Looking for an Osteopath?
Osteopathy is unregulated in Ontario. Look for someone who has full training with post graduate training. Most insurance companies will re-embers the fees for osteopathic practitioners who have proper training .Any patient seeking treatment should inquire as to the training of the student or Osteopathic Manual Practitioner that he is consulting with. It is important to understand that practitioners from other institutions may not have undergone the same training, or had the same clinical supervision as those attending the CCO. In addition, not all colleges insist upon a research component, a cornerstone element that the CCO feels is crucial to becoming a well-integrated Osteopathic Manual Practitioner.
