The Benefits of Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathy is based on a precise sense of palpation (touch) which frees restriction in our body’s tissues to restore normal function. Osteopaths determine the cause of pain and dysfunction rather than concentrate solely on the symptoms.

The osteopathic practitioner is required to finish five years of study which includes a thesis study to be defended to a panel of officiants.
