    Hi there I am a Chiropractor, and wanted to get a consensus on whether my definition of Chiropractic compared to osteopathy needs any amending? Obviously with any generalisation there will be sweeping statements between an osteopath and chiropractor, but I want it to be as accurate as possible.

    In my ignorance and speaking as a "lay person" with limited experience of both my (perceived) difference is

    Osteopath : Is mostly concerned with the soft tissue components of the body (somewhat ironic due to the title) and has the basic premise that "soft tissue components decide where bones go"
    ie: lengthen, strengthen and manipulate soft tissues correctly and suffciently and intrinsic skeletal issues (bar disease) will resolve themselves

    Chiro: the opposite ie "put the bones in place and the soft tissue components will follow" etc.

    However please excuse my paraphrasing (and potential ignorance)

    Osteopath - correct spinal movement and muscle function = healthy body

    Chiropractor - correct spinal and nerve supply allowing the body to heal naturally = correctsignals to and from brain to rest of bpdy.
