Business Description:

What is the difference between an Osteopath, a Chiropractor and a Physiotherapist / Physio?
Osteopathy and Chiropractic both originated in the same area of the United States and both use similar forms of manipulative treatment.  Chiropractic tends to focus on short lever, direct spinal manipulation where Osteopathy also has a wide range of gentle articulatory and soft tissue techniques to be able to treat a wide range of patients, from the very young to the very old.  In the US Osteopathy also became part of the orthodox medical system where many practitioners are family physicians.  Physiotherapy largely focuses on rehabilitation, particularly postoperative and in the UK is becoming increasing hands-off using exercise prescription to treat patients.  High street physiotherapists tend to be Chartered Physiotherapists who have completed additional post-graduate training.

Introduction to Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a drugless form of medicine which uses manual techniques to enable healing to take place in the body.  Whilst more often associated with the treatment of back pain, Osteopathy can treat a wide range of problems such as musculoskeletal injury and dysfunction, headaches, organ dysfunction and even fertility issues.  Osteopaths are primary care practitioners trained in recognising signs and symptoms of disease, and may refer patients to their G.P. for further investigation and medical testing, where appropriate.
