What is it?
Osteopathy is a form of manual, hands-on therapy, focusing on the relationship between the structure and function of the human body. Founded by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (Dr. A.T. Still) in Kirksville, Missouri in the late 1800s.
Osteopathy is a patient-centered approach to health, according to the principles of osteopathy the body is a self-regulating, and functional unit. The healthy tissues of the body require adequate circulation of blood, nutrients, and other essential bodily fluids.
A manual osteopathic practitioner is skilled with palpation (examining through touch) and an understanding of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics. Using their skills they try to restore balance to different systems (musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, cranial and visceral) of the body.
Using a wide array of manual techniques, often referred to as mobilization to help remove system restriction, reducing bodily stress and support proper healing and circulation.
Osteopathic manual techniques also include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance to help an individual understand and learn more about their body. The main idea practitioners want patients to understand is that functional problems usually arise from structural impairments and vice versa. Since the body is seen as a whole unit, it is important to find the cause and root of an issue when treating it.
Osteopathy can provide relief and treatment for a wide range of conditions.
