MANUAL OSTEOPATHIC PRACTITIONER:
Randy Pedersen, Manual Osteopath
After graduating from McMaster University with his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, Randy perused his interests in human anatomy and movement at George Brown College’s Prosthetics and Orthotics program. This is where he learned the science and the art of assessing and fabricating prosthetic and orthotic (custom orthopaedic bracing) devices for individuals with limb disorders. Building on that background, Randy continued his education in the Pedorthic field and became a Canadian Board Certified Pedorthist or C.Ped(C). They are one of the few healthcare professionals trained in the assessment of lower limb anatomy and muscle and joint function.
Randy was introduced to osteopathy as a heath care field via his children’s participation in elite sport. He was intrigued with the philosophy of osteopathy and how osteopathic manual practitioners examine and treat the whole body as an inter-related dynamic unit of function- looking for the cause of dysfunction and not just the result or pain. Following his keen interest in osteopathy, Randy attended the 4 year, principles based Osteopathic program at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy where he earned his certification as a Master of Practice in Osteopathic Manipulative Science (M.OMSc.) and is OSTCAN certified.
