Is Osteopathy right for me?
Osteopathy is a type of alternative medicine which relies on the physical maneuvering of muscle and bone tissue. The word osteo derives from the Ancient Greek word for ‘bone’, and ‘pathy’ from the word ‘pathos’, meaning ‘responding or sensitive to’.
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is believed to be introduced by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in response to his clinical observation in regards to the significant role the skeletal and muscular systems played in an individual’s general health and well-being. Today, doctors licensed in osteopathic medicine are known as DOs, with thousands of DOs found across the United States alone.
Osteopathic medicine has been found to treat, but is not limited to, the following:
• Joint restrictions or joint abnormalities
• Circulation promotion
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
Before starting any exercise for an injured or diagnosed area of the body, it is important that you consult your physician.
