About Osteopathy At Proactive Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of medicine that deals with the structural and functional mechanics of the body, i.e. bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, nerves and their interdependent relationship with each other.

The term Osteopath was first used by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in 1874 to describe a philosophy and practice of healthcare that he had developed.

Still was the first person to put forward a rational explanation as to why biomechanics (how the musculo-skeletal system works) were so important in maintaining health and well being.

The aim of Osteopathy is to correct problems in the body frame, making it easier for the body to function normally and reducing the chance of problems occurring in the future. In seeking to maintain good health and prevent future problems, the Osteopath's plan may include advice on posture, diet, lifestyle exercise and stress management.
