Caption: Osteopath measuring the relative discrepancy of the ilia (hip bones) of a patient suffering from scoliosis. Osteopathy is a form of therapy which was founded in 1874 by doctor Andrew Taylor Still. It is based on the concept that the musculoskeletal system, formed by bones, muscles, tendons, joints, tissues, nerves and spinal column, plays a central role in the patient's well-being. The osteopath uses various manual techniques, including pressure, stretching and manipulation to diagnose a dysfunction and restore movements to the joints.
