Annex Osteopathy Toronto
Evidence Based | Patient Oriented | Bloor St W
Patient Oriented – Every treatment starts with discussion of your progress, goals and what can be done to help you in your health journey. Every manual technique or post treatment exercise is adapted to your needs. If your goals is to have fun gardening without worrying about your back, then the treatment will include addressing tissues responsible for having strong back in awkward kneeling positions. And your exercises will address movements that make you stronger when lifting cumbersome bags of soil. Don’t worry about dumbbells and therabands, you will be exercising with packs of rice before moving into carrying large bags of soil. But if you need to get stronger and play your favourite sport, then we will make sure that you leave treatment ready to have fun and play. And your conditioning will include relevant stretches and resistance training.
Evidence Based – We will choose treatment techniques that have the most chance of helping you. For example, if the muscles are rigid and not letting the body move through the full range of motion, then we will use appropriate myofascial release and joint mobilizations that have been shown to relax the muscles, and then we will make sure that you safely move through the full range of movement to help your nervous system adapt and integrate the improved function.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual treatment of moving, massaging and stretching the soft tissues, muscles and joints of the body.
With a focus on total body health, the aim is to detect where health issues are located and release the tension built up in the area leading to improved overall health and well-being.
My osteopathic therapy clinic in Toronto takes an exacting, custom approach to healing, narrowing in on your specific physical, energetic and emotional symptoms.

Cranial Osteopathy for Concussion Symptoms
Concussions can cause a broad range of symptoms that may appear immediately after a trauma or delayed.
Symptoms such as headaches, blurred vision, dizziness or seeing stars, nausea, temporary loss of consciousness, ringing in the ears can be the result of impacts, head trauma and/or whiplash.
Sometimes concussion symptoms resolve on their own but pain and discomfort can also remain for periods of weeks or longer.
Gentle osteopathic treatment can be helpful in recovering from vertigo, restoring the sense of balance and improving mobility. The treatments are aimed at immediate reduction of symptoms, and we will also help you establish home care plan to improve your physical, cognitive and emotional well-being.
