Irene Borecky, CAT(C), Osteopathic Manual Practice--Thesis Writer
I first entered the field of rehabilitation intending to work mostly with athletes as a newly certified Athletic Therapist and coming from an athletic background myself. In the clinical environment though I was finding myself treating all kinds of clients from work place injuries, motor vehicle accidents, post-surgery and special populations. Eventually I was primarily seeing clients with chronic injuries and complex conditions. I realized the traditional orthopedic assessments and treatment techniques in my skill-set were only helping to a point.
I began studying Functional Movement Systems (FMS) and Somatics to closely analyze movement patterns and help clients re-learn fundamental movements for the prevention and recovery from injuries. In 2013 I began my journey in Osteopathy at the Canadian School of Osteopathy, Manual Practice to enhance my skills in analyzing and understanding the human body. Osteopathy uses a gentle and refined touch to manipulate bones, soft tissue, viscera, and the cranium to encourage self-regulation within the body. Osteopathy addresses all the systems within the body to restore function, improve pain, and rebalance the body. I have found it to be my "missing link" in understanding complex conditions for more successful outcomes.
