Abstract Die Effektivität osteopathischer Behandlungen bei autonomen somatoformen Störungen Gesa Diedrichsen Somatoforme autonome Störungen sind gekennzeichnet durch Symptome eines vegetativ innervierten Organs. Das Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es herauszufinden, ob es Studien gibt, die sich mit auseinandersetzen, deren Validität zu bewerten und eine Aussage zum derzeitigen Forschungssta
