Catherine Konopelky


Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

I’m excited to be part of the back on track team in Perth Ontario!  I grew up in Northern Ontario and love the outdoors. I studied health sciences at the University of Western and soon after I became a registered massage therapist at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy.

I recently completed 5 years of study at the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto. And currently I am working on my thesis, Osteopathic treatment for headaches attributed to auto-whiplash. In 2017 I will graduate as a registered Osteopathic Manual Practitioner.

Osteopathy involves skilled palpation of connective tissue (muscles, bones, organs, fascia, nerves, fluids, brain, dura, and more). We treat infants, children, teens, young adults, adults and seniors.  Osteopathy works on removing obstructions within tissues to restore mobility and health. I have taken additional courses for the treatment of concussions with Philippe Druelle and Genevieve Forget: Endocranial spasms 1 and 2. And in every treatment I blend Osteopathy and massage while working as a registered massage therapist.
