Physician Becomes Osteopath After Treatment by my Student!
Canadian MD Studies Manual Osteopathy after Hiring my Student!
Manual osteopaths do miracles on a daily basis. We treat chronic cases that see us as the last resort. We help patients who thought they have to live with their pain forever. We give hope and a pain free life to many.
Here is one of these cases. My National Academy of Osteopathy student Tony Lee, a manual osteopath in Richmond Hill, Ontario (Canada) got hired for the rehab clinic of Dr Raymond Chan, BSc(O), MBA, MD, DOMP, DO, a medical doctor.
This physician had no idea what manual osteopathy was. The first patient he referred to Tony was an accident case with multiple fractures. This patient was unable to walk without assistance, and numerous professionals from different fields were unable to help him walk. After two weeks of manual osteopathic treatment provided by my student, this patient was able to walk!
This appeared like a miracle and Dr Chan was so impressed with manual osteopathy that he and his wife Clarice registered at NAO to study manual osteopathy. Dr Chan followed his osteopathic education by also obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Osteopathy and a Doctor of Osteopathy degree from National University of Medical Sciences.
Dr Chan has recently expanded his clinic to become National Academy of Osteopathy satellite clinic in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Four NAO students would intern in his clinic in the next term, starting March 2015.
I am honoured to have such distinguished graduates.
