The institute of osteopathy is a professional membership body representing UK Osteopathy. We have used their explanation to outline what osteopathy is.

Osteopaths believe everyone can benefit from a tailored, whole-person approach to health. People of all ages see osteopaths, from babies to the elderly.

Osteopaths are highly trained Allied Health Professionals who are well known for their expertise in the evaluation, diagnosis and management of the entire musculoskeletal system and its relationship with other systems in the body.

You can expect your osteopath to take the time to understand your individual history, circumstances and unique physiology and provide a package of care that is tailored to your needs. This can include manual therapy, rehabilitation exercises, screening and general health advice.

They also work closely with other healthcare professionals such as consultants, GPs, nurses, midwives, and other Allied Health Professionals.
