Any health practitioner interested in working in Canada should consider postgraduate training in osteopathy. You find employment right away in a rehab clinic, or you can open your own clinic. Pay starts at $30 per hour and the average income is $90,000 per year. Over 95% of insurers in these provinces reimburse for osteopathic care.

Osteopathy complements massage therapy, acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy and physiotherapy very well. Patients love it and would appreciate you providing osteopathy in addition to your main profession.

  4. Chiropractic stimulates the release of endorphins and enkephalins (pain killing chemicals) as well as adenosine (a natural pain killer with anti-inflammatory properties). By using chiropractic toronto methods that stimulate distal treatment points (ie-away from painful areas), we can achieve results without causing any additional discomfort in the shoulder.
