Osteopathy is a popular and ‘respectable’ alternative therapy originally developed by Still and based on the idea that physical manipulation directed at ‘osteopathic lesions’ in the spine initiates holistic self-healing processes. Treatment by contemporary osteopaths includes orthodox advice regarding posture and exercise but concentrates on manipulative techniques for musculoskeletal problems.
