Synopsis by Alice Day
Those who favor alternative approaches to health care view the process of healing differently from traditional practitioners of medicine. Osteopathy focuses on the muscle and skeletal systems of the body to find the origins of ailments instead of treating symptoms. In Natural Born Healers: Osteopathy, a patient named John talks about relying on pain medication for treatment of his back pain. While the medicine was helpful, he wanted to pursue other means of pain control. His improvement after consulting an osteopath has convinced him of the virtues of the technique.
