What is the difference between Osteopathy and Chiropractic treatment?

AtCity Osteopathy and Physiotherapy we offer Osteopathy. Often osteopathy can be linked to chiropractors here we go through the differences. The term ‘Chiropractic’ means to practice by hand with manipulating or adjusting spinal vertebra ‘with one move’. It varies from the Osteopathic approach that first works with the supporting muscles and ligaments in conjunction with re-alignment of the musculo-skeletal system.

Therefore mainstream Chiropractic is more a system of joint release only while Osteopathy addresses the supporting tissue involvement prior to joint mobilization and gentle manipulation.
