• What We Do

    Our Approach

    At OCO (Ottawa Chiropractic & Osteopathy) we use a unique approach to healthcare management that is a combination of techniques used by practitioners around the globe.


    Our practitioners are able to address structural and nervous system weaknesses that may be the real CAUSES of a wide range of complaints, to help you achieve superior and sustainable results.

    Our Treatment

    We have a number of different treatment tools in our box. What ones we will use depends on your condition and your goals.


    Traditional "Hands-on" Treatment

    This is done primarily as "hands on" treatment taught in chiropractic and osteopathic schools. The treatment is typically low force, gentle, and effective and is directed at the bones and myofascial tissue. Don't be mistaken, this is not myofascial massage.


    Focused Shockwave and Radial Pressure Wave

    These treatments are effective for chronic pain due to problems with the muscles, fascia, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones. It is probably the most effective treatment we know of for such problems. Read more here.


    Pulsed Radio Frequency Neuromodulation

    This treatment is effective for the symptomatic relief of chronic intractable pain. It is widely used for the effective treatment of neuropathy and other motor or sensory nerve conditions by stimulating affected nerves with a patented Pulsed Radio Frequency waveform. Case studies include the successful treatment of: Diabetic neuropathy; Rheumatoid arthritis; Bell’s palsy; Migraines; Sciatica; Meralgia parasthetica


    Neurological Rehabilitation

    This treatment involves nerve specific activation and actions and low level light therapy to address neurological issues that have resulted from injuries and traumas. The tests are based in traditional neurology but the treatment is directed to specific nerve actions.


    Super-pulsed Low Level Laser Therapy

    This treatment has been shown to be effective in the treatment of numerous conditions such as acute sprains/strains, neuropathy, disc injuries, etc. Laser therapy is typically paired with other treatments as it helps the tissues that are being treated repair.


    Microcurrent Therapy

    This treatment has been shown to be effective in the treatment of acute and chronic pain while also being implicated in the acceleration of healing of tissues. It is typically paired with other treatments as it helps the tissues that are being treated repair.


    Frequency Specific Microcurrent

    This is treatment using micro-amperage current and the resonance effect of frequencies on tissue and conditions to reduce symptoms such as pain from nerves, joints, and muscles we see in fibromyalgia, CRPS, and other conditions and injuries. This is not the same as the TENS units of the past. Read more here.


    Matrix Repattering Therapy

    Matrix Repatterning is a new way of understanding, objectively assessing and gently restoring balance within the body. It is a clinically-proven form of manual therapy based on sound scientific principles, utilized around the world by many health-care professionals. Matrix Repatterning restores structural balance, eliminates pain and improves overall health by resolving the problem at the source – literally at the cellular and molecular levels.

    Care is “tailor made” for you!

    By evaluating YOU the real causes can be addressed and superior results achieved — regardless of complaint. No two patients are the same. Each individual’s makeup is different and OCO methods address the specific needs and physiological tolerances of each individual. This is what makes a treatment at OCO unique.

    Who is this for?

    OCO treatments are suitable for the whole family.


    The approach is very non-invasive, stress & pain free; some people even fall asleep during treatment! This makes our treatment suitable for the very young through to the very aged, and those that are very sick or injured. Our methods are some of the safest methods of treatment available.

    *Please note that your OCO practitioner is not directly treating your diagnosed condition, organs, etc. The methods used are aimed at influencing your body structure, and the signalling and communication pathways that your brain and body uses to ensure proper function. These methods are designed based on the principles of anatomy, neurology, neuroscience, chiropractic, osteopathy, and acupuncture.
