What Is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a gentle manual therapy safe to use on people of all ages from newborn to seniors. Canadian Osteopaths are referred to as Osteopathic Manual Practitioners.
Osteopathy is a hands-on manual therapy, working with the bones, joints and soft tissues of the body including the tendons, ligaments, muscles and fascia.
Osteopaths are also trained to work with the Cranio-sacral system (Cranial Osteopathy) and the organs and supporting tissues (Visceral Osteopathy).
Some Osteopaths may also incorporate other physical therapies such as Applied Kinesiology and PDTR.
They are knowledgeable in the use of remedial exercise and may well prescribe follow-up exercises for you to do at home.
Osteopathy works in collaboration with the body's natural healing mechanism, listening to it to reveal its story and then support the needs dictated by its intelligence.
