Osteopathy is a drug-free non-invasive manual medicine technique that focuses on total body wellness by treating and strengthening the viscera (organs), cranial system, as well as the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners can take care of you from head to toe. It’s a 360-degree view of your health with all of its connections.

Yes your headache may actually be caused by a change in physiology of your back.
