Osteopathy: An Overview
Osteopathy is an integral component of physiotherapy that focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders through manual techniques. By understanding the body’s interrelation of structure and function, osteopathy offers a holistic approach to healing.
How Does Osteopathy Work?
