Osteopathy is a world-wide recognised form of complimentary medicine, providing a ‘hands on’ approach to restore optimal function of the musculoskeletal system. An osteopath is trained to conduct thorough physical, orthopedic and neurological testing to help diagnose and treat each patient independently. You can also expect advice on injury minimisation posture, exercise and nutrition.
Osteopath’s use a range of drug-free, non-invasive techniques including but not limited to soft/deep tissue techniques to relax muscles and improve blood flow, mobilisation and/or manipulation of joints to help improve quality of joint motion and stretching. The aim of osteopathy is to allow your body to function free of restrictions and stress, improving physical performance, mobility, strength and blood flow, and in the case of injury supporting the body’s ability to heal itself.
Osteopaths in Australia are required to complete five years of university consisting of a three-year degree and a two-year Master’s program. Osteopaths are government registered and are recognised by all major health funds under their ancillary cover.
