In the realm of healthcare, few fields have evolved as significantly as osteopathy. Rooted in a holistic, hands-on approach, osteopathy has come a long way since its early days. And at Tim Wood Healthcare, we’re proud to have been a part of this evolution, serving the communities of Rainham and Maidstone for over 15 years.

A Brief Look at Osteopathy’s Origins

Osteopathy was founded in the late 19th century by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, an American physician disillusioned with the medical practices of his time. Dr. Still introduced the idea of the body as an interconnected system, a belief that continues to be a cornerstone of osteopathic medicine today.

How Osteopathy Has Evolved

As the years have passed, osteopathy has embraced both traditional and modern techniques, continually updating its practice based on scientific research. Today, osteopaths are trusted healthcare professionals who treat a wide range of conditions, from back pain and headaches to more complex issues like arthritis and sports injuries.
