Osteopathy is a method of evaluation and analysis of the musculo skeletal, visceral, circulatory, neurological and cranial systems. Osteopathy is a natural medicine with the intention of restoring the normal function of the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalances that may be the result of injury, illness, stress, and the chronicity of daily living.

The Osteopathic practitioner will use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and precision of gentle palpation to evaluate and treat the primary causes of dysfunction. The Osteopathic practitioner evaluates the position, mobility, and the quality of the motility of the tissues to determine what is primarily in dysfunction.

Osteopathy supports the philosophy that the body has an innate and natural ability to self regulate and heal. This ability is maintained by the unimpeded circulation and integration of all the body\\\'s systems of fluids and movements. The obstructions of these mechcanisims are the focus of the osteopathic evaluation and treatment.

In a typical treatment the Osteopathic Practitioner will begin with a full interview of the patient followed by a complete Osteopathic evaluation. A treatment plan will then be devised, discussed and executed. The treatment plan will be directed towards restoring the body\\\'s circulation, and ease of movement within all the systems of the living person, encouraging the self-regulation and healing process.
