OSTEOPATHY

Discover the benefits of osteopathy care in Mississauga at INNOVA Integrated Wellness Centre as part of our holistic approach to helping our patients move better, feel better and live better.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is based on the premise that the human body has the innate ability to heal itself and is equipped with all the tools necessary to do so. The body is capable of repairing itself and maintaining its own health. The body structure and function are closely interrelated and when the structure is off it can affect function and vice versa. When this occurs, the body may have a difficult time doing what it is naturally programmed to do. With the gentle guidance of Osteopathic manual care, the body is able to regain proper structure and function to put itself back into balance.

FAQ’s About Our Osteopathy Services

INNOVA Integrated Wellness :: Frequently Asked Questions

An osteopathic manual practitioner is a practitioner of traditional osteopathy and works with the body to enhance its natural ability to self-regulate and heal itself.

Osteopathy and chiropractic both have the same foundations and share the similar philosophy. However, while they both strive to achieve the same outcome the treatments for each may look very different. Osteopathic manual therapists use more mobilization techniques, soft tissue stretching techniques and visceral manipulations in achieving the desired outcome. Chiropractors also use mobilizations however they commonly use more joint manipulation and commonly incorporate a variety of other tools such as acupuncture, instrument assisted therapies, electrotherapy and rehabilitative care in treating conditions.

Osteopathy is a safe form of therapy that can be used to effectively treat pregnancy related pains and strains. Osteopathic treatment can aid in allowing the body to adapt to the postural changes that occur during pregnancy and assist with the aches and pains that come along with increased pressure and tension on muscles and ligaments.

The practice of (non-medical) Manual Osteopathy is not currently recognized as a regulated health profession under the Ontario Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, or any other legislation.  However, many Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (OAO) members are regulated health care professionals, such as nurses, massage therapists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists, who have sought additional education and training in order to provide manual (non-medical) osteopathic assessment, care and treatment.

Group health insurance (extended health) benefits in Ontario often include the services provided by Osteopathic Manual Practitioners who are OAO members. Please contact your benefits administrator for information about your group plan, benefits and limitations with respect to coverage for the services of an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner who is an OAO member.
