Osteopathy

Osteopathy is an emerging form of holistic therapy that uses a number of hands on techniques to identify and improve mobility and function of common musculoskeletal complaints and various other health issues:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Knee injuries
  • Pre and Post- Natal problems
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Foot/Heel pain
  • Rotator cuff/shoulder injuries
  • Neurological Rehabilitation
  • Tendonitis/bursitis

Osteopaths are required to complete a minimum of five years full-time study, including a Masters degree in Health Science and Osteopathy, to be eligible for registration in Australia. We treat with the theory that the body can heal itself by improving the structure and function of the circulatory, nervous, lymphatic and musculoskeletal systems.

We use our hands to treat you. We work with your muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons using a combination of stretch, massage, articulation, and manipulation techniques- all which can vary in intensity depending of the presenting complaint and patient needs.

Osteopaths provide rehabilitation exercises, as well as preventative ergonomic advice, dietary management and more. Osteopaths are primary healthcare providers and are trained to recognise conditions that require referral. We work with GP's, specialists, radiologists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, local gyms and personal trainers, amongst others, to ensure a well-rounded care plan for every patient.

Patients covered under Workcover, TAC, DVA and EPC all welcome.
