Osteopaths assess and ensure that all tissues and structures in the body move properly, and Physiotherapists look at function ensuring that proper exercises maintain alignment and prevent further injury. Physiotherapy modalities and acupuncture are valuable in decreasing pain and stimulating healing. With combining the two, we see improved outcomes and treatment is more efficient.
Should I see a Physiotherapist or an Osteopath first?
If this is an acute (recent problem) or post surgery or a fracture, then seeing a physiotherapist first would be best.
If the problem is more chronic and involves multiple areas or you have plateaued with previous physiotherapy treatment then seeing an Osteopath is indicated. Whoever you see first in the clinic you will be assessed and referred to see an Osteopath, Physiotherapist or Massage therapist as necessary.
