5 models in Osteopathy

The 5 models in Osteopathy are conceptualisations or ways of thinking, which describe how we can analyze and influence physiologic processes in the patient.

The individuality of our patients and their patterns of somatic dysfunction require individually designed treatment regiments that are adjusted to the patients’ current health status. The methods used in the assessment and treatment of our patients incorporate one or more of these 5 models.

In the years ahead the osteopathic professions will continue to advance Osteopathic Medicine and Osteopathy, to protect the value and efficiency of osteopathy using advancing scientific methods.
