Osteopathy

Origin and Theory of Osteopathy

Osteopathy was developed by Dr. Andrew Still (1828 - 1917) from the USA in the 19 th century. The body is considered a unit in osteopathy and the organs in the body are inter-related. Osteopathy assumes that many illnesses are caused by the malfunctioning of the musculoskeletal system. Andrew Still was convinced that the health of the body was dependant on the efficiency of the spine. A misalignment of the vertebrae has an affect on the inner organs whose nerves leave the spine at the respective points. This is how a person becomes ill.
