M Corts


Osteopathy as a manual procedure is an important therapeutic tool in postoperative care. The essence of diagnostic and manual medical procedures in osteopathy is explained. The clinical procedure of osteopathic work is presented on the basis of a case study of a distal radius fracture and cause-effect chains are dealt with in depth.
