Osteopathy and osteopathic medicine make a significant healthcare contribution 

Osteopathy and osteopathic medicine are making a significant contribution to global healthcare with the osteopathic profession now established in over 50 countries, according to a new report released by the Osteopathic International Alliance (OIA) at its annual conference in Austin, Texas on 12 January 2014

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a safe and effective approach to health care which works in combination with the individuals own homeostatic mechanisms to help restore homeostasis and optimal health. It understands the relationship between structure and function within the body and that all aspects of the body must work together to maintain health.

How can Osteopathy play a role in health care in BC and whom can it help?

Osteopathy forms a very useful adjunct to health care options already on offer in British Columbia. Results with chronic pain scenarios, for just one example, happen more quickly than with most other approaches, proving to be less painful and less arduous for the patient - and are much more cost effective.

Osteopathy is concerned with the restoration of the structure and function of the human body using 'hands-on' techniques, often referred to as Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy.
