Caption: Osteopathy. Hands of an osteopath manipulating the head of a baby with infantile colic, a painful build-up of intestinal wind. This craniosacral osteopathy is to treat the misaligned skull plates that have led to the vagus nerve becoming trapped. The vagus nerve is connected to the digestive system. Osteopathy is a medical system that acknowledges the importance of the musculoskeletal system to a healthy body. A disorder in one part of this interrelated system may cause problems in another. After diagnosis, treatment commonly involves manual manipulation, stretching or the application of pressure.
