Osteopathy

Osteopathy is one of the oldest forms of ’hands-on‘ musculoskeletal medicine. Diagnosis and treatment is based on the philosophy that the body operates as a total functional unit with all the body’s systems, like your muscles, nerves and joints, working together to maintain normal function and health. By detecting imbalances throughout these systems we ensure we are treating the cause and not just the symptoms. Our osteopaths have completed 5 years of university training, attaining a Bachelor and Masters Degree in osteopathic medicine, to ensure we are expertly equipped to assess, diagnose and treat the many conditions that present in private practice. These include, but are not limited to:

  • neck and back pain
  • headaches and migraines
  • pregnancy related musculoskeletal pain
  • sciatica
  • sports injuries (such as tennis and golfers elbow, shoulder/rotator cuff damage, knee pain, ankle sprains)
  • muscle, joint and arthritic pain
  • occupational strain injuries (such as RSI)
  • work and motor vehicle related injuries
  • arm and leg pain
  • restricted mobility
  • poor posture
  • address back and chest tightness associated with asthma
  • hand and foot complaints
  • jaw (TMJ) pain
  • neuralgia

The techniques your osteopath may use include:

  • soft tissue massage techniques on muscles, ligaments and tendons
  • stretching
  • articulation and mobilisation of joints
  • gentle joint manipulation
  • exercise prescription
  • advice regarding healthy living behaviour
  • education about your injury
