Human Sacrum, a Poem by NAO Student Monday, October 19, 2015

A beautiful poem by National Academy of Osteopathy student, Dr Chris Vincent, MBBS (October 19, 2015, Toronto, Canada). Dr Vincent aside from being a physician is also a distinguished artist.

Human Sacrum
A Poem

Cobra Head.
A hockey helmet grill.
The sacred shield of the pelvis,
dressed up in a costume
with a gleaming cape
of lumbosacral fascia
and rabbit ears
of erector spinae.

An eight-eyed moth
beating its ilium wings,
moving and still at the same time.
Rami of sacral nerves
enter the foramina
like salmon
swimming upstream.

A large strong bone
shaped
like an inverted triangle
tearing the body into two lower limbs.
A shiny rock dividing a flowing river.
The keystone
of the pelvic girdle
infused with healing energy
from the touch of
the osteopath.

A bone rocket
blasting off into space,
towards the dome of the diaphragm
spewing thick opaque smoke
of ligaments and tendons
billowing in all directions.

The vertebral hat wearing Mayor
of pelvis-town,
playing pied-piper to the spinal bones,
leading them south
away from the skull,
with loud music
blasting
from his coccyx-trumpet,
as he performed a dance
of nutation and counternutation.

Blurred image of a regal lion
with a flowing mane of iliacus,
piriformis and gluteus maximus,
sets the backdrop
of the Klondike stampede,
as muscles and vessels
rush between the moist terrain
of hollow cavities, organs
and visceral folds
individually
and in groups
to reach the lower abdomen
in search of gold:
the invisible center of gravity,
elusive
as a Tasmanian tiger.

Time stands still
as the past, present and future
exist together in harmony
inside the hollow
of the sacral canal,
becoming a tangled rope of possibilities
expressed in silence
via the hiatus.

A wild-boar
with sacral ala ears
and jagged jaw of sacral cornua
projecting bilaterally,
grunts angrily
and snuffs out the imaginary flame
at the apex
bringing the bone to its end point
abruptly.

A photograph
of a snow owl
taken in a hurry
as it slowly head-banged
to the song,
“I wanna be yours”
by Arctic Monkeys.
Then put in a picture frame
between sacroiliac joints.
A curved bone
adorned with corn rows,
composed of median,
intermediate and lateral sacral crests.
Galen’s strong bone.
Sacred bone.
Sacrum.

Osteopathy Poem by NAO Student Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Since the beginning of the osteopathy profession there were only two poems published, the last one by National Academy of Osteopathy president, Dr Shahin Pourgol.

Now the third osteopathy poems, by NAO student of the manual osteopathy program, Dr Chris Vincent, MD was published today, making it the first osteopathic technique related poem.

This poem is about a side posture technique that was recently taught in the technique class of NAO in Toronto located at the York University Heights campus.

Dr Vincent is an artist. His osteopathy related paintings will be available in 2016.



Lateral Recumbent Lumbar Mobilization, Posterior to Anterior with Contact on TVP with Knee Bent


A Poem
Lola lay supine
on the forest-green table.
A delicate dandelion
lying on a patch of grass.
Sunlight filtered through
the skylight above
bathing the osteopathic
manual therapy room
with a bright glow
of hope and possibility.
Dante positioned himself
by the side of the table,
his personal battle-field.
He prepares for the fight
against pain
and restricted movements,
lingering
between muscles and joints.


For a fleeting moment,
patient and the therapist speak
with words of silence.
Then Lola points to her lower back
with red, painted nails.
Her delicate features
crumpled into anxious lines
on her beautiful face.
Dante nodded
and spoke in a soothing tone
as he directed her to lie on her side
facing him.
He bends her knee
to and angle of 90 degree
and supported it against his strong thigh.
Then he leaned over
and locked her shoulder.


Thick blue clouds
hovering over misty mountain peaks.
He leaned over
Casting a shadow:
a deep valley across the table.
Like gathering rain clouds
over the garden.
A sleek cat climbing
across a window sill
and stretching its torso
to clear the edge.


He places the heel of his palm
over her lumbar region.
Skin on skin.
The human touch: a kiss to the senses.
Muscles roll like clay
as Dante takes his turn
meticulously exerting precise pressure
on her transverse processes.
All the while his elbows pointed out
parallel to the table.
Lola arches her back forward
caught under the spell
of the osteopathic technique.
A lithe bow curving against
the strength of a sharp arrow.


A painless click is followed
by a silent pop.
Pain had left the body
like a ghost.
Lola felt a sense of comfort
washing over her.
Dante reversed his posture
and stood up tall
by her side
shining in the light.
She thanked him
with words
that fluttered like leaves
floating from trees,
in the Fall.

Letters Like This Makes Us So Happy! Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Letters like this makes us so Happy! Below is what one of our manual osteopathy students in Ontario wrote.

“4 years ago I went through a rather wild knee injury and was told that I would most likely spend the rest of my life walking with a cane. It has taken an enormous amount of hard work, self-discipline and diligence to claw my way back on top and to have proven those words to be false...

I recently decided to enrol back in school in pursuit of a career that will allow me to help others recover through devastating injuries...

I am now in my 2nd week at the National Academy of Osteopathy and could not be more ecstatic about the changes that are already happening around me!

Thank you Dr. Shahin Pourgol for allowing this new step in my life to be possible!

Dream Big, Take Action, Be Self-Motivated!”

Massage therapists interested to study in-campus can attend the York University Heights campus of NAO in Toronto. Optional practical technique classes (for online students) are provided in Toronto and elsewhere.

NAO has graduated many manual osteopaths in Canada in the past 4 years. Over half of the manual osteopaths in Canada are our alumni. Our alumni are permitted to work in all Canadian provinces, American states, and all European, African & Asian countries (In Canada & USA our graduates must call themselves manual osteopaths or osteopathic manual practitioners as the term osteopath is reserved for American style osteopathic physicians who also do surgery and prescribe medications).
NAO is an accredited manual osteopathy college, teaching in 54 countries, that is accepted by many associations, such as Ontario Osteopathic & Alternative Medicine Association (that is accepted by most insurers), College of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners of Ontario, Asociation des ostéopathes Regroupement des Intervenants et Thérapeutes en Médecine Alternative, Ontario Association of Osteopathy & Alternative Medicine, Alliance Canadienne de Médecine Alternative , British Columbia College of Osteopathic Rehabilitation Sciences, Collège des Ostéopathes Canadiens, Canadian Manual Osteopathy Examining Board, International Osteopathy Examining Board, International Osteopathic Association, Society of Osteopaths of Canada, Tribal Health Care Administration & Licensing of the North Carolina Nottaway Tribal Community, Ontario Association of Osteopathic Practitioners, Ontario Chamber of Commerce, & Alberta College of Osteopathic Rehabilitation Sciences amongst others.

Our students are also eligible for full scholarships from the Metis Nation of Ontario and the WorkBC program of the Canadian government. $4000 in scholarship is also offered under Youth Employment Program.

We are registered with the Ministry of Employment & Social Development of Canada. As a result the Revenue Canada would give up to $5000 in tuition and text book credit to Canadian students. Our tuition is also tax deductible as a business expense.

Manual osteopathy is one of the top 25 professions in Canada as reported by the CIBC. There is zero unemployment in this profession. Average income is $90,000/yr. It is also the highest paid health profession high school graduates can enter directly without any university or college prerequisites.
A 2012 survey indicates that manual osteopathy is the #1 choice of Canadians for low back pain relief as compared to physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture and medication.
Here are letters from two massage therapists who have completed the Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice program of NAO.

" Good evening Dr. Pourgol. I hope all is well with you these days. I see you are making great strides in the Osteopathic world! Congratulations to you and your support team…………….I have been very busy this past year growing my business, lately being booked weeks in advance. The osteopathy component to my practice is definitely what has stimulated the growth in the past year, almost doubling my income in one year! This has happened without advertising, simply by word of mouth, client referrals! And I can honestly say that working with others and helping them cope or relieve their pain is one of the most rewarding jobs I can imagine having. "
Angele Boyle, RMT, DOMP
NAO graduate, class of 2011

Dear NAO
I want to say thank you for a fantastic course. I have loved every minute of it and now looking forward to doing my Bachelor in osteopathy. I have worked as a massage therapist for 6 years and I love my job but I felt more and more I was missing something in the treatments and I wanted to do more. The NAO ad popped up as I searched the net for courses and I am so grateful it did.
Osteopathy is a fantastic profession, gentle but very effective. It is a perfect match to massage therapy and the two makes the perfect couple. I love my job and look forward to going to work every day. I feel so privileged to be able to do this every day. Being able to help people live pain free lives is so rewarding and a true inspiration every single day.
Dr Pourgol have been such an inspiration and I have learned so much that will absolute make me a better therapist and better in business . Dr Habibinia is a fantastic teacher and I have looked forward to his lectures every day and thanks to Luary who has helped me so much and been so patient. I am looking forward to seeing you all in June so I can thank you all in person. Looking forward to another year with you and become the absolute best I can be Thank you.

Osteopathy Business Tip # 37 - Energize Your Brain Thursday, July 9, 2015

You need to unplug your brain once in a while. This would reset your brain and has a number benefits such as increasing your creativity which helps you become more successful in whatever you do.

A sure way to energizing your brain is having regular silence retreats. I usually take a weekend off to be by myself surrounded by nature, trees and water, sun & the moon, wind & the birds, with no one to talk to, no TV, no music, no radio, no internet, no mobile and no people.

The silence has amazing healing power. It allows you to tap into your inner self where your conscious awaits you. When there is no noise, your inner self speaks with you. What you hear is priceless wisdom.

If you want to become more creative and if you want to improve your brain power, then spend a couple of days by yourself every month surrounded by nature with no people contact of any sort.

I was in a silence retreat last week and took these photos there. You become one with nature, when you are alone with it. Where else you can find a red moon, beautiful red sunrise, & sparkling water?

Testimonial from a Yoga Teacher Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Testimonial from a Yoga Teacher:

Dear Dr.Pourgol,

Greeting to you!
First of All ,My humble gratitude to you and the team for providing me with an informative online course which I was looking forward for as a Yoga therapist. I thought it is equally important for a profession of my kind to be informed on the anatomical aspect of Human Body in a fairly detailed manner, to be able to make a good alternative medicine health professional and therefore chose to join this course
I have thoroughly enjoyed the lectures sessions particularly all of yours and Dr.Habibinia's on Nutrition. They have been very informative and helping my family, students and myself in maintaining a reasonably good health.

Wishing you a great day.

Warm regards

100 Years Old Patient Tuesday, June 23, 2015

NAO Graduate Treats 100 Years Old Patient

A letter from National Academy of Osteopathy graduate Jay David:

Hi Dr. Pourgol,

Just to drop you a note hello. The resilience of the human body still seizes to amaze me after practicing manual osteopathy now for several years. I registered my very first 100 year old patient this weekend. Superseding another current female elderly patient who is 90 years old.

Mrs. Dela Cruz was born in November 30, 1914. She was brought to the clinic by her daughters hoping that I would be able to assist and perhaps relieve her of pains stemming from an arthritic shoulder joint. Mrs. Dela Cruz very calmly and quietly allowed me to complete the shoulder techniques, often giving me a slight glimpse of attention with her nearly perfect vision (she doesn't use reading glasses). At the end of the treatment, she softly but sternly said two words "feels good" - music to a manual osteopaths' ears.

Hope you are keeping well.

Best regards,

Jay

Massage Therapists love manual osteopathy! Sunday, February 8, 2015

20% of National Academy of Osteopathy graduating class in Toronto, Canada in this term (Feb 2015) were massage therapists.

Manual osteopaths are in high demand in Canada. In some cities such as London (Ontario, Canada) there is a waiting list of over a year to see a manual osteopath. This is mainly due to the success of manual osteopaths in treating chronic pain of musculoskeletal origin.

Another benefit for massage therapists (in Canada only) to become manual osteopaths is that their patients will have access to more treatments as their extended health plan insurers also cover manual osteopathic care. So when the massage therapy benefit runs out, patients can use manual osteopathic benefit under their insurance plan to receive more treatments if necessary.

In the photos below you see six NAO graduates at the York University Heights campus of NAO in Toronto, Canada who are also massage therapists. They include; Christine Clair Low, Pamela Lee Crosson Fournier, Xiuling Tan, Eric Chan & Kim Wai Chu.

Did you know over half of the manual osteopaths in Canada are National Academy of Osteopathy graduates? NAO teaches manual osteopathy in 45 countries.

Why Chiropractors Study Manual Osteopathy? Sunday, February 8, 2015

Manual osteopathy is very popular amongst chiropractic students. Here are three chiropractic students who have graduated from the Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice program (D.O.M.P.) of National Academy of Osteopathy. They attended the graduation ceremony on February 06, 2015 held at the York University Heights campus of NAO.

Manual osteopaths are in high demand in Canada. In some cities such as London (Ontario, Canada) there is a waiting list of over a year to see a manual osteopath. By becoming a manual osteopath, chiropractors receive more referrals from family physicians and receive more word of mouth referrals, the result being a completely booked up clinic.

Another benefit for chiropractors to become manual osteopaths is that their patients will have access to more treatments as their extended health plan insurers also cover manual osteopathic care. So when the chiropractic benefit runs out, patients can use manual osteopathic benefit under their insurance plan to receive more treatments if necessary.

The chiropractic student/massage therapist/manual osteopath in this photo is Marcus Rigoberto Martines (from Life Chiropractic College West), Medical doctor/chiropractic students/manual osteopath, Dr Deepak Pal (from D�Youville College of Chiropractic), and chiropractic student/manual osteopath Elissa Gustafson (from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College).

Did you know over half of the manual osteopaths in Canada are National Academy of Osteopathy graduates? To enquire about how you can become a manual osteopath please send us an email to admissions@nationalacademyofosteopathy.com so we could send you the information package.

Thank you.

Why National Academy of Osteopathy is so popular?

The main reason we became so popular & the largest manual osteopathic college in the world is that we graduate successful manual osteopaths.

While NAO teaches more techniques than any other college (we teach 3 techniques per day) the reason for our graduates success is that we train them on all aspects of clinic management including marketing, advertising, public relations, accounting, tax planning, wealth creation, asset protection, goals setting, & improving creativity.

Our graduates learn how to attract new patients and retain the current ones. They learn how to help their patients utilize more of their services. Our �setting up a million dollar practice� lectures are legendary.

Registered massage therapist & manual osteopath Angele Boyle, doubled her income within a year after graduating from National Academy of Osteopathy. Patients now have to wait for weeks to get an appointment with her. Here is the testimonial she gave us:

���. I have been very busy this past year growing my business, lately being booked weeks in advance. The osteopathy component to my practice is definitely what has stimulated the growth in past year, almost doubling my income in one year! This happened without advertising, simply by word of mouth client referrals����� Angele Boyle, RMT, DOMP

NAO teaches more techniques than any other school, including cranial osteopathy, visceral manipulation, strain/counterstrain, osteoarticular, oscillatory, myofascial release technique, soft tissue therapy, & muscle energy techniques. Students also learn sports & clinical nutrition & therapeutic joint specific exercises as well as orthopedic techniques.

Dr Habibinia is another instructor, who is a world famous sports medicine specialist & has written numerous books. He has been the team doctor for a number of national Olympic teams. All our professors are health professionals with years of clinical experience, including manual osteopaths, medical doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists & physiotherapists.

But the main reason we graduate successful manual osteopaths is that we train students on all aspects of clinic management including marketing, advertising, public relations, accounting, tax planning, wealth creation, asset protection, goals setting, & improving creativity.

We are glad to announce that for the first time since 94 years ago another osteopathy related poem has been published, this time by National Academy of Osteopathy president, manual osteopath, Dr Shahin Pourgol. The poem is called "To My Osteopath" and was written on November 21, 2014.

In the history of osteopathy in the past 137 years there were only two osteopathy poems ever published, the first in the USA in 1920 and the second one yesterday in Canada.

Here is the osteopathy poem:

To My Osteopath:
I want to tell you something
Which you must have heard before
Your hands, your techniques, what you do
The kind of healing you do
Makes your patients to thank you
How you deal with chronic pain
How you eliminate acute pain
Osteopathy is a miracle, day in day out
May you receive all wishes in life
May you achieve all dream you have
My best wishes are with you
My healer, my osteopath

Manual Osteopathy Research on Pulmonary Diseases Monday, November 17, 2014

Did you know research has shown osteopathic manual treatment (OMT) to be effective in improving lung function after surgery, that OMT helps treat pneumonia, decreases antibiotic use, respiratory failure & therefore decreases death, that it improves breathing in asthma patients, that it prevents lung infection, and that it improves lung function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease?

Below you find a list of scientific research demonstrating effectiveness of manual osteopathy on lung diseases.

Sleszynski SL & Kelso AF (JAOA, 1993) showed that OMT is as effective as or better than incentive spirometry (deep-breathing exercises) to improve lung function after surgery.

Noll DR et al (JAOA, 1999; JAOA, 2000; Altern Ther Health Med, 2004; JAOA 2008 and Osteopath Med Prim Care, 2010) proved through a series of studies that OMT helps treat pneumonia. OMT decreases antibiotic use, length of stay in the hospital, respiratory failure and death. OMT can also alter lung function in COPD.

Bockenhauer SE et al (JAOA, 2002) showed improved breathing in asthma patients who received OMT.

Guiney PA et al (JAOA, 2005) performed a randomized controlled trial that demonstrated OMT improves breathing in children with asthma.

Henderson AT et al (JAOA, 2010) showed that treating ribs with OMT altered intensity of the nervous input to the lungs.

Saggio G et al (JAOA, 2011) used OMT to increase IgA levels, potentially helping prevent upper respiratory infections.

Zanotti E et al (Complement Ther Med, 2012) used OMT and a pulmonary rehabilitation program to improve exercise capacity and lung function in patients with COPD.

National Academy of Osteopathy teaches a Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice (DOMP) program in 45 countries. NAO is the largest provider of manual osteopathic education in the world, and the only manual osteopathic college to be accepted as an affiliate member of Ontario Hospital Association.

Our Canadian students are eligible for full scholarships by the WorkBC program of Canadian government if they are unemployed in British Columbia and fit the eligibility criteria.

Those students who are Metis, are eligible to receive full scholarship to study at NAO by the Metis Nation of Ontario.

Unemployed Canadian youth between the ages of 18 to 22 are eligible to receive $4000 scholarship under the Youth Employment Program to study at NAO.

NAO manual osteopathy graduates in Canada can now join the 2nd oldest osteopathy association in Canada (Ontario Osteopathic & Alternative Medicine Association) which is accepted by most insurers.

Did you know research has proven osteopathic manual therapy (OMT) effective for improving blood flow, lowering blood pressure, cardiac function after heart bypass surgery, preventing blood vessel thickening, controlling hemodynamic during pregnancy, & reducing inflammation?

Below is a list of scientific research indicating the effectiveness of manual osteopathy for health & blood vessels diseases.

Karason AB & Drysdale IP (J Manipulative Physiol Ther, 2003) improved blood flow to the limbs by using OMT.

Spiegel AJ et al (Heart Dis, 2003) did a review that showed OMT can help treat high blood pressure.

O-Yurvati AH et al (JAOA, 2005) demonstrated that OMT improves cardiac function and perfusion of blood after CABG (heart bypass).

Cerritelli F et al (J Bodyw Mov Ther, 2011) showed that OMT improves high blood pressure and can prevent blood vessel thickening.

Giles PD et al (J Altern Complement Med, 2013) used OMT to enhance heart rate variability.

Hensel KL et al (Complement Ther Med, 2013) showed that OMT can improve hemodynamic control in pregnancy.

Noll DR (JAOA, 2013) demonstrated that OMT reduced platelet counts (markers of acute inflammation) in elderly patients.

Wieting JM et al (JAOA, 2013) performed a randomized controlled study to show improved functional recovery by using OMT after CABG.

National Academy of Osteopathy (NAO) teaches a Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice (DOMP) program in 45 countries. NAO is the largest provider of manual osteopathic education in the world, and the only osteopathic college to be accepted as an affiliate member of Ontario Hospital Association.

A Review of NAO by an Unknown Graduate Monday, October 20, 2014

A graduate of National Academy of Osteopathy posted this review. We do not know who he/she is however.

We are thankful for the NAO graduate to take the time to review our school. It is much appreciated. We want to add that we now teach visceral manipulation, cranial osteopathy, myofascial release technique, strain/counterstrain, and also increased teaching on osteopathic diagnosis, static and motion joint play amongst others.

And this is the first time we see that a student was not happy with Dr Habibinia's lectures as he is one of our most popular professors and everyone loves his lectures!

This is the edited version of the post, as most of the schools & association names have been deleted. Deletion is marked as "..............................."

I've wanted to review the NAO (National Academy of Osteopathy) for some time. I am a graduate of the DOMP (Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice) program, and will be as honest as I can. I did my research when choosing a school. I talked to NAO grads, ................................................................................, as well as students within the programs.

I had considered factors such as length of program, reputation of program, cost, and associations available to grads. What I found is the ................................................................., and they too require a $2000 registration fee for their association, in addition to the $9000/year (4 or 5 years). The reputation in the field is quite positive............................................................ Talking to some students, the concerns mentioned include too much focus on theory, a push around what were described as "moral" philosophies, and a high turn over of profs.

.................................................................................................................................................................... ....................................................................................................................................................................

Then came NAO. I did the same as the other.......... schools. I received a treatment by one of the grads and asked general questions about osteopathy and the course. All were satisfactory. Actually the practitioner was very good and praised the program.

I decided on NAO. I felt at $6000 and a 9 month commitment I couldn't go wrong. The program itself was good. It was well laid out and organized. I really enjoyed the online demonstrations or video instructions. Dr. Pourgol was positive and energetic. He really does have a passion about osteopathy profession, and increasing the profile/ awareness of Osteopathy. Amir Kazemi has great technique, but I found him adequate as a teacher. Dr. Habibinia was the only one I really was disappointed in.. I felt he wasn't knowledgeable. I am sure he is, however I just didn't get engaged during his lectures at all.

I wish there was a Visceral Osteopathy component (which I understand is now part of the curriculum), and more emphasis on sacral and cranial osteopathy, and myofascial release techniques. I did find the course very ORTHOPEDIC based and Chiro geared with the techniques. These were all very well taught and effective in practice. I felt there could have been an introduction to soft skills, soft palpation, an appreciation for the "feel" of the body. Again, just my opinion.

There was absolutely NO pressure to do any of the so called "Board Exams". It had been suggested to take the exam, however I felt that $2000 was better allocated to join an Association.

ALSO, very few claims will be accepted by insurance companies if you are not part of an association. It DOES NOT matter what school you go to. Do your homework before hand. ..................................................................., and OOAMA (Ontario Osteopathic & Alternative Medicine Association) are in my opinion the best...............................................................

SUMMARY.. I am very pleased with my decision to attend NAO. At a fraction of the price you receive the same designation as other schools. I am a member of OOAMA and bill all insurance companies. I have only had issues with GWL (Great West Life), all other insurance companies so far have been great.

The program is what it is. I have a health care background and have been using craniaosacral, myofascial release and other techniques for years. I have taken the initiative to take other courses including modules .......................................... (highly recommended). Practice, Practice, Practice.

NAO has ruffled a lot of feathers. You will read and hear many negative comments because Dr. Pourgol challenged the way things have always been. However, NAO program has grown and appears to continue to grow since my time. I feel that is a huge positive. Remember the most dangerous phrase in the English language "We've always done it this way". That does not reflect NAO

As with anything else, no one cares where your piece of paper comes from. Approach osteopathy with empathy, respect, hard work. Your patients will sense this and refer everyone they know. More importantly, they will appreciate your skill set and your ability to help with whatever issue they come to you with.. Cheers

Dear NAO

I want to say thank you for a fantastic course. I have loved every minute of it and now looking forward to doing my Bachelor in osteopathy. I have worked as a massage therapist for 6 years and I love my job but I felt more and more I was missing something in the treatments and I wanted to do more. The NAO ad popped up as I searched the net for courses and I am so grateful it did.

Osteopathy is a fantastic profession, gentle but very effective. It is a perfect match to massage therapy and the two makes the perfect couple. I love my job and look forward to going to work every day. I feel so privileged to be able to do this every day. Being able to help people live pain free lives is so rewarding and a true inspiration every single day.

Dr Pourgol have been such an inspiration and I have learned so much that will absolute make me a better therapist and better in business . Dr Habibinia is a fantastic teacher and I have looked forward to his lectures every day and thanks to Luary who has helped me so much and been so patient. I am looking forward to seeing you all in June so I can thank you all in person. Looking forward to another year with you and become the absolute best I can be Thank you.

Chiropractor Testimonial Sunday, October 12, 2014

Chiropractor Testimonial

Did you know hundreds of chiropractors have studied manual osteopathy to stand out & elevate themselves above the competition and to offer better health care to their patients?

Manual osteopaths are in high demand across Canada. In London (Ontario) there is a waiting list of over a year to see one. In Halifax (Canada) it is over 6 months. In Vancouver most manual osteopaths do not accept new patients.

CHIROPRACTORS: you can become a manual osteopath in 6 months; online worldwide, or onsite at the York University Heights campus of National Academy of Osteopathy in Toronto, Canada.

Here is a testimonial from a chiropractor:

The course (DOMP program offered by National Academy of Osteopathy) was well organized and easy to follow. Studying at my own pace was excellent. The Practical was well taught and highly valuable. The expanded opportunities well be a good challenge. As a Chiropractor I find these procedures as effective with no possibility of after effects. More Chiropractors should get on board.

Osteopath Needed in Bobcaygeon August 21, 2013

Bobcaygeon-needs-osteopath The town of Bobcaygeon is a clean beautiful little town, 2 hours North East of Toronto, just north of Peterborough. It is a retirement community with majority of residents being senior citizens. The town has a massage therapist, naturopath, chiropractor and a few physicians.

The town contacted National Academy of Osteopathy asking us to inform our graduates about this town. They feel having an osteopathic manual practitioner in Bobcaygeon greatly benefits the senior citizens residing there. We also believe this to be a great opportunity for one of our graduates to move there. Rent is cheap and homes are a lot less expensive than Toronto. The air is fresh, beaches everywhere, and fine restaurants plenty in the area.

If you love water activities this is the perfect place for you as you are always just less than 5 minutes away from a beach.

We recommend you to visit this town and check it out for yourself.

New Employment Trend for Osteopaths August 01, 2013

osteopathy-for-personal-trainers With the popularity of osteopathy with patients and its ability to help athletes function better, National Academy of Osteopathy decided that osteopathy could be the right fit inside gyms across Canada and USA.
NAO approached a number of gyms to send their personal and fitness trainers to study manual osteopathy. This has become such a successful phenomenon that NAO is receiving many applications from personal trainers.
Soon most gyms in North America will have manual osteopaths/personal trainers on site for their members. This is another way NAO is expanding osteopathy. No other osteopathic college in history has ever done so much for osteopathy. NAO is the single most reason osteopathy is now offered worldwide to millions of patients.

A Different Type of Employment for Osteopaths August 01, 2013

Osteopathy-in-Greece A number of National Academy of Osteopathy graduates of the DOMP program who enjoy traveling, have found employment in the luxury Caribbean hotels & resorts as well as European spas to provide osteopathic soft tissue work for whole body relaxation. This is a new field in osteopathy. While osteopathy is used mostly to treat pain, a number of osteopaths are providing services for whole body relaxation and this is becoming very popular with clients.
This field has been created by National Academy of Osteopathy. This is one of the ideas taught to students by NAO professor Dr Pourgol in his “Creating a Million Dollar Practice” lecture series.

Osteopathy in South Korea May 09, 2013

NAO Seoul Osteopathic treatments are in high demand in South Korea. Patients seem to enjoy osteopathic treatments and it is a well established, well reimbursed type of treatment within the insurance system in South Korea.

Osteopaths in South Korea charge anywhere from $50 US (per hour) to $300 US (for serious cases requiring few hours of osteopathic rehabilitation) for osteopathic treatments which is paid by most private insurers in South Korea (such as Signa, Aetna, SOS Alliance, & Blue Shield).

South Korean public national health insurance pays for osteopathic treatments if done by a physiotherapist, Medical Doctor or an Oriental Medical Doctor. The payment rate by government varies depending on who provides the osteopathic treatment. It is the highest if the treatment is done by a medical doctor. The payment is $5 US per osteopathic treatment if done by a physiotherapist.

Osteopaths who are not a licensed health professionals can open a clinic in South Korea but are not permitted to provide treatments to South Korean citizens. They can however provide osteopathic treatments to foreigners. There are a number osteopaths there who only treat foreigners in Seoul as there is a large US military base near Seoul.

NAO Graduate Hired at $55 per hour in Toronto April 03, 2013

After congratulating the NAO graduate Mr S. Hussein for landing a job at a rehab clinic at $50 per hour in Richmond Hill (the 2nd NAO graduate to do so), we were just informed by another NAO graduate that he is receiving $55 per hour as a manual osteopath in Toronto, Ontario, canada. This is the highest salary we know of any of our graduates. If anyone is hired with a salary more than this please let us know.

We congratulate Mr F. Azevedo for becoming the NAO graduate with the highest salary & being the best paid NAO graduated manual osteopath.

This is just amazing. Making $55 per hour after 4 months of study is a great achievement. There simply is not another profession that offers such high rewards in such short time. It takes 7 years to become a chiropractor, 4 years to become a physiotherapist & 2 years to become a massage therapist. And their starting salary for a new graduate ranges from $20 to $40 per hour while manual osteopaths are hired at $30 per hour on average.

We are honoured to help people become productive members of the society. And we continue to provide you with unique, innovative & affordable osteopathic education.

NAO graduates successful manual osteopath!


NAO Graduate Hired at $50 per Hour April 03, 2013

Love-NAO

National Academy of Osteopathy wishes to congratulate NAO graduate, Mr S. Hussein for being hired as a manual osteopath by a rehabilitation clinic in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada at a salary of $50 per hour.

This is the second time an NAO graduate lands a job at $50 per hour. At the time when chiropractors in Toronto, with 7 years of education are hired at $30 to $40 per hour, or massage therapists with 2 years of education are hired at $20 to $25 per hour, being hired at $50 per hour after studying 4 months is quite an achievement.

Join NAO, become a manual osteopath & secure your future.

National Academy of Osteopathy Student Steps Up For United Way October 26, 2012


For the 32 years old National Academy of Osteopathy student Ryan Smith, climbing up the stairs of the CN Tower in Toronto (Canada) on Saturday was about more than just making it to the top. It was something he was dreaming to do for a long time and now he can check besting 1,776 stairs for the Enbridge CN Tower Climb for United Way off his list.

Ryan was one of the thousands who successfully made the trek over the weekend, a trip that usually takes 58 seconds by elevator for the more than a million who visit the top each year.

The event saw student and individual fundraisers contribute to the $2.5 million fundraising goal as part of the United Way Toronto’s biggest annual event, now in its 35th year.

“The money is all going back into the community,” said United Way Toronto vice president. “It funds a vital network of social services and community agencies.”

At the top of the tower, the mood was celebratory mixed with exhaustion. Participants clambered out of the stairwell, sweaty, red faced and at a loss for words.

“Climbing the CN Tower was one of the hardest things I ever did and I am proud of Ryan for doing this extreme athletic event and raising over $4000 for the United Way” Said Dr Pourgol, president of NAO.

The university has plans to offer many degree programs in the future but initially it is just offering three programs which are Doctor of Osteopathy - DO (4 years full time), bachelor of science in osteopathy – BSc (3 years full time) and master of business administration in health care – MBA (1 year full time). The programs could be taken independently or concurrently to obtain dual degrees.

The university starts accepting students for the September 2013 classes once it is operational in 2 months or so. Tuition is kept low at $2000 per semester to make the degree programs affordable to all students.

National Academy of Osteopathy will work closely with this university. NAO graduates will receive advance credits of up to two years for the studies they have done. And NAO is setting up a program that would enable our graduates to obtain an expedited degree from this university.

Ministry of Finance (Ontario, Canada) Proposal to License Personal Injury Health Providers October 12, 2012

The Interim Report on a Regulatory Model for Healthcare and Assessment Facilities in Ontario has been posted on the Ministry of Finance’s website since mid-July of 2012.

Currently in the province of Ontario anyone, without any qualification may open a rehabilitation clinic, and hire health professionals such as manual osteopaths, registered massage therapists, chiropractors and physiotherapists to run the facility and to provide treatments to patients injured in a motor vehicle accident (MVA). As these business owners are not licensed health professionals they are not bound by the codes of ethics of the appropriate health associations such as International Osteopathic Association (IOA) or the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO).

Proposed to be licensed are multidisciplinary treatment facilities, health professionals in solo practice such as chiropractors and osteopaths, assessment facilities and unregulated providers of medical and rehabilitation services, such as vocational rehabilitation, case management and home modifications.

This report suggests that the owner of the clinics providing services to MVA patients must be licensed health professionals such as manual osteopaths and that the license be issued by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO).







The Power of an Idea October 12, 2012

On June 22, 1874 Dr Andrew Taylor Still in Kansas, USA had an idea that he compared to feeling of being shot “not in the heart but in the dome of reason”. This idea brought osteopathy to him “like a burst of sunshine the whole truth dawned upon my mind and I flung to the breeze the banner of osteopathy”.

Because of one idea; there are now about 100,000 osteopaths globally who employ about 400,000 people and provide about 100 millions treatments per year. Millions of patients are relieved of pain, more than a million people are supported financially through osteopathy and the world in general is a better place thanks to the idea Dr Still had on that day, June 22, 1874, which now I registered as the World Osteopathy Day as a way to give my gratitude to his idea.

This is the power of an idea that started from just one man 138 years ago.
Thank you Dr Still. Thank you so much for your idea. And thank you for taking action to make your idea a reality. The world is grateful to you for your idea.

Dr. Shahin Pourgol







WORLD OSTEOPATHY DAY October 12, 2012

As a result of tireless work of Dr Shahin Pourgol for suggesting a World Osteopathy Day and collaboration between National Academy of Osteopathy, International Osteopathic Association, Canadian Manual Osteopathy Examining Board, and a number of other organizations, manual osteopaths, and osteopathy students, we are pleased to announce that June 22nd has been chosen and named “World Osteopathy Day”.


For over 130 years osteopathy has done so much to help human beings have a better quality of life and it deserve a day of its own as recognition of its contribution to human society worldwide.


At 10AM on June 22, 1874 in Baldwin, Kansas (USA), the 46 years old Dr Andrew Taylor Still founded osteopathy. Dr Shahin Pourgol recommended this day in oppose to Dr Still’s date of birth (August 06, 1828) as the World Osteopathy Day and his suggestion was accepted by the majority.


Dr Pourgol is bringing a private member bill to the Canadian parliament to request the government of Canada officially recognize June 22nd as the World Osteopathy Day.


International Osteopathic Association has committed to do the same with parliaments of a number of other countries in Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa.

आपको अस्थिचिकित्सा का अध्ययन क्यों करना चाहिए? October 4, 2012

अस्थिचिकित्सा स्वास्थ्य के देखभाल से सम्बंधित है. अन्य कोई भी व्यवसाय आप को यह खुशी नहीं देता है. लोगों को दर्द मुक्त करने के लिए मदद करना ही सबसे बेहतर एहसास है!

अस्थिचिकित्सा दुनिया में अत्यधिक तेजी से बढ़ रही एक व्यवसाय है.

अस्थिचिकित्सा पीठ के निचले हिस्से में दर्द के लिए रोगियों द्वारा पसंद किया गया (काइरिप्रैक्टिक चिकित्सा पद्धति, मालिश, भौतिक चिकित्सा, एक्यूपंक्चर और दवा की तुलना में) पहली पसंदीदा चिकित्सा है.

कई शोधों से पता लगता है की पीठ दर्द के लिए अस्थिचिकित्सा ही सबसे प्रभावी उपचार है.

अस्थिचिकित्सा उपचार नरम, दर्द मुक्त, सुरक्षित, सिद्ध और मांसपेशियों, हड्डियों, जोड़ों और नसों के विकार के उपचार में बहुत प्रभावी है.

इस व्यवसाय में बेरोजगारी शून्य होता है. सभी अस्थिचिकित्सकों को रोजगार अवश्य मिलता है.

अस्थिचिकित्सकों का औसत वार्षिक आय ९०,००० डॉलर है.

अस्थिचिकित्सकों का नियोजन पुनर्वसन क्लीनिकों, चिकित्सा केन्द्रों, स्वास्थ्य क्लबों, स्पा और अन्यों से प्रति घंटे ३० डॉलर से शुरू करते हुए किया जाता है.

नए अस्थिचिकित्सक अपने स्वयं के क्लीनिक को दुनिया में कनाडा, अमेरिका, यूरोप, एशिया, अफ्रीका और ऑस्ट्रेलिया सहित किसी भी हिस्से में खोल सकते हैं.

मरीजों को अस्थिचिकित्सा से सम्बंधित उपचार अछे लगते है. रिचमंड हिल, ओंटारियो (कनाडा) में एक अस्थिचिकित्सक से मिलने के लिए 2 महीने तक का इंतजार का वक़्त लगता है. ईरान में अस्थिचिकित्सक से मिलने के लिए ६ महीने तक इंतजार करना पड़ता है!

एक अस्थिचिकित्सक बनने के लिए ४ महीने का वक़्त लग जाता हैं (इसकी तुलना में काइरिप्रैक्टिक चिकित्सक बनने के लिए ७ साल, मालिश चिकित्सक बनने के लिए २ साल और भौतिक चिकित्सक बनने के लिए 6 साल लगते है) लेकिन इन सभी की आय एक समान ही है.

अस्थिचिकित्सा के राष्ट्रीय अकादमी में अध्ययन करें, एक अस्थिचिकित्सक बनें और अपना भविष्य सुरक्षित करें.

अस्थिचिकित्सा का राष्ट्रीय अकादमी दुनिया में सबसे बड़ा हस्तचालित या मनुअल अस्थिचिकित्सा कॉलेज है.

Для чего изучать остеопатию? October 2, 2012

 

Остеопатия – это область здравоохранения. Ни одна другая профессия не может доставить столько радости. Ведь ничего не может быть лучше, чем помогать людям и избавлять их от боли!

Остеопатия – одна из наиболее динамично растущих областей здравоохранения в мире.

Остеопатия была признана лучшим способом лечения болей в пояснице (в сравнении с хиропрактикой, акупунктурой и традиционным лечением).


Многочисленные исследования показывают, что остеопатия является наиболее эффективным способом лечения болей в спине.

Остеопатические методы лечения безболезненны, безопасны, проверены и эффективны против заболеваний мышц, костей, суставов и нервов.


В этой профессии не существует безработицы. Все врачи-остеопаты находят работу.

Средний ежегодный доход остеопатов составляет $90,000.

Специалисты по остеопатии востребованы в реабилитационных клиниках, медицинских центрах, клубах здоровья, спа и других учреждениях. Заработная плата таких специалистов составляет как минимум $30 в час.

Врачи-остеопаты могут открывать свои частные клиники практически по всему миру, включая Канаду, США, Европу, Азию, Африку и Австралию.


Пациенты все чаще выбирают остеопатию. Например, в Ричмонд-Хилл в Онтарию (Канада) очередь к остеопату составляет 2 месяца, а в Иране – люди ждут 6 месяцев!

Чтобы стать остеопатом достаточно 4 месяцев (в сравнении с 7 годами обучения хиропрактике, 2 годами обучения массажу и 6 годами физиотерапии), но доход этих специалистов одинаков.

Учеба в Национальной академии остеопатии поможет вам стать квалифицированным специалистом и обеспечить свое будущее.

L’ostéopathie est la profession qui se développe le plus à travers le monde.
L’ostéopathie est le traitement de choix des patients ayant des douleurs dorsales (par rapport à la chiropractie, le massage, la physiothérapie, l’acupuncture et la médecine traditionnelle).
De nombreuses recherches montrent que l’ostéopathie est le traitement le plus efficace contre les douleurs dorsales.
Les traitements ostéopathiques sont doux, sans douleur, sûrs, et leurs résultats ont été prouvés concernant les problèmes musculaires, des os, des nerfs et des tendons.

Les nouveaux ostéopathes peuvent monter leur propre clinique dans le monde entier : Canada, USA, Europe, Asie, Afrique, et Australie.
Il faut 4 mois pour devenir ostéopathe (alors qu’il en faut 7 pour devenir chiropracteur, 2 pour les thérapies de massage, et 6 pour la physiothérapie) mais le revenu est le même.

First Osteopathy Outreach Program Established in Cuba by NAO September 25, 2012

 

I am proud to announce establishment of the first osteopathy outreach program in Cuba by National Academy of Osteopathy (NAO).

Ms Luary Perez, the NAO registrar was very helpful in setting up this charity program in Cuba. There are not any manual osteopaths in Cuba and the health professionals there are not accustomed to osteopathy. World famous osteopath & president of NAO, Dr Shahin Pourgol was invited in September 18, 2012 to give a presentation in Havana introducing manual osteopathy to Cuban health practitioners. The seminar was also attended by directors of a number of polyclinics in Havana.

It has been decided that two manual osteopaths graduated from NAO be permitted to provide a month long free osteopathic treatments to Cubans in a polyclinic setting. This introduces the Cuban population to osteopathy while also providing an excellent training to new graduates.

Cuba has cultivated a large and resourceful network of health practitioners, which is made possible thanks to the well designed academic practices and the constant commitment of its top six medical universities to the improvement of healthcare professionals. The healthcare system in Cuba is made up of 60 different specialties.
Fifty one of these specialities are medical (including physiotherapy & natural medicine), with five dental, three nursing and one for psychology.

There are no private healthcare facilities in Cuba and all healthcare professionals are employees of the government.
This is the first time an osteopathy outreach program is established outside Canada by a Canadian osteopathy college.

National Academy of Osteopathy is the leader in providing innovative new ideas for the expansion of osteopathic profession internationally. NAO is the single most effective tool in expansion of osteopathy and we are proud to be able to bring pain relief through osteopathic treatments to the people of Cuba. We hope to expand our international manual osteopathy outreach program to other countries as well.

Osteopathy Found to be Patients’ #1 Choice for Pain Relief September 7, 2012

 

Dr. Lee Choi, MD, a manual osteopathy student of National Academy of Osteopathy has completed a research project as his thesis towards the investigative project requirement of course TH 980 of the diploma in manual osteopathy program.

Dr. Choi’s research analysed 100 patients’ response to low back pain treatments performed by manual osteopaths, registered massage therapists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, acupuncturists and physicians.

Patients who received manual osteopathy had the highest rate of satisfaction with their treatments, followed by chiropractic, massage therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture and medicine.

Over 95% of the patients surveyed who received osteopathic treatments indicated great satisfaction with their treatments, followed by 91% who received chiropractic treatments, 86% by those who received massage therapy, 75% by those who received physiotherapy, 60% by those who received acupuncture and 30% by those who received medical care for their low back pain.

This research confirms result of previous research indicating that patients favour manual osteopathy treatment above all other available treatments for low back pain of mechanical origin and that osteopathy is the number one health care system of choice for them whenever they suffer from low back pain.

NAO Graduate Testimonial August 10, 2012

 

........Just to give you an update. I was recently accepted to practice at a busy medical clinic (Sheridan Medical Associates) with 6 physicians on duty. I was interviewed by 4 of the 6 doctors for 30 minutes with questions ranging from osteopathic procedures to billing / insurance issues. I still cannot believe that I was accepted and I'm still really excited about it. The referrals are great and my patient list is growing. I'm also still quite amazed on how the techniques you have taught us are so effective and as a result my testimonials just keep on coming. It is truly such a gratifying feeling to make a difference in people's lives. Check out my site and I hope you like the small bio about you in the "about" page.......

Mr Ali Pourgol (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pIW0-DMXjo); was the most well known English teacher in the city of Rasht in Iran, having taught 1000s of students in his 48 years of teaching career. Some of his students are now students of NAO as well. He was a self made man; losing his mother right after birth and his fatehr 8 years later. He was raised by relatives in the village of Kharat Mahale near Rasht; and later in the village of Galeshkheh (Gilan).
He never stopped educating himself. Walked 4 hours daily to get to school. Was first from his village to get accepted to the biggest university in Iran (University of Tehran). Became a teacher; then principal. Opened the first translation bureau in the province of Gilan; followed by the largest private school in Rasht. He then authored numerous books. He was offered the position of mayor in Rasht which he declined. His love and passion was teaching which he continued to the end.

Thousands attended his funeral in Rasht and thousands of his students across the world have sent their condolences. He is buried right next to the legendary Mirza Kochak Khan Jangali in Rasht.

May there be comfort in knowing that someone so special will never be forgotten. Rasht will not be the same without him.

Osteopathic Treatment Found to Release Antistress Hormone December 14, 2011


Oxytocin is a hormone released by the hypothalamus during breastfeeding and bounding experiences, such as hugging, kissing and social engagement. It creates a wide range of physiological, emotional & behavioural effects.

Oxytocin is a critical antistress agent, able to reduce social fears and anxiety and inhibit the brain's defensive fight-flight response.

Researchers have found dramatic positive changes in veterans with severe post-traumatic stress disorder who increased production of Oxytocin by natural means.

Osteopathic soft tissue therapy is one of the natural ways that can increase production of Oxytocin in the body. Interestingly Oxytocin was found to make people more extrovert and social as well.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do"

Rest in Peace Jack Aug 23, 2011


Mr. Jack Layton; leader of the federal New Democratic Party (NDP) restored a measure of humanity to Canadian national politics. He will be missed.

My deepest condolences for his passing to his wife honorable Olivia Chow, member of parliament and the rest of his family. He made New Democratic Party the opposition federal party for the first time in Canadian history. This is amazing achievement and I think his personality was the main factor in this.

I admire people who achieve great results. He will forever be part of Canadian history. A life lived well. Farewell Jack.

Dr. Shahin Pourgol

Professor Shahin Pourgol Invited to Give Speech Aug 11, 2011

Professor Shahin Pourgol, alongside a number of other academicians, politicians, policy makers and businesspersons was invited to give a presentation in regards to the current economic crisis in the USA and Europe and how to prevent this in Canada.

Here is a short summary of what Professor Pourgol spoke about:

Canada was originally an ideal location for manufacturing goods as the raw materials were in great supply. The nation flourished, with an economy based on manufacturing.

After the end of the cold war; certain type of economic liberty was born in China. China’s economy was mainly based on farming. Due to correct economic decisions they got involved in manufacturing. Due to cheap labour; and some political manoeuvring in keeping their currency law; they made great fortunes. They did another smart decision. They lent this new found fortune to first world countries and in turn their received duty free, tax free export of their products. This made them the richest country in the world.

It is now impossible for Canada to compete with China in manufacturing. That is why most manufacturing jobs died down in Canada.

To remedy this Canada invested in information technology (IT). This was good as we became one of the best in the world. Unfortunately due to advancement of internet based technologies such as Voice Over Internet Protocols (VOIP); as well as cheap labour and their ability to speak English, India now surpassed us in IT. Most IT jobs are going to India.

I personally feel, the way for Canada to survive and prosper and keep the current level of high quality life is to invest in service based industries. I believe the future rests in service based small businesses. These are positions such as osteopaths, chiropractors, painters, plumbers, carpenters, physicians, dry cleaners, etc that cannot be outsourced to India. These positions will always be safe.

I also believe there should be a heavy tax levied on Canadian import products. This would force consumers to buy Canadian.

My last advice is for banks not to give mortgage to just anyone with a job who is interested in buying a house. Buying a house with 5% or less down payment is just not a good investment. People have to invest at least 25% in their homes. This alone would have prevented the house meltdown of the USA.

The above was the summary of Professor Pourgol's presentation. Professor Pourgol personally believes becoming a manual osteopath is the best thing individuals can do to secure their future. This is a skilled based profession that can be applied anywhere in the world. No matter where one practices osteopathy, there is always a demand. In Canada there is a one to two months waiting list to see an osteopath. In Iran the waiting list is six months!

Letter from Hon. Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario July 26, 2011


Dear Shahin,

Ontarians have always been builders, hard workers and focused on the future -- it's how we face our challenges.

Our most recent hurdle was the global recession. We got through it our way - The Ontario Way: with hard work and by building together. It wasn't easy, but today our province is back on track.

We're not going to slow down now. That's just not our way.

This past weekend, in a major public address, I outlined the six challenges Ontarians need to face head-on in the coming years. But to succeed we must do it together.

Ontario Liberals are different. We're not just out to win the coming election -- we're out to win the future for Ontario. Every day we're working hard to make Ontario stronger. We believe that if we face our challenges together, we will build a brighter future, together.

Please pass this letter on, and let people know that we are doing our part to build the Ontario you want for you, your children, and grandchildren.

Hon. Dalton McGuinty, MPP

Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party

Premier of Ontario

Study Finds Soft Tissue Therapy Best Choice for Chronic Back Pain July 6, 2011


A new study finds that patients with chronic low back pain who got a one-hour soft tissue therapy once a week, for 10 weeks, fared better than those receiving the usual medications for the nagging condition.

The research involved about 400 patients aged 20 to 65 with chronic lower back pain.

Daniel Cherkin of the Group Health Research Institute in Seattle, USA headed the research. Dr. Andrea Furlan of the Institute for Work & Health in Toronto says the findings are important, because if people with chronic low back pain can feel better quicker, they might be able to resume regular activities of daily life sooner.

The study is published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

“Soft tissue therapy is one of the most important techniques manual osteopaths use to treat neuromusculoskeletal & joints conditions and it is taught in detail at National Academy of Osteopathy. In fact NAO teaches more soft tissue therapy techniques than any other osteopathy college in Canada”; says Dr. Abazar Habibinia, MD; chair of the department of clinical sciences at National Academy of Osteopathy.
