Osteopathy is a manual therapy that considers the body as a whole in order to prevent, diagnose, and treat dysfunctions in the body. It involves all structures composing the body, and helps restore the body’s naturally healthy state. Osteopathy takes into account the different connections between the systems composing your body: physiological, anatomical, psychological, and environmental.
For example, the loss of mobility of a joint, a muscle, a ligament, or the viscera, can create symptoms elsewhere in the body.
It is the job of the Osteopathic manual therapist to find the cause of the patient’s symptoms. Surprisingly it is often not located where we feel the pain. Every appointment we will observe you from head to toe to access what your body needs at that particular time.
“To find health should be the object of the physician. Anyone can find disease”
-Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, Founder of Osteopathy
