it focuses on the body as a whole – bones, joints, muscles, and organs. Manual Osteopaths not only focus on treating the signs and symptoms, but the source of the pain or condition and it’s contributing factors as well.

Manual Osteopaths treat musculoskeletal disorders through the mobilization of bones and joints. They also use a variety of techniques to help restore function to the body such as muscle energy techniques (METs), soft tissue therapy, cranial osteopathy and visceral manipulation. Other techniques that may be used include, but are not limited to: trigger point therapy, myofascial release, ultrasound, shockwave and laser therapy (if trained).

Osteopathy has been shown to be an effective treatment for chronic, and certain types of acute pain. Many conditions can be treated through osteopathic treatments. More information on the conditions that can be treated by osteopathy can be found below.
