Complementary and alternative medicine
The body must move, even the bones that seem immobile (think about the skull) have to move at least a little. Just as the structure of a bridge is designed to move a little. When movement is suddenly limited slightly or completely, problems occur. The surrounding structures will compensate thusly creating tensions that can lead to various troubles.
Causes can be known and quite obvious or may be difficult to discern and can be quite varied, like inflammation, trauma, a fall, sports injury, etc.
Osteopathy is the science of proper movement of the body's various structures. It's objective is to help the body gain movement again or make sure that everything is well tuned so that every part may move and work properly.
It is a very gentle, yet efficient holistic approach to health.
