About Osteopathy

Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) is a precise manual therapy practice which employs gentle manipulations to treat the body.

Osteopathic care is based on the principles of the body as a complete self regulating unit, where structure and function are interrelated on all levels, and with healthy tissues requiring proper function of the circulatory and nervous systems.

The goal of treatment is to restore balance within and between the primary systems of the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, digestive and cranial. This is achieved by assessing the body for areas of restriction or altered function, and applying treatment to restore mobility, and promote proper alignment.

The treatment methods employed by Osteopathic Manual Practitioners are guided by refined palpation skills and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. Osteopathic practitioners have many options for treatment and choose methods which are appropriate for the person being treated and the nature of the injury or complaint.

Osteopathic treatment is gentle and effective.

FAQ

How do you treat?

Osteopathy is a manual therapy which uses the practitioners hands to assess and treat. The treatment approach is considered to be very gentle. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners adhere to strict standards of practice ensuring the safety, comfort, and confidence of the client.

Do you offer direct billing to my private health insurance?

No

Direct billing to insurance providers is NOT available at this time.

Who do you treat?

People of all ages.

What do you treat?

Osteopaths address areas of somatic dysfunction, which is a technical way of saying that we address body structures that do not move as they should.

Osteopathic Manual Therapy is used to treat musculoskeletal pain (shoulders, back, neck, hips, knees, feet, ankles etc.), headaches, digestion and more.

Do you guarantee that I’ll get better?

No.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners treat somatic dysfunction(s) (tissue mobility restrictions) that can be manually assessed in your body. If these restrictions are causing or contributing to your symptom(s) then we see typically improvements, or resolution.

How quickly will I improve?

If a somatic dysfunction is the underlying cause of the complaint, meaningful results are typically seen within the initial treatment plan (i.e. 4-6 treatments) but can vary based on the specific issue(s) and health history.

How long are treatments?

Treatment sessions are typically 60 minutes in length which includes time for reviewing and updating health history, conducting manual assessment(s) and treatment, design or review of home care exercises (if required), and payment.

Children’s treatment sessions are typically shorter, 45 min in duration, but the length of the session is dependent on the individual and the primary complaint(s). The standard 60 minute duration is held for Children’s sessions at booking should the extra time be required.

What should I wear to an appointment?

Please wear comfortable clothing that permits movement (ie: t-shirt and shorts, track pants, yoga pants etc.).

When is payment due?

Payment is due at the end of treatment and is part of the allotted time of the session.

How can I pay?

Credit, Debit, Cash, Cheque

Do I get an Invoice?
