What is Osteopathy?

Dr. Andrew Taylor Still

Dr. Andrew Taylor Still,  Founder of Osteopathy

Osteopathy for back pain and associated disorders was founded by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, M.D in 1874. Dr. Still was a both a physician and a minister.

He treated his patients using what medical discipline that was available at the time and became increasingly frustrated with the severe toxicity associated with those treatments.

He was ultimately compelled to find a different way when three of his sons died of spinal meningitis as he was helpless and could not offer them any treatment.

Osteopathy utilises a gentle manual therapy using a profound knowledge of anatomy, neurology and physiology to effect changes on the body and bring about a state of health and wellbeing in the patient.

Whilst being able to significantly ease symptoms the focus is on elimination of causative factors.
