Osteopathy is a registered medical profession that emphasises the importance of the role of hands on diagnosis and treatment to complement diagnostic techniques such as M.R.I. X -rays and blood work. Osteopathy places particular emphasis on the importance of considering the treatment of the whole body for a successful treatment outcome.
- Osteopathy is a registered medical profession in many countries.
- Osteopathy is taught at University graduate and post graduate level.
- Students of Osteopathy study medical sciences such as anatomy, pathology, differential diagnosis, orthopaedics, neurology and radiology.
- Osteopathy places particular emphasis on the use of the hand to diagnose and treat the body in as gentle a way as possible.
- Central to Osteopathy is the concept that ’The body is a unit’ emphasizing the potential influence of distant body parts on the area causing pain.
