What is an Osteopathic Manual Therapist? – Coastal Sports And Wellness

Osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Still, M.D. Osteopathy is a natural therapy based on removing the underlying causes of pain and illness, rather than managing symptoms. This allows the body’s inherent self-healing ability to resume. Symptoms, whether involving pain, restriction of movement, digestive dysfunction, fatigue, headaches or migraines, stress, etc. often represent the end result and can be far removed from the mitigating factors. There may be several factors that contributed to the resultant distress.
