Osteopathy

Osteopaths use their hands to treat your pain and restrictions. When we treat you, we focus on your spine, neck, muscles, or any other source of pain and discomfort.  Osteopathy is not a "one size fits all" treatment, therefore we tailor-make a treatment plan to suit your unique situation.

What do we do?

Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, osteopaths can identify important types of dysfunction in your body. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues.

In Australia, osteopaths are government registered practitioners who complete a minimum of five years’ university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and osteopathic techniques.

Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions that require medical referral. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.

Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds.  Osteopaths are also registered providers for Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plans, DVA patients, workers’ compensation schemes and motor accident insurers.  Contact us for more details to see if you fit into one of these categories.
