Osteopathy

Osteopathy treats a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and is manual medicine for the whole body. Osteopathic treatment has been designed to work with the connection between all the systems of the body to relieve pain, improve mobility and restore health and vitality. The Osteopathic Manual Practitioner will assess the whole body and then apply gentle palpation skills to treat the root cause of dysfunction. Although treatment may be directed toward several specific areas, the effect of the treatment is often felt throughout the body.

Book an appointment with Kym

Kym Sayers is a kind, experienced Osteopathic practitioner who graduated from Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia in 2011 with a five-year Masters degree in Osteopathic medicine. Since then has been working in private practice and sporting teams in Melbourne, and more recently in St Catharines, Ontario.
Kym likes to treat a wide variety of complaints, from sporting injuries to more complex cases. In particular Kym enjoys the challenge of trying to get to the bottom of why an injury might have occurred, from there she can develop an individual treatment and management plan tailored to you. Kym is knowledgeable in all areas of injury prevention and will ensure you have a firm understanding of the reason why your complaint is present, and what you can do at home to improve your recovery.
Kym believes treatment has to stretch outside the treatment room, therefore her consultations include advice on posture, nutrition, exercise, and work or home ergonomics to facilitate overall health, rehabilitation and injury prevention.
Kym also has a special interest in the role that stress and anxiety may play in musculoskeletal conditions.
