How Can Osteopathy Help?
Through hands-on diagnosis, the physician can detect and treat anatomical dysfunction that is uniquely imprinted in a patient’s body. Their sense of touch is trained to feel anatomical disorders that may not appear on an imaging scan, including blockages in fluid, trauma to tissues, and compression in bones.
We support research grants for early-stage investigations and pilot protocols in the specialty, including studies of basic physiology, clinical assessment, clinical efficacy, and effectiveness.
