What is osteopathic medicine?
Osteopathic medicine is a “whole-body” approach to medicine. The emphasis is on treating the entire person rather than just a set of symptoms. While osteopathic practitioners are licensed to prescribe medication and perform surgery, just like other medical practitioners, they differ from some of their colleagues by focusing on a patient’s entire body, rather than specializing in one particular area.
Is osteopathy the same as chiropractic?
While there are many crossovers between the work of chiropractors and osteopaths, the main difference between the two is in their different areas of focus. Chiropractors are primarily concerned with the skeletal system, joints and spine, osteopaths take a more holistic view of the body.
What is osteopathy used to treat?
Osteopathy is used to treat a variety of conditions such as arthritis, back pain, headaches, tennis elbow, digestive issues and postural problems.
