Manual Osteopathy Edmonton | Sherwood Park
History of Manual Osteopathy
In the late 1800s, Andrew Taylor Still MD was credited as first using the term ‘Osteopathy.’ When regular conventional medicine failed to save his wife and daughters from meningitis, Still changed his views on the conventional way. He determined that there had to be a better way than resorting to drugs and highly invasive practices.
In 1892, Still founded the first Manual Osteopathy school called the American School of Osteopathy. The focus and basis in the practices taught were aimed at restoring harmony and balance in the body. Since then, Osteopathy has evolved and spread into a worldwide alternative medicine practice.
