Do Physiotherapists Refer to Manual Osteopaths?
A 2013 survey finds that over 10.6% of the patients that manual osteopaths treat in the USA, Canada and Europe are referred to them by physiotherapists. Physical therapists make up the third most common referral sources of manual osteopaths. By manual osteopath we mean European style osteopaths as opposed to American style osteopathic physicians who perform surgery and prescribe medications. Manual osteopaths limit treatments to hands-on manual therapy.
