What is Osteopathy


Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathy, was born in 1828 in Jonesboro, Virginia, and lead a multifaceted life as a frontier doctor, naturalist, hunter, philosopher, inventor, and mechanic. Drawing from his experiences in the wilderness to shape his scientific exploration of osteopathy, his path was also influenced by personal tragedies within medicine. These experiences lead him to establish the American School of Osteopathy in Kirksville, Missouri in 1892.

Osteopathic treatment is guided by four core tenets that serve as the foundational principles guiding the practice and philosophy of osteopathy.


Unity of the Body

The body is an interconnected unit where everything is interrelated. Its entirety is more significant than the individual components it comprises.

Structure and Function

The relationship between structure and function is reciprocal. When a structure or body part is injured or compromised, it affects the overall function of the body, and vice versa. Similarly, an organ or system's dysfunction can impact the surrounding structures like the spine and biomechanics.

Self-regulating and Self-healing Mechanism

The body possesses innate mechanisms for self-regulation and self-healing. Osteopathy plays a crucial role in removing barriers that hinder these inherent healing processes.

Rule of the Artery

Proper circulation of blood vessels, nerves, lymph, and other fluids is essential for tissue maintenance, health, and vitality. Just as a kinked hose impedes watering a garden, inhibited circulation can affect the body's well-being.
