The term osteopathy (from the Greek words ostéon, meaning bone, and páthos, meaning suffering) was originally used by Andrew Taylor Still to describe the importance of structural integrity (provided chiefly by bone) in preventing disease. Unfortunately a lot of people assume osteopaths are only interested in bones. Bones and muscles do, of course, act together, as do ligaments and fascia…everything in the body is integrated, nothing exists in isolation. We are holistic, so we need to be treated as such.
