Guidelines


The Foundation for Scientific Osteopathic Research (SWOO) provides guidelines. These provide an overview of the osteopath’s research and treatment methods. The guidelines do not prescribe a treatment method, but are intended to invite osteopaths to take a balanced evidence-based decision for research and treatment of clients. The full pdfs of the guidelines can be found under “Available Guidelines”. You can also click through the guidelines (below) digitally and directly to the item you want to know more about.

Available guidelines (in Dutch):
Nek en hals
Intieme zones
Richtlijn zwangere vrouwen CONCEPT
