Osteopathy - Special Part

Osteopathy uniquely combines its concept, principles, and methods, artfully applying this union to the patient.

Osteopathic Concept

The osteopathic concept is based on three pillars:

  1. Philosophy
    Life is experienced as indivisible, and the human system is an expression of this totality of life. The human being in his entirety is a subunit of a larger whole (microcosm = macrocosm).
  2. Science
    Physical, chemical, and biological science combined with the maintenance of health, prevention, and treatment of diseases through appropriate procedures.
  3. Art
    The artful implementation of philosophy and science in practical application.
Osteopathic Principles
  1. The body, with its constituting parts, is a unit, and the human is a unit of body, mind, and soul.
  2. The human’s ability in the living body for self-regulation (homeostasis) and self-healing with the maintenance of health within.
  3. Function (physiology) and structure (anatomy) mutually influence each other.

Osteopathic examination and treatment are based on the application of the above three principles.

Osteopathic Methodologies
  1. Osteopathic biomechanical methodology
  2. Osteopathic biokinetic methodology
  3. Osteopathic biodynamic methodology

Osteopathy works diagnostically and therapeutically using the above three methodologies on the parietal, visceral, and craniosacral levels.
