Underpinning osteopathy is the idea that the body has self-regulatory mechanisms and therefore that it has the capacity to heal itself, that the structure and function of the body are closely inter-related, and that the somatic aspects of disease aren’t just manifestations of disease but also contribute to maintenance of the disease state.
Osteopaths will commonly treat back pain by manipulation, but may also use soft, tissue massage or advise exercise. Osteopathy was established in the UK in 1917, and has been subject to statutory regulation since 1993. It is regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (www. uk).
