CARING PROFESSIONAL

Enhance and maintain good health

Osteopathy is an old clinical discipline that has been proven, by numerous scientific studies to be very effective in the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of patients with acute and chronic back pain.

All the techniques that modern science has shown to be effective in helping with acute, chronic and complex issues are basic osteopathic approaches.These include the use of skilled and specific manual therapy such as really good massage-type tissue work, and the use of gentle and subtle techniques. When appropriate they will include graduated prescribed exercises, specific for each individual and their life circumstances, and clinically-appropriate joint manipulation. Osteopaths also place more value on the fact that they aren’t just treating an injury or body part, but are treating a person.

Patients who follow their osteopath’s treatment plan have been shown to become less reliant on medication to cope with pain.

Osteopaths treat more than backs, muscles and bones. Some of the conditions osteopathy can treat are:

  • sports ailments/injuries
  • neck pain & stiffness
  • back pain & stiffness
  • acute and chronic lower/lumbar back pain
  • lumbar disc problems
  • acute and chronic issues
  • TMJ, jaw pain and dysfunction
  • headaches and migraine
  • sciatica
  • mid and upper back pain and discomfort
  • referred pain, from acute and chronic issues
  • stiffness and/or pain at the base of your skull
  • sacral pain and discomfort
  • inflammation of the joints and tendons
  • scoliosis
  • overuse injuries (e.g. rotator cuff, shoulder impingement, shin splints, elbow strain, shoulder strain, and with early carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms)
  • rib movement dysfunction 
  • rib problems associated with muscular imbalance and joint issues
  • shoulder, elbow and hand pain
  • hip, knee, ankle and foot pains, strains and sprains
  • muscle strains and spasms, including eye-strain from sinusitis and muscular fatigue
  • pelvic pain and discomfort associated with surgery and female-specific conditions
  • skeletal-muscle-related eye strain
  • nerve and circulatory entrapment such as carpal tunnel, and thoracic outlet syndrome

UNDERSTANDING

What is an Osteopath?

An osteopath in Australia is a qualified health-care professional. Their approach to your health is a generally non-invasive, drug-free branch of the primary health-care system that works to restore your body’s natural balance and function by means of physical intervention and professional advice. The osteopathic approach to patient care places emphasis on the reciprocal relationship between physiological and anatomical structures.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

F.A.Q.

No, as a private patient you don’t need a referral to see an osteopath. We are primary health-care practitioners, which means all you need to do is call to make an appointment. If you wish to come under a Chronic Disease Management Plan. If you are under a WorkCover or other insurance claim, you will need to prove your eligibility prior to attending, and pay for the appointment, to be reimbursed by your insurance company.

No, please and thank you. Modern devices have cameras and voice-recording technology which put the privacy of other patients, and practitioners, at great risk. Switching devices to silent does not protect our practice, our patients and our records from privacy law risks. We respectfully require anyone attending our clinic to turn off all devices before entering.
