What is Osteopathy?

During the time of the first world war, Dr Andrew Taylor. Still founded the discipline Osteopathy.

He based this form of manual medicine on four main principles:

  1. The body is a unit – Meaning that the body is interconnected. Health of one area is dependent upon the health of its surrounds.
  2. Structure and function is interrelated – If the structure of our body is out of alignment, its function will be compromised. For example the function of our rib cage is to protect our vital organs, such as our heart and lungs. Also its job is to assist with our breathing. If our ribs are out of alignment or fractured, then these functions will be altered.
  3. The body heals itself – Just like a cut on our finger will heal, so too will the majority of our musculoskeletal problems. An Osteopath’s job is to help empower the body to do that.
  4. Sound Osteopathic practice is based on the first three principles.

Osteopathy is a safe, gentle and highly effective hands-on modality for treating a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, and other functional disorders of the body.
