The osteopath is a health professional holding a title obtained after 5 years of study in a training organization jointly approved by the Ministries of Health and Higher Education.
The diagnostic or therapeutic management of patients by an osteopath is exclusively manual. Its field of competence is defined by decree and extends to the management of all functional disorders of the human body, in particular musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal. The majority of osteopaths practice as a liberal profession and therefore receive their patients in private practice. This is why income in osteopathy can vary greatly from one practitioner to another.
How to become an osteopath? To work in osteopathy and open your own practice, you must have an osteopath diploma. It can be prepared over 5 years in a specialized institution. These schools are generally private but deliver a diploma thanks to a complete and rigorous training. This is the case, for example, of Ostéobio. This benchmark school of osteopathy has been training professionals for more than 30 years. Thanks to its multiple training courses, initial and continuing, combining theory and clinical practice, Ostéobio promises financial autonomy to 78% of its students, after only one year of experience, 83% at 3 years and 100% at 5 years .
What is the income of an osteopath?
What remuneration can a young graduate in osteopathy claim? More and more people can now become employees by working for specific structures such as sports halls for example, or public establishments. But being mostly liberal, the income of osteopaths varies from one practice to another. The average price of an in-office osteopathy consultation can be around 50 or 70€. Some will even go up to 90€. After deducting charges and other expenses, the average net remuneration of an osteopath would be around 2000 or 2500€ per month. But it all depends on experience as well. A young graduate can claim around 1300€ per month while a renowned and experienced osteopath can earn up to 10,000€ per month.
