What's the difference between an Osteopath and Chiropractor?

The main difference between an osteopath and a chiropractor is the qualification they hold. Modern practitioners generally have an overlap in the way they treat. Historically, there is a difference in how the two professions developed and you can read more about this on our sports injury page.

What should I wear?

Try to wear loose, comfortable clothing. A vest top, t-shirt, leggings, or jogging bottoms are most suitable for treatment. 

Can I claim on my private medical insurance?

We are not registered with any private medical insurers. All fees are payable at the time of the appointment. We can provide you with an invoice that can be used to claim back the fees of the appointment.

Can I bring a chaperone? 

You are welcome to bring a chaperone with you. Please try to keep this to one person as there is limited space in the room.

Does treatment hurt?

Osteopaths have extensive training and experience with people who are in pain. Most people report feeling relieved after treatment and wished they came sooner! However, hands-on treatment can sometimes cause discomfort during and after the treatment for up to 48 hours, generally with a marked improvement after this time. Your practitioner will discuss with you to choose what techniques are most appropriate and check in with you to see what pressure is best depending on your pain levels.
