EXTENDED HEALTH PLANS
Osteopathy services are offered at our two clinics in downtown Toronto, both accessible through the PATH. Our osteopaths have significant training and have engaged in extensive post graduate courses to be able to provide the most comprehensive treatment plans possible.
Osteopathy manual practitioners utilize non-invasive manual therapies which focus on achieving total body health/mobility by rehabilitating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. This includes the joints, muscles and spine in addition to the body’s nervous, lymphatic and circulatory systems.
What is an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner?
With their extensive training in manual osteopathic practice these practitioners can assess and treat patients utilizing gentle manual techniques. They treat, not by concentrating on the problem area, but by using manual techniques to synchronize balance in all systems of the body to provide optimal health and well being. This leads to greater overall mobility, reduced pain and helps promote the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

What are the Benefits of Seeing a Manual Osteopath
Osteopaths at Integra Health Centre take a holistic approach to treating the entire body including joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This approach distinguishes osteopathy from other disciplines. Manual Osteopaths understand the interconnected nature of the human body and aim to treat the cause of your condition. This approach extends the benefits of osteopathic treatment beyond initial symptom relief and helps to prevent or reduce recurring conditions. Osteopathy is known to positively affect the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems. While treatment outcomes do vary, people often experience noticeable improvement to their movement, mobility, and overall health and well-being.
