Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that works on the joints, muscles and the spine with the aim of improving mobility, function, posture and health across the whole body. 

Somatic dysfunctions of the joints may cause various problems in the musculoskeletal framework and sometimes affect the function of the organs as well. These problems can arise, for example, as pain, headaches, stiffness, nerve problems or inflammation of the tendons or fascia.
