Osteopathy is a holistic, gentle form of treatment concerning the restoration of health rather than the focus on disease. For optimal rehabilitation, the whole body is to be assessed, treated and psychological factors such as stress, need to be considered and evaluated. By performing structural treatments, mostly of neuromuscular origin, the body's physiology improves and pain decreases. If possible, therapeutic exercises are prescribed to round out the treatment.
