Chiropractic and Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathy and chiropractic are the useful and known therapies for the treatment purpose of musculoskeletal system. In these  therapies practitioners mainly work with bones, muscles, and connective tissue, using their hands to diagnose and treat abnormalities of structure and function of musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors are more likely to push or work on vertebrae with their hands, whereas osteopaths tend use the limbs to make levered thrusts. Thus, the osteopathic and chiropractic techniques are converging, and so much of their therapeutic agent is shared. The most important potential and naturally occuring adverse effects of osteopathy and chiropractic are stroke and spinal cord injury after cervical manipulation. That’s why many of the Practitioners use a range of soft tissue techniques that do not involve high velocity thrusts.
