Is it safe?

Osteopathy has a good safety record. Recent osteopathic research has found that moderate to major adverse incidents occur in 1 in 36,000 treatments. 1 in 10,000 is considered safe by the medical profession.

Joint manipulation is not the only form of treatment used by osteopaths. There are occasions where stronger treatment is less advisable e.g. neck manipulation would not be used where there is a high risk of stroke and also gentler treatment would be used if osteoporosis is known to be present or is suspected" If you would prefer a certain type of treatment, please discuss this with your osteopath
