Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy, discovered by Dr. A.T. Still in 1874. Osteopathic manual practitioners understand that the body functions as a unit, is capable of self-healing and self-regulation, and that the body’s ability to function is based upon its structural integrity.

Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy, discovered by Dr. A.T. Still in 1874. Osteopathic manual practitioners understand that the body functions as a unit, is capable of self-healing and self-regulation, and that the body’s ability to function is based upon its structural integrity. Through gentle manipulation, practitioners aim to restore movement where it has been lost and improve the quality of arterial, venous, nervous and lymphatic flow. By removing obstructions to this flow, the body demonstrates an amazing ability to heal.

Physiotherapy can look different for everyone, depending on your injury and goals. The following are different techniques that may be used as part of your treatment plan.

Manual therapy: Your treatment will often include some form of hands-on manual therapy. Depending on your goals, specific techniques will be chosen to improve mobility, decrease pain, and get you back to your desired activity. Techniques used may consist of joint and nerve mobilization, myofascial and active release, traction, and manipulation.

Exercises Perspiration: Exercise has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to recover from an injury, decrease pain, and improve activity tolerance. Based on your assessment, an individualized exercise program will be created for you. Some exercises may be performed in clinic, others will be sent with you for homework. At STG Health and Wellness we have access to many exercise machines that allow for safe, effective loading of injured tissues to help you recover as quickly as possible.

Taping: Tape can be used to offload injured tissues, increase joint stability, and enforce new movement patterns. It can also be used to protect recovering tissues in the transition back to sports and more demanding activities

Pre and Post op Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy before surgery can help ensure your recovery post surgery is as quick and complete as possible. Post surgery, physiotherapy is often a key component of effective rehabilitation, getting you back to your normal routine safely and efficiently.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture originates in traditional Chinese medicine and it involves inserting thin needles into specific points to stimulate your body’s natural healing process. Acupuncture may be used in your physiotherapy treatment session as a compliment to the other techniques used.

Vestibular Rehabilitation: Vertigo can have a hugely negative effect on your ability to function on a day-to-day basis. Based on assessment findings at your first visit, vestibular rehabilitation can effectively treat vertigo. The most common sources of vertigo can be eliminated in as little as one or two treatments.
Dizziness and feelings of being unbalanced are also common symptoms connected to concussions, post-concussion syndrome, and neck injuries (as well as many other conditions). The vestibular system often plays a role in these symptoms and specific exercises and manual techniques can be used to help alleviate them.

I am a Registered Dietitian and Integrative Nutritionist. For over 20 years, I have worked in the nutrition and supplement industry. I studied Human Biology at the University of Guelph, specializing in Nutritional Science. Afterwards, I studied holistic nutrition to expand my knowledge on integrative health. I then attended Ryerson University and obtained a Bachelor of Applied Science in Nutrition and Food. I have also taken courses in Sport Nutrition, Natural Health Products, Motivational Interviewing, Dysphagia Management, Population/Public Health Needs Assessment, Critical Care Nutrition, and Counselling for Behaviour Change. I have worked for many companies such as Alternatives Market, various integrative health clinics, GNC, Alive magazine, Aramark, Compass, Rexall, Abbott, and various long-term care facilities including a Region of Peel home. As well as nutritional consulting, I have worked as a Foodservice Supervisor at long-term care facilities. I enjoy researching and writing about various health topics. As the editor and contributing author of a nutrition eNewsletter, I wrote many articles that were emailed to recipients across Canada. My goal is to help people achieve their optimum health. I accomplish this by developing nutrition plans for clients which are individualized to their personal needs. I have a passion for food and nutrition. I also enjoy conducting workshops and cooking demonstrations. I truly believe that food is medicine!

And what is the difference between a Nutritionist and Dietitian anyways? Does it really matter who I go to for nutrition advice?​​ Yes it does! ​The title “Registered Dietitian” is protected, whereas “Nutritionist” is not. This means that Nutritionists can have a varying amount, and quality, of education. These courses can be just a few weeks to several months. Dietitians have a minimum of a 4-year degree in foods and nutrition from an accredited university program and undergo comprehensive and rigorous training. They then have to complete a 1- year internship and pass an entrance exam into the College of Dietitians in their province. Daniela’s formal education includes 2 university degrees in nutritional science, as well as training in ‘holistic nutrition’, plus a 1-year internship working side-by-side different Registered Dietitians. Dietitians, just like engineers and medical doctors, are accountable to provincial regulatory bodies for the highest standards of education and ethics. Just like all regulated health professionals, dietitians are required to stay on top of emerging research, skills, and techniques. They are held accountable to their college and need to adhere to their Principles of Professional Practice. This includes only using the most up-to-date and evidence-based information in their area of practice. Dietitians have the education to translate the science of nutrition into terms everyone can understand. They look beyond fads and gimmicks to deliver reliable advice tailored to your personal needs. Dietitians believe in the power of food to enhance lives and improve health. They take a holistic approach with their clients. Working with a dietitian can save health care costs, improve employee productivity, reduce a client’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and more.
