Frequently Asked Questions

An Osteopath is a healthcare professional who is trained to diagnose and treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions using manual therapy and other techniques. Osteopaths work with patients to help improve their overall health and well-being.

Osteopaths and physiotherapists are both healthcare professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions. However, there are some differences between the two professions:

  1. Training and education: Osteopaths receive more training in manual therapy techniques, like massaging and manipulating muscles, bones, and joints. Physiotherapists receive more training in exercises and rehabilitation to help patients get stronger and move better.
  2. Scope of practice: Osteopaths are trained to take a holistic approach to healthcare, considering the whole person rather than just their specific condition. They may also provide advice on exercise and lifestyle changes to help manage symptoms and improve overall health. Physiotherapists generally focus more on helping patients recover from injury or surgery and regain strength and mobility.
  3. Treatment types: Osteopaths often use manual therapy techniques like manipulation and massage. Physiotherapists may also use manual therapy, but they usually focus more on exercises and rehabilitation to help patients recover from injury or surgery and get stronger and move better.

Osteopaths receive extensive training in manual therapy techniques, including techniques for manipulating and massaging the muscles, bones, and joints. Osteopaths consider a person’s overall health and well-being, not just one specific issue. They may also give advice on exercise and lifestyle changes to help manage symptoms and improve overall health.

Unlike Osteopaths, Chiropractors receive training in spinal adjustments and other techniques to help realign the spine and improve function. Chiropractors usually focus on the spine and how it affects the nervous system. They may use techniques like spinal manipulation to help improve function and reduce pain

Osteopaths may be able to help alleviate the symptoms of a pinched nerve and improve the function of the affected area through the use of manipulation and massage techniques  

How often you see an osteopath depends on your specific needs and goals. You will need to take into account a few factors such as:

  • The severity of your condition
  • How well you respond to treatment
  • Your overall health and well-being can affect how often you visit.

At first, you may visit an Osteopath once per week, and then visit less often as your symptoms improve.

Yes. Osteopaths work to relieve the symptoms of sciatica by finding the cause of the pain. In many cases, sciatic nerve pain can be improved by reducing muscle spasms, increasing joint movement, and improving spinal function. This helps relieve stress on the affected areas. Treatment may include manual techniques to manipulate joints, muscles, or tendons to reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve.

After initial pain has been reduced, an osteopathic treatment plan will focus on rehabilitation exercises to prevent future episodes. This will include an exercise program that restores mobility, builds strength in the posture, and activates muscles.

Yes. Osteopathy can be used to treat both functional and structural scoliosis. For functional scoliosis, the cause of the condition, such as muscle tension or joint restriction, can be identified and treated. For structural scoliosis, the curve cannot be reversed, but treatment can help relieve strain on the tissues affected by the curve.

Osteopaths use a range of techniques, including manual therapy, exercise, and lifestyle advice, to help their patients manage their symptoms and improve their overall health and well-being. They may also refer patients to other healthcare professionals if necessary.
