What is osteopathy? Osteopathy as a practice was founded in the late 1800’s by Andrew Taylor Still, an MD who believed that treating the whole person, body, mind, and spirit, was necessary. He believed in treating the source of the problem and not the symptoms, using hands-on diagnosis and treatment. He held that, "medicine should begin with the patient, continue with patient, and end with the patient." Unlike some other therapies, osteopathy does not stop at the spine as the main source of pain and disease, searching not only the entire body for the source of any ailments, but external influences as well, such as stress, depression, etc What to expect Your first visit to an Osteopathic practitioner will probably require a full consultation and examination, including observation of your movements, while the Osteopath uses palpation to diagnose your condition. This could consist of (but is not limited to) knots in muscles and fascia, joints clicking, and asymmetry between the sides of your body.
