Are osteopaths the same as chiropractors in most countries outside of the u.s.?

No: The approach is different, the techniques are often different, the training is different; although there is some overlap in course work, and in the focus on treating the patient through the musculoskeletal system.

Also osteopathic medicine is often integrated in traditional patient care as well. ..At least in my practice and in colleagues that I know.
