Blog Osteopathy

Osteopathy blog is a regularly updated part of the website.

Osteopathy is a gentle manual therapy safe to use on people of all ages from newborn to seniors.

To begin, osteopathic manipulative medicine is a core set of techniques of osteopathy and osteopathic medicine distinguishing these fields from the rest of medicine.

Parts of osteopathy, such as cranial therapy have been labeled pseudoscience and are said to have no therapeutic value.

The techniques are based on an ideology created by Andrew Taylor Still (1828–1917) which posits the existence of a myofascial continuity – a tissue layer that connects all parts of the body.

Non-physician osteopaths and osteopathic physicians attempt to diagnose and treat somatic dysfunction by manipulating a person’s bones and muscles and therefore address a variety of ailments.

To conclude, OMT techniques are most commonly used to treat back pain and other musculoskeletal issues, and are less commonly used to treat systemic conditions such as asthma and Parkinson’s disease.
