What is Osteopathy ?
Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that was developed in 1874 by an American physician-surgeon Andrew Taylor Still.
With a holistic approach to health conditions, osteopathy includes all aspects of clinical interaction including case history, examination, treatment and prevention strategies.
