What do osteopaths do?

Osteopaths are healthcare professionals who specialise in osteopathy — a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its connection to overall health.

Osteopaths use manual techniques such as manipulation, massage, and stretching to diagnose, treat, and prevent a wide range of health issues. They aim to restore balance and function to the body, improve mobility, relieve pain, and promote overall well-being.

Osteopaths treat various conditions including back and neck pain, joint pain, sports injuries, headaches, digestive issues, and more. They may also provide lifestyle advice, exercise programs, and ergonomic recommendations to support their patients’ health goals.

Do osteopaths have specialties?

Yes, osteopaths have specialties just like other healthcare professionals. While osteopathy itself is a holistic approach that addresses the body as a whole, osteopaths may choose to focus on specific areas of practice or patient populations. Some common specialties within osteopathy include:

Sports osteopathy

Pediatric osteopathy

Women’s health osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy

Geriatric osteopathy

Structural osteopathy

7. Holistic Health

Osteopathy takes a holistic approach, considering the interconnectedness of the body systems, which can contribute to overall health and well-being.

8. Improved Function of Body Systems

By addressing musculoskeletal issues, osteopathy can indirectly benefit other body systems such as the nervous system, circulatory system, and digestive system.

9. Pregnancy Support

10. Personalised Care

Osteopathic treatments are tailored to each individual's unique needs, allowing for personalised and comprehensive care.

Osteopath vs Other Modalities

What is the difference between an Osteopath, Physiotherapist and Chiropractor?

Osteopaths, physiotherapists, and chiropractors share a common emphasis on manual therapy techniques to aid their patients in recovery and improve well-being. The main difference lies in their approaches and methodologies:



Focus on holistic treatment, emphasising the body's ability to heal itself. They use manual techniques such as manipulation and massage to address musculoskeletal issues and promote overall health.



Specialise in rehabilitation and physical therapy, aiming to restore function and mobility through exercises, stretches, and manual therapy techniques. They often work with patients recovering from injuries or surgeries.



Primarily focus on spinal adjustments to correct misalignments (subluxations) in the spine, aiming to improve nervous system function and alleviate pain. They may also use additional therapies such as massage and exercise.

While all three professions deal with musculoskeletal issues, they differ in their treatment philosophies and techniques. It’s essential to consult with each practitioner to determine the most suitable approach for individual needs.
