Osteopaths use a gentle “hands-on” or “manual” approach to detect areas of restricted movement throughout the body. Local concerns are viewed from multiple perspectives, to identify the causative factors behind the presenting problems.
The Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths (NSAO) was established in 2006 to provide a unified voice for Osteopaths in Nova Scotia.We are starting a dialogue with the department of health to become a regulated profession.
Osteopaths in Nova Scotia, under the direction of Dr. Strang and the Department of Health and Wellness have been granted approval to re-open their clinics as of June 5th, 2020. In accordance with provincial recommendations, Osteopaths are required to follow criteria to ensure public health and safety.
