Despite a steadily-expanding presence in Europe, Osteopathic manual therapy did not become firmly established in Canada until the early 1980s.

OSTEOPATHY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Outside of Canada

Osteopathy has developed to the point where it is now widely recognized throughout the world as one of the most scientifically validated and effective complementary therapies.

The United States abandoned Traditional Biodynamic Osteopathy, or Manual Osteopathy, evolving instead towards the practice of mainstream medicine and surgery.  Manual Osteopathy is widely practiced and recognized throughout the UK, continental Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and parts of Canada. The World Health Organization recognizes the Osteopathic concept as being scientifically proven, the British Medical Association recognizes Osteopathy as a discrete medical discipline, and Osteopaths are statutorily registered practitioners in many European countries and Australia where they are recognized as primary care practitioners.
