Biomedical Science for Osteopathy 6 expands the students' knowledge of biomedical sciences through application of fundamental principles to the brain, cranial nerves and spinal cord. Patients presenting in osteopathic practice tend to seek care for pain and neurological disturbances, so an understanding of pain processing and neurology is essential.
