Manual osteopathy is a unique specialty in Prince George and is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal and joint complaints. Osteopathy is the field of study and practice that assesses the body as a whole and treats the body in a caring, gentle, hands-on and attentive way. There are many stubborn chronic conditions that can be treated quite effectively using manual osteopathy.
The techniques used in manual osteopathy are muscle energy technique, osteo-articular mobilizations, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation and many other soft tissue modalities.
A note of clarification. Manual Osteopathy is NOT osteopathic medicine and is not covered by MSP (regardless of whether a medical doctor has given a referral note).
