What about my doctor

Since regulation by Parliament, osteopathic treatment has been recognised by the medical profession. In many cases you will be referred to an osteopath by your G.P. Osteopathic treatment, like dentistry, can be given independently or in conjunction with your doctor. It is not necessary to see your doctor before consulting an osteopath, although if you are unsure, talk to your doctor first. Frequently, with your permission, communication with your G.P. will be made to ensure continuity and co-operation in your care.
