Osteopathy, or osteopathic medicine, is based on the belief that most diseases are related to problems in the musculoskeletal system and that structure and function of the body are related.
The musculoskeletal system is made of the nerves, muscles, and bones all of which are interconnected and form the body’s structure.
Osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still, he believed that every disease or illness began with structural problems in the spine.
Long nerves connect the spine to various organs in the body.
According to Still, when there is a problem with the spine, the nerves send abnormal signals to the body’s organs.
Still called these spinal problems “osteopathic lesions” (“osteo” for bone and “pathic” for diseased), and created osteopathic manipulation techniques (OMTs) to treat them.
These treatments, he believed, would return the nerves to their normal function and allow the blood to flow freely throughout the circulatory system.
With structure restored, the body’s own natural healing powers would be able to restore full health.
Osteopathy also pioneered the techniques that have become known as craniosacral therapy, which is now practiced in different disciplines.
Craniosacral therapy is the gentle manipulation of the bones of the skull to restore balance to the whole body.
