Osteopathic treatment is non-invasive, gentle and safe. Our range of techniques are all hands on and expansive, including direct techniques like manipulation and massage or indirect techniques to decrease tension in the connective tissues of the body and restore a sense of balance. With this in mind osteopathy is ideal for treatment of infants, children and the elderly.
To be qualified to practice osteopathy in Australia you need to have completed a 5-year university degree. This means that osteopaths are taught using current accepted models of orthopaedic and neurologic diagnosis, thereby making it safe to treat people suffering many different complaints including, back pain, headaches, disc injuries, arthritis, etc. As we are primary care practitioners you do not need a referral to see an osteopath.
