FAQ

Osteopathy is a holistic form of manual therapy which involves the treatment of the joints, muscles, ligaments and all surrounding structures and recognises the important link between the body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body as a whole and how one part affects the others and how all its parts function as a holistic unit. Osteopathic treatment is based on detailed understanding of anatomy, biomechanics and reflexes of the musculoskeletal system.

Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, osteopaths can identify and treat a wide range of dysfunction in your body, aiming to increase the quality and range of movement in the body as well as relieve pain and discomfort therefore increasing health and wellbeing. Osteopathic treatment techniques used by our Osteopaths include soft tissue work, stretching, articulation and mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues, Osteopathy in the cranial field and myofascial dry needling.

In Australia, osteopaths are government registered healthcare practitioners who complete 5 years at university.

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

Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and by Medicare's Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) and Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plans. Osteopaths are registered providers for DVA patients, as well as by State workers’ compensation (work cover) schemes and motor accident insurers (TAC).
