Do osteopaths prescribe exercises?

Yes, osteopaths can include exercise recommendations in a treatment plan.

The musculoskeletal system is the main focus of manual therapy, known as osteopathy. Exercises are one of the many methods that osteopaths employ to treat conditions that affect the muscles, bones, and joints.

Exercise can be a helpful approach to managing pain, increasing general health and well-being, and helping to improve flexibility, strength, and mobility.

For many conditions, such as back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, and sports injuries, osteopaths may recommend exercises as a component of a treatment strategy.
