"Excellence in Osteopathy and Human Mechanics"

We strive for excellence in the diagnosis, treatment and management in the care of our patients.  We have principles that we apply in every situation.

1. The body is a living whole, everything is connected.

Osteopathy is unique because philosophically and physiologically we understand that structure and function are intimate.

2. Your patient is your textbook

Study it well and it will provide you with all the answers you need.  Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of Osteopathy, demanded that we know our anatomy and physiology in great detail.  Ultimately our patients' bodies are our bible.

3. Perception is defined as obtaining knowledge through our senses.

William Garner Sutherland, the father of osteopathy in the cranial field, taught us how to develop "thinking, knowing, seeing, feeling" hands.  This is our greatest tool for studying living human physiology, mechanicsm and anatomy.  Of course we learn from our books, dissections, CT scans, and MRIs, but no machine is yet capable of the complexity and refinement of human senses and perception.
