What is an Osteopath?
In Canada, an osteopath is a rehabilitative professional who has received training as an osteopathic manual practitioner. This training is intended to compliment a different type of expertise. For example, here at Inovo Medical, Adnan is a massage therapist and a licensed osteopath, however, he practices solely as an osteopath. These rehabilitative professionals work in the tricky but sometimes very rewarding world of correcting structural imbalances in the body. Most osteopathic practitioners have a good background in science.
Treatments are often very tense and involved manual therapy session, which includes stretches, and in some cases, Yoga poses, depending on the expertise of the practitioner.
