“Allow physiologic function within to manifest its own unerring potency rather than apply a blind force from without.”

Osteopathy

Classical Osteopathy is defined as a holistic, traditional, and drug-free manual medicine. Founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, it is widely considered as the first form of scientific-based manual therapy. Osteopathic treatments are gentle, hands-on and effective in treating many symptoms the body may be experiencing. Osteopathic application is guided by palpation skills and Osteopathic assessment of joints, muscles, etc. The goal of the practitioner is to determine the underlying cause(s) of symptoms and to assist in restoring the natural healing capabilities of the body.

Osteopathic practitioners are trained to use their knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology. They are looking for the cause of your pain, rather than chasing the pain. The treatments are not time-based, they are based on what your body’s needs are at that time.

Classical Osteopathy vs. Eclectic Osteopathy

Classical Osteopathy can be summarized as having an overall understanding of fundamental principles in assessment and treatment. Classical Osteopathy practitioners work diligently to palpate and assess why the body is exhibiting certain symptoms. Rational treatment follows using sense of knowledge and understanding of the human body’s interconnected systems.
Eclectic Osteopathy is typically taught as an add-on to a manual practitioner’s repertoire. These are a set of memorized and protocol-based techniques that are used to parts of the body for a variety of ailments.
Please complete and print out the Health History Form and Cancellation Waiver prior to your arrival for your initial appointment. This will ensure a thorough health history check-up with your practitioner so you can discuss areas of concern in detail when you arrive. Please make sure you include any previous health related issues, including childhood surgeries, falls, infections, etc.
You may also bring any imaging (x-rays, ultrasounds, etc.) and diagnosis results from your primary health care provider to further assist your practitioner.

Osteopathic Assessment

Your Manual Osteopathic Practitioner will assess the quantity and quality of movement of your joints, muscles, tendons, etc. as needed. It is important to wear loose, comfortable clothing so that assessment and treatment can proceed without restriction of clothing.

Classical Osteopathy Approach

Classical Osteopathic treatment encompasses a philosophy based on fundamental principles, not a set of memorized techniques. Techniques can be adjusted and mastered by each individual practitioner, however, the principles of anatomy and physiology are as old as time itself. Classical Osteopathy practitioners do not rely on protocol-based treatment, they vary each treatment based on the patient’s body and health history; thus making treatment very specific for each patient.

Payments

Good Health Osteopathy accepts payment in cash, cheque or e-transfer. Please ensure your cheque is filled out prior to arrival and e-transfers are made prior to arrival to save time at the end of the treatment.

The aim is to strive for the most amount of balance in all areas of our lives. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but we do need to consider the big picture surrounding good health. Good health encompasses a healthy way of life; whether it is physical, emotional, spiritual, social, environmental, financial, nutritional, etc. All these aspects are an integral part of our human functionality, thus we cannot depend solely on “fixing” one of these and forgetting about the rest.

“As Osteopathic machinists, we go no further than to adjust the abnormal conditions back to the normal. Nature will do the rest.”
– Dr. A.T. Still, D.O. (Founder of Osteopathy)
