Osteopathy is a system of musculoskeletal medicine. Osteopathic treatment is based on the principle that, if the body moves well, its parts function well, therefore leaving you pain free to do the things you want to do.

An osteopath treats the whole body, rather than just the injury, because all the parts of the body are connected. By treating all the affected areas, you will have less pain, recover faster, and get on with the important things in life.

Osteopaths examine the joints, muscles, nerves, and ligaments for injury, mis-alignment and pain. If necessary, osteopaths can arrange special diagnostic tests which help to confirm what’s causing the problem.

Osteopaths also give advice on food and diet, exercises and movements to help you recover and avoid further injury, and medications for pain relief and inflammation.

Before the osteopath determines the appropriate treatment for your specific condition, they will thoroughly assess you with standard medical examination tests and special osteopathic tests. If hands-on osteopathic techniques are a part of your personalised treatment plan, the osteopath can choose from a number of different techniques depending on your needs.

What to expect from Osteopathy Treatment

  • Soft tissue massage aimed at releasing tension from muscles and joints
  • Joint manipulation involving a small, focused and precise movement applied to a specific joint.
  • Contraction of muscles to increase blood flow and improve muscle control which helps to prevent joint injury and pain.
  • Ultrasound to decrease inflammation, increase elasticity and encourage healing of injured tissues.
