Manual Osteopathic Therapy

Ryan Staal

I have always lived an active lifestyle of playing sports, mostly hockey and soccer. Every injury I experienced gave me a better understanding of the importance of actively participating in my recovery. I always found a way to restore my body to a happy level of function and fitness through proper education on healing and a good rehab program. That education and rehab would not have been possible without the help from the health professionals that got me back on track. These professionals were huge inspirations to my start as a personal trainer and eventually completing my osteopathic education.

My approach to providing osteopathic care focuses on treating the whole person rather than just their symptoms. Considering a person’s physical, mental, and spiritual health is crucial to addressing the root cause of a patient’s health concerns. Our goal during treatment is to activate the natural pain-calming strategies to allow better movement within the body. With better movement, we can then teach how safe and capable our bodies are.

Treatment is more than manual techniques. Learning about your situation and addressing lifestyle factors helps to develop a personalized treatment plan that takes care of your unique needs and goals.

I am always striving to stay up-to-date with the latest advances in osteopathic care to provide my patients with the highest level of care.

Delivering compassionate, patient-centred care to achieve their best health and wellness is my ambition.
