What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a complementary and alternative medicine that focuses on treating the musculoskeletal conditions of the body, particularly those that are related to both the spine and the nervous system. It focuses on manipulations of the spine to help reduce pain by correcting imbalances and restricted joints within the spine.
Chiropractic was founded by Dr D. D. Palmer in America in 1895. Since then, chiropractic has spread to most countries around the world and is becoming more and more popular to treat musculoskeletal disorders due to the non-invasion and more natural way of relieving pain.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy, or Osteopathic Medicine, was founded in the 19th century by the American physician Dr Andrew Taylor Still. Osteopathy is a holistic manual medicine that aims to treat the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Through a range of various techniques an Osteopath is able to improve function of the nervous system, assist in joint mobility, increase blood flow, relieve muscle tension and promote the body’s ability to self heal.
