What is an osteopractor?

Osteopractors use advanced manual manipulation and treatment techniques in addition to traditional physical therapy to provide relief from a comprehensive range of injuries and other painful musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. They identify and resolve the underlying source of your discomfort and accelerate your recovery by providing cutting-edge evidence-based manual therapy and treatment techniques while educating you on managing your condition independently.

Why should I consider using an osteopractor?

Choosing an osteopractor is an excellent decision because these highly skilled professionals combine the skills of multiple specialties — physical therapy, osteopathic, chiropractic, & acupuncture but in an evidence-based context.

By having an osteopractor oversee your care, you are undergoing treatment that is more evidence-based than any provider. Save yourself time and money trying to figure out the type of provider that should be responsible for your care or undergoing imaging. Osteopractors use special tests that are more accurate than imaging like X-ray and MRI so you don’t need to wait to see us. Osteopractors, like chiropractors and osteopaths, use manipulation techniques to improve spinal alignment and mobility. Osteopractors, like manual therapists and massage therapists, use mechanotherapy to improve soft tissue length and function. Osteopractors, like acupuncturists, use fine needles to stimulate a healing response and reduce pain. Osteopractic care has more supporting evidence than surgery and other treatment interventions.

Visiting a single provider is far more convenient for you, but the benefits don’t end there. Osteopractors have qualifications in differential diagnosis and multi-modal management. That means they can diagnose your condition accurately and rule out other causes, and they offer a greater choice of treatments for your condition.

Osteopractors have such a specialized skill set that there are very few available. Take advantage of your opportunity to benefit from their expertise by calling Back To You Osteopractic Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation today or using the online form to book an appointment.
