Registered Chiropodist and Osteopath
Since graduating from Michener Institute in 2000 Minoo Shakibai continues to pursue the best techniques to treat foot problems, and thusly expanded her studies to osteopathy to further understand the body's effects on its foundation: feet.
She has been certified in Foot Mobilisation Technique (FMT) since 2014 and graduated as an Osteopath in 2015.
Specializing in manual therapy that treats muscles, joints, the nervous and lymphatic systems as well as general alignment of the body.
Focusing on Pediatric Osteopathy has allowed her to provide preventative care in babies, and treat any problems before they leave a lasting effect. Often, early issues are dismissed at birth as the parent is told “they will grow out of it” or it simply remains unnoticed by the physician. Pediatric Osteopaths are trained to detect and treat issues that otherwise go unnoticed at birth. It is not possible to determine what foot and leg deformities will outgrow or not therefore it is important to treat those conditions as early as possible.
Many newborns experience trauma during birth. Any pressure on the baby’s body can lead to long-term conditions such as lower extremities dysfunction that could have been simply treated and prevented by pediatric osteopathy. Osteopathic treatments are very effective in those issues that are likely not of congenital origin. The treatment consists of very gentle manual therapy that relieves pressure and tension in the cranium and the rest of the body.
