Manual Osteopaths Can Offer Physiotherapy Modalities in Canada


Manual osteopaths who wish to offer physiotherapy modalities such as ultrasound, laser, TENS, IFC, EMS, thermotherapy, cryotherapy, traction, & iontophoresis to patients are permitted to do in Canada once they take the appropriate courses.
The DO (doctor of osteopathy) program of National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) and the PhD program in osteopathic clinical sciences of the National University of Medical Sciences (USA) both offer physiotherapy modalities courses which enable manual osteopaths to offer physiotherapy modalities to patients.
Please note that while you are permitted to perform physiotherapy modalities after taking the appropriate courses, you CANNOT call yourself a physiotherapist and you CANNOT call what you do physiotherapy.
National Academy of Osteopathy graduates of the DOMP program receive scholarships to enrol at NUMSS (Spain) DO program for a total tuition of just 2,000 EUROS, a saving of over 5,000 EURO. A large number of NAO graduates continue their osteopathic education by enrolling at the DO program of NUMSS (Spain).
