Osteopathy is a medicine, both preventive and curative, based on manual techniques. It is based on the concept that the body is a whole and health through the functional balance of all the structures that make up the human body.
As a complementary medicine, it focuses not only physical symptoms but also lifestyle and the overall condition of the patient.
