Osteopathy is a form of Manual Medicine, which recognises the critical link between the structure of the body and the way it functions.
Osteopathy assesses’ the body as a whole with treatment and management aimed at achieving a harmony whereby the body can heal itself as it was designed to.
Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.
Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, osteopaths can identify important types of dysfunction in your body.
Osteopathic treatment may include techniques such as stretching, soft tissue massage, muscle energy, dry needling, counter strain, functional, mobilisation and cranial for general treatment of the entire body.
In Australia, Osteopaths are government registered practitioners who complete a minimum of five years university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis, ergonomics, biomechanics, exercise and post-surgical rehabilitation and osteopathic techniques.
Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions, that may 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 including the Medicare Chronic Disease Management Scheme. Osteopaths are registered providers for workers compensation schemes, motor accident insurers and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
