Andrew Taylor Still 1914

The discipline of osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. The term is composed of the words “osteo”, which means bone, and “pathy”, which is derived from empathy or sympathy (not from the term “pathos” = suffering, as many believe).

In osteopathy, we pursue the concept of salutogenesis, which means we strive to find healthiness.
