Osteopathy focuses on the musculoskeletal system and the way in which this inter-relates with the body as a whole. It combines scientific knowledge of anatomy and phsyiology, as well as clinicalmethods of investigation. Osteopaths diagnose and treat faults which occur because of injury, stress, or disease. By enabling the musculoskeletal system to work as efficiently as possible, the body is encouraged to restore itself.
I started in the health care field in 2000 as a physiotherapist in Germany, where I specialised in post-surgery rehabilitation. After a few years I noticed how the closed down view of physiotherapywas treating mainly symptoms instead of causes, and although most patients got better, there were too many that kept coming back with the same symptoms. Especially back pain was difficult to treat with techniques that relied mainly on exercises.

Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and treatment of painful conditions which is recognised by the British Medical Association. It is essentially a "hands-on" manual therapy that is basedon the belief that if the structure and alignment of the body are correct, then it will function properly. Dr. Andrew Taylor-Still, the founder of osteopathy, first proposed his philosophy and practice in 1874 in the U.S.A.
Osteopathy is a holistic form of manual therapy which aims to restore normal function to the patient's body, using gentle manipulative techniques. Under 'The Osteopaths Act 1993' osteopathy became thefirst complementary health care profession to be accorded statutory recognition.
