Osteopathic treatment involves looking at the body as a whole to try and find the cause of a problem, rather than just treating the area that hurts. Osteopathic treatment typically involves gentle manual therapy and you will often be given exercises/stretches to continue your treatment at home.
Group health insurance (extended health) benefits, which are paid by private health insurance companies, often include the services provided by Osteopathic Manual Practitioners who are OAO members. Please contact your benefits administrator for information about your group plan, benefits and limitations with respect to coverage for the services of an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner. If coverage is important to you, we strongly recommend you check this BEFORE booking your consultation.

It is impossible to say how many treatments you will need without doing a full case history and examination.

Some patients may only require 1 or 2 sessions but we always hope for you to feel improvements after 3-5 sessions, depending on how long your problem has been present for.
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring someone with you if you would like to.
