On Osteopathy and Alternative Therapies: What Can They Do for You?


Osteopathy works on the principle that good health is achieved and maintained when the bones, muscles, ligaments, and other connective tissues work in harmony. To achieve this end, an osteopath uses massage and stretching therapies so that the body can work to heal itself. Osteopaths don’t use drugs or surgery on their patients, but use their hands to practice their craft.

Osteopathy is becoming increasingly popular in the developed world as a complement and alternative to more conventional therapies. As more and more people spend days hunched over computers or engaging in active sports—with many reporting lower back, shoulder, and neck pains, as well as sports injuries and other aches—the demand for osteopathy increases.
