Osteopathy in Canada

The Regulation of Osteopathy in Ontario

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario holds the license for Doctor of Osteopathy and recognizes only practitioners trained in USA. Manual Osteopathic Practitioners in Canada are not licensed physicians, but are trained in Traditional Osteopathy as set by Founders. At present the traditional Osteopathic Practitioners in Canada are seeking recognition and regulation for the profession through official venues working with Canadian authorities. The demand for the osteopathic practitioners is on the rise and it is a contributing factor to regulate Osteopathic Manual Practice in Canada. If you require to see a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy) you need to seek a roster of DO’s from the College of Physicians and Surgeons since this is the organization who secures their position in Ontario.

At Health Spectrum we provide Traditional Osteopathic Treatment according to our educational consensus of Osteopathic knowledge and skills that we have obtained from Canadian College of Osteopathy and from continuous upgrading courses.
