What is the difference between osteopathy and manual therapy?

Only physiotherapists or those with a medical diploma can be manual therapists, but anyone can call themselves osteopaths.
As opposed to the manual therapist, the osteopath attacks the areas in pain with manipulative grips, without detailed anamnesis or assessing prior medical records and having a treatment plan. Manual therapy treatment always starts with taking a detailed anamnesis which is followed by inspection, palpation, active-passive movement examination and segmental examination, all of which helps in setting up a treatment plan. It is followed by treating blocked segments, loosening and stretching soft tissues and teaching stabilizing exercises.

On 21 March, you are welcome to our open house where our physiotherapists will assess your condition in a 30-minute appointment, make further therapy recommendations if necessary, and we will send you all this information by email.

On the same day you can buy a season ticket with a 15% discount and book a single physiotherapy / therapeutic massage appointment with a 20% discount.

The event is free but registration is required.
