Osteopathy was founded by American physician Andrew Taylor Still in the 19th century. It is the original form of manual therapy, from which arose other complimentary disciplines such as chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and more. The osteopathic practitioner uses an extensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, as well as a keen sense of palpation, to evaluate and treat mechanisms of health. Treatments are gentle, precise, and enjoyable. Whenever possible, osteopaths work closely with other health-care professionals and physicians to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient. The goal of osteopathic treatment is to optimize the auto-regulatory capacity of the human body by restoring musculoskeletal, cranial sacral, visceral,
circulatory, and nervous function.
In essence, osteopathy helps the body help itself.
