Osteopathic Principles

“Osteopathic Principles” is a set of guidelines that underpin the practice of osteopathy, emphasizing the interrelated nature of structure and function within the body. These principles espouse a holistic approach to health care, advocating for the body’s innate healing mechanisms, and recognizing the role of lifestyle factors in disease processes.

The core tenets include: the belief that an individual is a unit where body, mind, and spirit are interconnected; understanding that the human body possesses self-regulation mechanisms; appreciation of how structure and function are reciprocally interrelated; and acknowledging that rational treatment should be based on these principles.

In clinical practice, osteopaths apply these principles by focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, utilizing manual techniques known as osteopathic manipulative treatments (OMTs). Such application facilitates patient-centered care which promotes overall well-being rather than merely treating symptoms.
