Osteopathic Approach – Tenets of Osteopathic Medicine
* The body is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit.
* The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.
* Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
* Rational treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.
“The Osteopath should find health. To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.”—AT Still, DO Founder of Osteopathic Medicine
