Osteopathic Manual Practice in Canada
Although osteopathic manual practice has been a well established profession in Europe, the UK, and United States, it is a relatively new profession in Canada.
Osteopathic manual practice was brought to Canada by French Osteopath Philippe Druelle. He established the Canadian College of Osteopathy in 1981 in Montreal. An English school was established in 1992 in Toronto. The school offers a five year part-time program with a thesis required for graduation. The program is open to practicing licensed health professionals with a BSc.
All our staff studying Osteopathic Manual Practice are students of the Canadian College of Osteopathy and use osteopathic manual treatment to compliment their physiotherapy and massage therapy practices.
