» The goal of Osteopathic treatment is to assess and treat the WHOLE person, to get to the root or underlying cause of illness and pain in the body and treat the problem at the source, instead of simply masking the symptoms.
» Practitioners educated in Osteopathy are highly skilled health care professionals with refined palpatory skills developed through many years of extensive and intensive training.
» Osteopathy recognizes that symptoms may not originate in the area in which the patient feels discomfort or pain. There may be several factors contributing to the symptoms that the patient is experiencing. Practitioners are skilled at finding the root of the problem.
» Osteopathic treatment is very efficient, reducing the number of visits required.
