What Is Osteopathy?
Osteopathic manual therapy is based on the principle that the body is a whole, not a collection of pieces. Osteopaths believe that the parts of your body work together (like a symphony) and that all parts must do their job properly for optimal health. Have you ever had a co-worker that wasn’t pulling their weight? Did they complain or did you? It’s the same with the body, if a muscle, joint, or organ stops functioning optimally, another part is forced to pick up the slack and sooner or later it gets upset. Osteopaths search for patterns in your anatomy and physiology which leads us to understand the ‘why’ behind your symptoms.
Osteopathic manual practitioners must have an excellent working knowledge of anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) in order to remove any restrictions to your ability to move effectively. The improvement in movement then optimizes blood flow, lymphatic drainage and nerve signalling ability. This translates to a reduction in symptoms, such as reduced pain, better sleep patterns and increased energy and vitality
Principles of Osteopathy
Classical osteopathic manual practitioners are trained to follow the teachings of the founder Dr. Andrew Taylor Still who coined osteopathy as a manipulative science in 1874. Classical osteopathy is performed based on key principles:
The Body Is a Dynamic Unit of Function
The functioning of the human body relies on all parts working with one another optimally. If one area of the human body is in discord it will have an effect on other areas of the body.
Structure and Function Are Reciprocally Interrelated
If the anatomical structure is in good working order, the physiological functions of the human body will also be in good working order. Deviations in anatomical structure will lead to compromise in physiological functioning.
The Body Has the Innate Ability To Self-Heal and Self-Regulate
When the body is in perfect working order, it automatically has the ability to heal itself through regulated natural processes.
Reasons to see Osteopathic Manual Practitioners
Osteopathy is based on the philosophy of treating the body on the table, rather than chasing
symptoms or medical diagnosis. While osteopathic practitioners do not directly treat medical
conditions, they are able to restore the function and bring health to areas being affected by
