What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy was founded by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in 1892. He invented the name osteopathy by blending two Greek roots 'osteo' for bone and 'pathos' for suffering in order to communicate his theory that disease and physiologic dysfunction were grounded in a disordered musculoskeletal system.

He was also one of the first physicians to promote the idea of preventative medicine and the philosophy that physicians should focus on treating the root of disease rather than just the symptoms. 
Osteopathy is a gentle, holistic hands-on manual therapy that seeks to treat the body as a whole to assist and help the body to heal itself.
Osteopathy offers effective and
non-invasive treatment for musculoskeletal and related conditions. Using hands-on techniques such as massage, stretching and joint manipulation, osteopathy can help improve pain, mobility, bloodflow and balance throughout the body. Patients can expect a personalized treatment plan that focuses on addressing the causes of their condition, as well as promoting overall wellbeing.
