An Osteopath is a whole body physical therapist who provides relief through looking at the causes of pain and not just the symptoms you present the Osteopath with.
Osteopathy has its closest medical links to Chiropractors and Physiotherapists although Osteopathy applies a whole body approach rather than pure muscle or spinal treatments. As with physiotherapy and chiropractors, Osteopaths work to treat the problem or symptom but as a further endeavour it is an Osteopaths main aim to locate the cause of the pain and to treat causes of pain and discomfort.
