Research and evidence

Osteopathy is an emerging practice and although founded over 100 years ago, continues to develop and deepen its practice potential.  Osteopathy is now supported by an increasing evidence base and osteopaths utilise a wide range of clinical and knowledge information from many medical, healthcare, philosophical and other sources.

Through their extensive pre-registration (often to Masters level), osteopaths are independent health practitioners who support the public directly and who can support the NHS by working as Allied Health Professionals.  Osteopaths remain autonomous first contact practitioners, who support patients using approaches based on their founding principles. 

This section discusses research and evidence, and illustrates the ideas and concepts osteopaths hold about how women and children may be supported by osteopathic hands on care.  Not all evidence about osteopathic practice is currently complete, but this section will help you understand what osteopaths are seeking to explore, and how they may contribute to the care of women and children though independent practice, and through collaboration with the wider healthcare community.
