A classically trained, Osteopathic manual practitioner makes use of an in-depth understanding of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and the principles that were outlined by its founder Dr. A. T. Still in 1874. By removing the obstructions that restrict the flow of nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatics and the cerebrospinal fluid; an osteopath is trained to restore health, balance and well being to their patients through adjustment of the body in a gentle, vitalistic and holistic nature. Osteopathic care has been found to be of use to people with all types of health concerns including: musculoskeletal issues, spinal health, traumatic injury, digestive irregularity, sleep problems, reproductive issues, respiratory health, migraines (and the list goes on).
The classically-trained Osteopathic manual practitioners working at Village Osteopathy have the highest standard of training in Canada as they have successfully completed a program consisting of no less than 4,400 hours of education at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton, Ontario. Following their college graduation, each practitioner has also demonstrated the skills necessary to pass a national-level exam process through the Ontario Osteopathic Association.
