Dr. Craig Appleyard is certified in Family Medicine but in 2006 he retired from family medicine to enter what is known as a “Focused Practice” in muscle, bone and joint problems, otherwise known as Manual Medicine or Orthopaedic Medicine.
Techniques employed include gentle osteopathic manipulation as the mainstay, but also injection techniques for spinal pain where needed, such as Caudal Blocks for disc herniations or spinal stenosis, and Prolotherapy for loose ligaments.
Energetic approaches to treatment will likely revolutionize medicine in years to come. Acupuncture is the best known and most widely accepted energetic treatment modality, but there are others that will be developed and refined as time goes on. Incorporating these approaches will not only enable us to help more patients with longstanding and difficult problems but, over time, may change the landscape of medical practice in a positive way.
The majority of the practice is covered by OHIP but there are some treatments that are not. New referrals are asked to fill out a comprehensive questionnaire before appointments are booked.
