OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy

Osteopaths help people who are in pain or who want to move better. Osteopaths focus on the body as a whole, looking at how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.

Osteopaths use a range of approaches to enhance function, including manual therapy (mobilisation, stretching, massage and manipulation), dry needling, lifestyle advice and patient education.

In Australia, all osteopaths complete minimum 4-5 years accredited university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and osteopathic techniques. They are also trained to perform standard examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.
