Regulation of Osteopathy

Regulation of Osteopathy

All osteopaths in the UK are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).  It is against the law for anyone to call themselves an osteopath unless they are registered with the GOsC, which sets and promotes high standards of competency, conduct and safety.

Further information can be found at the General Osteopathic Council website:

Sometimes only a few treatments are needed. Other people may benefit from regular treatment or an occasional “service” every few months to keep everything working

Patients are seldom disappointed with the results, and are frequently extremely happy at being able to resume a more active lifestyle

The first graph shows outcomes after only one appointment session with an osteopath:

  • The second graph shows outcomes at the end of the individualised course of treatment for a patient, although the study was only conducted over a course of 3 months, so some patients may not have finished their required course of treatment:
