the history of osteopathy

In the late 1800s, Andrew Taylor Still founded osteopathy, a holistic approach to medicine that believes in the body's innate ability to heal itself. Dr. Still believed that treating the whole person, rather than just their symptoms, was key to achieving optimal health and wellness. Osteopathy has since developed into a respected form of alternative medicine, recognized for its ability to complement traditional medical treatments.

From then to now...

The late 20th century saw a renewed interest in osteopathy as a holistic and natural approach to healing the body. More and more patients sought out alternative and complementary medicine options, leading to increased research and development in the field of osteopathy. Today, osteopathy is widely recognized as an effective treatment for a range of conditions, and many patients opt for osteopathic treatment as a non-invasive and drug-free alternative to traditional medicine.
