OSTEOPATHY

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is therapeutic manual medicine that addresses entire body health through the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. We focus on structures such as our muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints and connective tissue as well as nerves and circulation to achieve the best result for our patients.

 

Osteopathy is a holistic allied health profession that treats all patients ranging from children, athletes as well as the elderly. Osteopaths use hands on treatment to enhance the health of the body to in-turn decrease the pain and discomfort with your injury.

Osteopathic Treatment

We use our experienced hands on treatment to decrease pain levels and improve mobility and flexibility of our patients. We also provide exercises to our patients in order to assist them achieving our goals of better health and wellbeing. 

 

Common techniques used at Back Into Osteopathy include:

  • Soft tissue techniques including massage and myofascial release

  • Joint mobilisation and articulation

  • Stretching techniques including muscle energy technique

  • Joint adjustments (HVLA)

  • Dry needling

  • Indirect techniques such as counterstrain


Here at Back Into Osteopathy, we are proud of our prompt referral to other allied and medical health professionals when required such as general practitioners and radiology in order to get an acurate diagnosis to ensure appropriate treatment and management.

 

Conditions Osteopaths Treat

Osteopath's treat a wide range of conditions. Osteopath's study the human anatomy and physiology and a wide range of pathologies and treatment remedies over five years at university. This enables them to have a vast range of knowledge of whole body conditions that cause and contribute to acute and chronic pain conditions.

Conditions that we treat include:

  • Back pain

  • Neck pain & headaches

  • Sporting injuries

  • Postural issues

  • Ligament sprains e.g. ankle sprain

  • Tendon issues

  • Muscle strains e.g. hamstring strain

  • Hip, knee and foot pain

  • Shoulder, elbow and wrist pain

At your osteopathic appointment, you will undergo a discussion communicating the details about your pain currently and the history if applicable. From this, a thorough assessment is taken place in order to find your restrictions and areas of pain and any futher tests if required. From here, treatment and management strategies commence to discuss what the condition is, how long it will take to get better and mobility or strengthening exercises might be needed to improve the injury long-term.
