Learn about the Power of Osteopathy

What Is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a flourishing healthcare system that focuses on individual structure and function. I am trained to address pain that may be a result of trauma, incompetent structure, or the ongoing physical tensions of day-to-day life.

Combating Discomfort

I help the body to heal itself by urging it to work more efficiently. If minor traumatic insults or poor postural habits persist, this may result in pain or discomfort that is often displaced from the area that causes it. I try to affect this imbalance with an array of techniques

The History of Osteopathy

Osteopathy began with the work of Andrew Taylor Still in 19th century Midwestern America, following his frustrations with the inability of medicine to respond to particular needs. He observed the mechanical functions of the body and derived a mechanical, manual system that is the basis of osteopathic work today. With research and experience, osteopathy is growing and refining itself.

Professional Osteopaths

Osteopaths are rigorously trained to screen patients by taking their history and providing an examination to make sure the treatment is appropriate. They may also refer to other reputable specialists. Osteopaths may treat patients in many different ways, however they satisfy the same high standards of training and competence.

As an osteopath, you must be regulated by the General Osteopathic Council, which maintains high standards of service and safety, manages ongoing professional development, and promotes the profile of osteopathy. To be called an osteopath, you must be registered with the council, have completed a full approved course of study, and be insured.
