Osteopathic Principles

Based on the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the body, there are:

4 osteopathic principles

  1. The body is a unit of body mind and spirit
  2. The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms, having the inherent capacity to defend, repair, and remodel itself.
  3. Structure and function are reciprocally inter-related.
  4. Rational therapy is based on consideration of the first three principles.
