Osteopathic manual practitioners use their palpatory skills to seek out areas of the body that are restricted (not moving normally) or constricted (strangled or squeezed). These areas can be in any of these systems:
Osteopathic manual practitioners seek to identify and then gently ease the restrictions or constrictions so the body can function normally again.
Manual osteopathy is based on 4 basic principles:
|Each structure in the body supports the body’s functions. If a structure is damaged, out of place, or otherwise not working properly, the body will not function at its best.|
|The natural flow of the body’s fluids – lymphatic, vascular, and neurological – must be preserved and maintained.|
|The human body is the sum of its parts. Its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems don’t work independently -they work in harmony.|
|When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.|
Osteopathic manual practitioners recognize that a patient is an integrated whole. When all the body’s components are in balance, a person is complete and in total health.
