Professionalism And Safety
Osteopaths must complete 4 to 5 years' rigorous medical and osteopathic training. This is very similar to a medical degree with particular emphasis on human anatomy and the musculoskeletal system.
All osteopaths are required to have professional indemnity cover and follow a strict code of conduct. The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) governs osteopathic practice by statute. You can therefore expect safeguards similar to those when visiting a GP or dentist.
