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.
The NSAO will be offering a course with Brad McCutcheon M.Sc. (Ost), Dip(SIM), Dip (MT), WC (Hons), MT, D.O.M.P., D.Sc.O.

The Layered Approach to the OA Lesion:
This course deals with the common problem with OA corrections, does your patient need to have it done? Is it truly an OA lesion or not? Using assessment tools this course will help you determine what approach is required for the lesion you have found. We will delve into the world of energy, using it to add to the liquid and solid worlds of Osteopathy and see how it changes the findings in a patterned OA lesion. We will deal with the concept of patterning and how to determine when and how to intervene when one is present. The use of force will be discussed and avoided whenever possible. Using the concepts of ligamentous articular strain, functional correction, recoil and facet release we will create ways to clear up these lesions without an impulse for use in geriatrics and pathologies.
