What is the difference between a manual osteopath & osteopath?



What is the difference between a manual osteopath & osteopath?

 In Canada and USA; osteopaths refer to osteopathic physicians who provide surgery and prescribe medications (similar to medical doctors). Manual osteopaths on the other hand are manual therapists who provide only hands-on treatment (no surgery, no medications).
In all other countries the terms “manual osteopath” and “osteopath” are generally mean the same professionals.
