Tenets of Osteopathic Medicine
The American Osteopthic Association’s House of Delegates approved the Tenets of Osteopathic Medicine as policy which follows the underlying philosophy of osteopathic medicine.
1. Each person is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind and spirit.
2. The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing and health maintenance.
3. Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
4. Rational treatment of patients is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation,
and the interrelationship of structure and function.
