What is Osteopathy
A health-oriented, patient-centered healthcare model that aims to improve the body’s physiological function and/or support its homeostasis that may have been changed by the insults placed on it.
The word Osteopathy was first used in 1874 by Dr A.T. Still (MD, DO) after he discovered the significance of the living human body in health and disease. Osteopathy is Greek for bone (Osteon) and suffering (pathos).
Dr Still founded Osteopathy on the principles of unity of the body; its inherent healing capabilities and recognising the relationship between its structure (anatomy) and function (physiology)
