Structure Dictates Function
A.T. Still, founder of osteopathy, said "Structure governs function" - this means that when the body is free to move, it is functioning properly.
Manual Etiotherapy is a holistic approach to find and address the cause of disharmony in the body via recognizing that your health and well-being is tied to the structure and function of all systems working together.
The tenets of modern Osteopathy:
- The rule of the artery is absolute
- The body has the capacity to auto-normalize
- The body functions as a global unit
- The body follows the rule of complexity
- Structure dictates function (but there is a synergy).
