Happy World Osteopathy Day Everyone!
Today; June 22nd is the official World Osteopathy Day since it was established 3 years ago. This is the day Osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Dr Andrew Taylor Still.
Canadian manual osteopath, Dr Shahin Pourgol, president of the National Academy of Osteopathy & the National University of Medical Sciences has founded this day in 2012 as a way to increase public awareness of manual osteopathy. Prior to 2012 osteopathy did not have a day of its own.
In 2013 the Canada Post, as per our request published a mailing stamp with the World Osteopathy Day logo.
To celebrate this date in 2015 we have offered over one million Euros in free seminars to 5000 health professionals worldwide.
Manual osteopathy does wonders for chronic musculoskeletal pain and is the number one choice of Canadians for chronic low back pain treatment. And the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce has chosen manual osteopathy as one of the top 25 occupations in demand in Canada. In some Canadian cities there is a waiting list of up to a year to see a manual osteopath.
To make manual osteopathy available to people worldwide we teach it in 45 countries. Our mission is to make manual osteopathy available to everyone in all countries.
We wish you all a Happy World Osteopathy Day!
