Osteopathy was developed by A.T.Still in the nineteenth century. He reasoned that God made man perfect. Therefore, seen from a mechanical viewpoint, if the body structure was in correct alignment and functioned normally, with no impairment to the flow of blood or nerve impulses, then optimum health would follow.
Osteopathy is a long established system of diagnosing and treating the structure and function of the human body. It involves the treatment of medical disorders through manipulation and massage of the skeleton and muscles. Osteopaths are well known for treating back pain and musculo-skeletal pain.
Osteopaths use many diagnostic tools and procedures used in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis. The training of Osteopaths involves a 5 year degree programme and is now regulated by the General Osteopathic Council ( GOsC ). All major private health insurance companies now recognise Osteopathy as a well established mainstream medicine.
