The Differences between Osteopathy and Chiropractic Treatment

The most predominant difference is that Chiropractors will focus mainly on the spine whereas Osteopaths take a more holistic approach and concentrate on the whole body. Osteopaths will also treat a wider range of ailments including respiratory and digestive problems.

Another key difference lies in the method of treatment. Osteopaths utilise a wider range of techniques while Chiropractors routinely just perform spinal adjustments. Chiropractors are also the more ‘joint focused’ of the two professions.

Both treatments share many similarities, and the difference between the two can often come down to the individual practitioner. No one profession is better than the other, and both are highly effective for treating common complaints such as neck and back pain. The two professions often work in conjunction with one another under the bracket of non-invasive physical therapies.

IDD Therapy
Advanced Pain Relief

IDD Therapy is a full rehabilitation approach. First, there is a Physical Assessment, perhaps followed by an MRI Scan. The results of which are discussed and if appropriate a course of rehabilitation is then planned. Along with IDD Therapy an exercise programme is given to build up core stability. IDD Therapy is capable of delivering back pain solutions that are long lasting and cost effective.


Evelyn Hill

Evelyn was suffering from constant back pain due to herniated disc problems in her spine and was having trouble sleeping because of the pain. She explains how a course of IDD Therapy treatments helped and she is now walking without a crutch and sleeping well.

Mel Parry

I first became aware of IDD Therapy Treatment by word of mouth from a colleague who could not speak too highly of IDD Therapy. My condition was caused by a previous injury that occurred while under military service. I had suffered for a number of years since leaving the military and after trying many forms of treatment I found no improvement. After my very first IDD Therapy Treatment I noticed/felt an instant relief and had the first decent night’s sleep without pain for a number of years. The staff at Leominster Clinic were efficient, knowledgable and very professional. I would recommend this form of treatment to anybody with the same conditions as myself.

Doreen Rees

After my first session on the machine I felt lighter and taller. I was able to stand at my sink to prepare my vegetables and wash up later; before I would have had to sit to do these tasks. My legs and feet have been numb for 3 years and after just one session I can ‘feel’ my toes and wiggle them. Roll on the next few sessions!!!

Alan Godding

I suffered with a lot of lower back pain and pins and needles down my right leg. After my first treatment the pain started to get better and after a couple more treatments I had no pain and the pins and needles were gone. I am now having treatments intermittently to keep everything in check.

Pat Prosser

Having suffered from intense lower back pain for a considerable time, I decided to try the new IDD Therapy Treatment – the result is incredible! The pain has gone. I now walk upright and my sleeping pattern, that had been so bad through pain, is now back to normal. Even a problem that I have had for a long time with my bowels has improved greatly. I would highly recommend this treatment. So thanks, Sally and Simon, you have been great with your help and this wonderful machine. I am now well on the road to recovery.

Anthony Lawson

I cannot speak too highly of IDD Therapy. Three months of excruciating pain caused by severe degeneration of several discs in my lower spine made any kind of movement a challenge. I faced the most unwelcome prospect of having back surgery with its associated post-operative problems. I was extremely fortune in learning my condition could be treated with IDD Therapy. Within the first couple of sessions, the pain levels had reduced considerably, allowing me to regain a measure of mobility that continued throughout the treatment. I am now pain free and some way towards reclaiming my life back.


The IDD Therapy machine has made a big difference to my back pain. I had had low back ache for several years and recently couldn’t sit down for more than about twenty minutes without getting sciatica and pins and needles in my feet. The day after my first session I felt a lot freer and had lost that “scrunched-up” feeling. I have had 15 sessions so far and am now able to sit for longer periods, move more freely and have no leg pain.

Richard Combe

So good to have a ‘pain free’ back after so many years of constant pain. Can bend and do simple tasks which used to take days to recover from e.g., Washing the car! So yes, it’s lifted my spirits and outlook on life. The IDD treatment has reaped benefits and has proved to be very rewarding.

Margaret Saunders

Unbelievable improvement, I can now undertake gardening, walking, and traveling and have a more positive outlook, I am fitter and have lost weight.
