Associação e Registo dos Osteopatas de Portugal (Association and Registry of Osteopaths of Portugal) – AROP
We have 43 members
Osteopathy was regulated in 2013 as a first contact profession (patients come directly, although many health professionals recommend).
In 2015 the recognition of professionals with the attribution of professional certificates was made. By February 2018, 805 bills had been awarded for osteopathy.
In 2016, the first degrees in osteopathy were approved and accredited, having started 7 degrees throughout the country that year and following.
Currently, only those who have a professional card can practice osteopathy, but there is no supervision unless there is a complaint.
Professional liability insurance is required.
