Osteopathic manual practice (founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in USA) is an established internationally recognized manual therapy system of assessment and treatment, which lays its main emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
Osteopathic manual practice uses a variety of hands-on physical treatments. These include soft tissue therapy, osteoarticular techniques, positional facilitated release technique, techniques of Still, osteopathy in the cranial field, visceral techniques, oscillatory techniques, muscle energy treatment and functional (strain and counter strain) techniques. These techniques are normally employed together with therapeutic exercise, dietary, and occupational advice in an attempt to help patients recover from pain, disease and injury.
