Collaboration with the medical
All patients should consult their physician before undergoing manipulation.
The doctor's responsibility to determine the diagnosis and decide on the best treatment, Outlines, where the osteopath to intervene, holding tight to potential contraindications. This would make sense. The doctor performs a necessary function and the osteopath as an expert in handling a key.
