Osteopathy is a natural, comprehensive therapy designed to align and improve the functioning of the entire body. It can be helpful for old and new problems alike, seeking to identify areas of the body that are restricted or constricted then ease those restrictions to permit normal function.
Osteopathy approaches anatomy, physiology, pathology, and biomechanics as interrelated throughout the many systems of the body. Osteopathy uses gentle manual therapy to address gravity lines, reflexes and the reciprocal relationships between the somatic (musculoskeletal system) and the visceral (organ) systems.
A treatment will include a thorough history, an overall physical exam, manual therapy to correct the areas of the body that are predisposing the person to the injury and finally an exercise home program to facilitate your recovery.
In Ontario, osteopaths study for over 5 years and must successfully complete and defend a research study before earning the designation of Diploma of Osteopathic Manual Practice. Therapists are able to incorporate their osteopathic skills into treatments while completing the research portion of their training.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) are health care professionals who assist people to return to their daily activities including work, self care and leisure following injury or illness. OTs work in various settings and in many areas of practice to promote improved function for their clients.
Sylvia Rogan is an OT who practices in a setting that provides hand therapy and splinting for people who have had injuries such as soft tissue tears, lacerations and fractures. She treats clients post surgically following repairs to tendons, nerves and bone. Treatment can include splinting, various modalities, as well as mobilization techniques. Splints are provided for both trauma clients and people with conditions such as arthritis and inflammatory conditions such as carpal tunnel and tendonitis.
She assesses clients and measures improvement based on objective measures as well as subjective improvement of daily function.
