Overview of Osteopathy
Founded in the United States in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still, physician and surgeon. Osteopathy is a manual therapy based on precise palpatory acts, which aims to restore the body’s mechanical harmony by drawing on human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics.
It restores flexibility and mobility to tissues, using appropriate techniques to encourage the body to function harmoniously and optimally. By restoring movement to all structures (bones, muscles, fascia, organs, etc.), the body regains its harmony and capacity for self-regulation.
Osteopathy recognizes the need for medical examination or diagnostic tests of any kind, when indicated.
Your osteopath will work in collaboration with your doctor, or any other health professional involved with you.
Therefore, this approach can work for you, no matter your age, occupation, or symptoms.
