What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy takes a holistic, whole-body approach to healthcare. It uses manual ‘hands-on’ techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics, without the use of drugs.
An osteopathic physician does not concentrate only on the problem area, but uses manual techniques to balance all the body systems, and to provide overall good health and wellbeing. Diagnosing and treating conditions using these techniques is called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM).
Techniques include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance, known as osteopathic manipulative medicine. An osteopathic physician may also issue prescription medicine and use surgical methods to support the holistic, manual treatment. Many osteopathic physicians also serve as primary care physicians in fields such as family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics.
Fast facts about osteopathy
• Osteopathy uses a drug-free, non-invasive form of manual medicine that focuses on the health of the whole body, not just the injured or affected part.
• The osteopathic physician focuses on the joints, muscles, and spine.
• Osteopathic intervention can help treat arthritis, back pain, headaches, tennis elbow, digestive issues, and postural problems.
• Treatment can also assist with sleep cycles and the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic symptoms.
What are the differences between Chiropractors, Osteopaths and Physiotherapists
• Chiropractors are trained to take and read x-rays which may be appropriate in cases such as trauma or pathology.
• Osteopaths are not trained in radiography or radiology, their therapeutic approach has more similarities to that of a chiropractor than differences. If an Osteopath requires further imaging they can easily request x-rays or scans at an imaging centre.
• Physiotherapy is a very broad-based training. Physiotherapists have to work with a diverse spectrum of conditions, ranging from breathing problems to post operative rehabilitation. Therefore, if you choose a physiotherapist for your back pain, we would suggest you choose a physiotherapist with a special interest in the field of back pain or spinal therapy. Traditionally, physiotherapists are less 'hands on' with their treatment of back pain, using more exercise-based approaches.
