What Is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is an alternative health practice that deals with the body as a dynamic unit of function. An osteopath will also look at the body as a whole. They will determine the root cause of the problem, rather than just dealing with symptoms. It’s a hands-on, manual treatment, that is integrative in using knowledge of anatomy, physiology and mechanics of the body.
