Manual osteopathy is fairly new to the Canadian health-care system, although it is widely used in Europe in the prevention of joint and muscle soreness, cramps, tightness, and injury, and to assist in quick recovery of athletes suffering from any of those conditions.
Prenatal treatment also helps to relieve back pain for an expectant mother resulting from the extra weight of carrying the unborn child.
Treatment is an alternative for certain painkillers that could be damaging to the fetus.
