What is Osteopathy and Chiropractic?

Osteopathy is a system and philosophy of health care that separated
from traditional medical practice about a century ago. It places emphasis
on the muscular-skeletal system, hence the name (“osteo”
refers to bone and “path” refers to disease). Osteopaths
also believe strongly in the healing power of the body and do their
best to facilitate that strength. Osteopaths, chiropractors, and physical
therapists are the experts in manipulations (adjustments).During this
century, the disciplines of osteopathy and more conventional medicine
have been converging.

Not dissimilar and closely related is chiropractic. This is a a method
of treatment that manipulates body structures, especially the spine,
to relieve low back pain, headache or high blood pressure and for the
purpose of alleviating neural dysfunction. This system of diagnosis
and treatment is based on the concept that the nervous system coordinates
all of the body’s functions, and that disease results from a lack of
normal nerve function
