Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual healthcare that recognises the important link between the structure of the body and its ability to function at its maximum ability.  After five years of University training and compulsory continued education every year, our Osteopaths are able to use skilled evaluation and diagnostic training to discuss with you a reason and educate you about the cause of your pain, and create a unique, specific and tailor made treatment plan for you.

Our osteopathic techniques include:

  • Soft tissue massage

  • Trigger point release

  • Stretching and muscle energy techniques

  • Mobilisation or articulation of joints

  • Manipulation

  • Intramuscular dry needling

  • Home exercise prescription and advice

 

Our osteopaths will listen to what is important to you, what your expectations from treatment are, and will do everything they can to get you back on track and having fun with life.

Why See an Osteopath?

 

Our Osteopaths work with clients of all ages (from newborn to the elderly) for a range of conditions including:

  • Headaches and Neck Pain

  • Lower back and Sciatia

  • Hip, knee and ankle pain

  • Shoulder injuries

  • Elbow and wrist pain

  • Sporting injuries

  • Postural complaints/injurie

  • Pregnancy Related Pain

  • Paediatric conditions

What happens if Osteopathy can’t help me?

 

With our excellent referral networks including GPs, sports doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, podiatrists, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists, if we believe that Osteopathy will not help your condition then we will help you to arrange the necessary level of care for you, and will continue to check in with you, as our care continues, even after you have walked out of the clinic.

 

Do I need a referral?

No, you do not need a referral from a GP to see an Osteopath, and we accept on the spot rebates through all private health funds.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring with you any relevant x-rays, MRIs, CTs or other imaging. If you have been given a home exercise program from another therapist it may also be helpful to know what they have prescribed, so that we can work in conjunction with them.​
