WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy that allows the practitioner to work with the patients body in order to remove anatomical restriction and facilitate the body's natural ability to heal.
The job of an osteopathic practitioner is to look at the body as a whole in order to find the underlying structural cause that is leading to the symptoms. This is done exclusively through manual manipulation of the body, without the use of surgery, drugs, or other aids.
