Osteopathy as taught by the Canadian College of Osteopathy can be modified to safely apply to individuals of all age groups. Patients are as young as newborn infants, and as old as elderly seniors who can no longer care for themselves.

“…to be an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner you must study and know the exact construction of the human body, the exact location of every bone, nerve, fiber, muscle, and organ, the origin, the course and flow of all the fluids of the body, the relation of each to the other, and the function each is to perform in perpetuating life and health. In addition you must have the skill and ability to enable you to detect the exact location of every obstruction to the regular movements of this grand machinery of life.”

- A.T. Still, 1901.
