What is the difference between Osteopathy, Physiotherapy and Chiropractic?
The main differences are found in the philosophies that each modality is based upon and how the principles of treatment are applied to the patient. It is not for us to explain the theories behind Physiotherapy or Chiropractic, but the main principles of Osteopathy are that the body is a unit and that the structure and function of the body are interrelated.
