History of Osteopathy

Osteopathy was founded in the late 1800s by Andrew Taylor Still, an American physician and surgeon who viewed the body as having the natural ability to recover from ill-health when functioning effectively.

He developed an approach that integrated manual techniques to affect body function so as to enable the body to ‘restore health’.

This approach officially became known as 'osteopathy' in 1885, and in 1892 Still formed the American School of Osteopathy in Kirkville, USA, to teach others his methodologies.
