Why I study Osteopathic Manual Therapy ~ Erin Chaba
I noticed manual osteopathy was on my health plan from work, so I thought I would give it a try. Within the first minute of my visual evaluation with Nathalie (tremendously talented Manual Osteopath and Physiotherapist in Canmore at Consensio Clinic) she asked what occurred with my clavicle? It's the only bone I have ever broken, it happened when I was a couple months old.
The numerous physio's, chiropractors, massage therapists, body workers I've seen throughout my life had never mentioned anything about seeing it. If I had mentioned it, it was passed over as too old to do anything with it or that clavicle are not important as they are not weight bearing.
Within one session the difference I felt in my body was remarkable. Every session I have, I am amazed at the areas that get addressed like organ placement, health of bone yielding, the interconnections of the entire body from head to toe.
I was a little sad after my fist few sessions. I had so many injuries/areas that had never been addressed even though I had been active in receiving a variety of health modalities. I decided to study Osteopathic Manual Therapy because of the difference it makes in my life.
