What is the difference between a chiropractor and osteopath?

Not much! It’s about what works for your body. Chiropractors and osteopaths both seek a holistic approach to treat musculoskeletal and other related issues. While they may be similar, there are subtle philosophical differences between osteopaths and chiropractors.

What Our Clients Say

horticulture team 3

I got in touch with osteoandspinal after my second knee surgery as I was concerned about my recovery. After my initial consultation, Mahsa explained the issue and laid out a thorough plan for rehabilitating my knee. Following the recommended exercises and after a few adjustments, I’m already feeling stronger and more confident. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend osteoandspinal clinic.

I can’t recommend this place enough! I visited osteoandspinal during my pregnancy when I developed a severe back pain. Mahsa made me feel comfortable and at ease by explaining all aspects of the treatment. Over the next couple of visits, she managed to reduce the pain through adjustments and acupuncture.
