For World Osteoporosis Day on the 20th October, The Institute of Osteopathy (iO) will be delivering public health advice and education to patients and the public through our website and social media. We will also provide health promotion information for osteopaths to use on their websites, posters and leaflets for their practices, as well as free face-to-face training, CPD articles in our professional journal and by promoting the National Osteoporosis Society’s e-learning module for clinicians.
The iO is the professional body for osteopaths, representing around 70% of the profession. During 2016, the iO has teamed up with the National Osteoporosis Society to encourage osteopaths to spread the word amongst patients and the public about prevention, detection and treatment of this condition. Osteopaths are in a prime position to screen patients for this silent condition, offering management advice and support as part of our holistic approach.
