what is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a system of manual medicine which aims to improve health, function and well-being by correction of the mechanical dysfunctions and movement restrictions which are part of illness and which can hinder a return to good health.
Osteopathy was developed in the 19th Century in the United States, by Andrew Taylor Still, but it's real history is thousands of years old. Previously it was known as bone setting or 'shaping' - in fact, the Hippocratic texts of 400 BC describe joint mobilisation as a standard part of medical care.
Joint mobilisation and physical therapy, with an aim to restore general health, has always been an integral part of medical care in Britain, Asia, Europe, the Americas and pre-European Australia.
The first Australian osteopaths were Florence McGeorge and Edgar Culley, both 1904 graduates of the American School of Osteopathy. Both practised in Melbourne. Now, Australian osteopaths must complete an undergraduate degree in Health Sciences followed by a Masters in Osteopathy. Three Universities in Australia - Southern Cross, RMIT and Victoria University - offer Masters degrees in Osteopathy.
Osteopathy has proven to be effective in the management of:
> neck and back pain
> headaches and migraines
> period pain
> sports injuries
> shin splints
> urinary frequency and incontinence
> shoulder, elbow and wrist pain
> hip, knee and foot pain
> rib pain
> post surgical recovery, especially joint replacement
> pre and post natal care
> ... and therefore, insomnia
> post herpetic neuropathy following 'shingles'
> jaw pain
> acute and chronic ankle sprains
... in fact, any problem which has a mechanical component.
