NUMSS Professor Teaches at NAO

NUMSS Professor Joins NAO

National Academy of Osteopathy is glad to announce that Professor Amir Ghafari who teaches physiotherapy modalities and decompression traction therapy at National University of Medical Sciences has joined NAO team as well.

Professor Ghafari, a prominent physiotherapist in Iran, and the past president of one of the provincial physiotherapy associations in Mashhad (Iran), is also an osteopathic manual practitioner of NAO who graduated in 2011 and since then operates a private osteopathic clinic in Toronto as well as teaching part time.

We were quite impressed with Professor Ghafari’s clinical accomplishments in Toronto. He has a reputation for treating hard clinical cases. He receives many referrals from medical doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors and massage therapists for patients who had a number of treatments with no success. His area of specialty is neurological conditions and strokes. And many patients see him as the last result and are impressed by how quickly they respond to the osteopathic care. In one example wife of one of our staff saw him for a Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) condition that never responded to any treatments, and made eating painful. Surgery was her only remaining option. After getting osteopathic treatment from Professor Ghafari in one session, she has been pain free for 6 months.

We are honoured to have such high calibre clinicians as part of our team.
