MELBOURNE OSTEOPATHIC CLINIC - Osteopathy



What Is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is an established recognised system of diagnosis and treatment, which lays its main emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body. It is distinctive by the fact that it recognises that much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as damage caused to it by disease.


How Does Osteopathy Work?

Osteopaths work with their hands using a wide variety of treatment techniques.
These may include but are not limited to:
  • Soft tissue techniques
  • Rhythmic passive joint mobilization
  • High velocity thrust techniques


Each of these techniques are designed to improve mobility and the range of movement of a joint. Gentle release techniques are also widely used, particularly when treating children or elderly patients. This allows the body to return to efficient normal function by maximising blood, neural( nerve) and lymphatic flow, without putting additional stress on the body.

  • Changes to posture in pregnancy
  • Babies with colic or sleeplessness
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Postural problems caused by driving or work strain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • The pain of arthritis
  • Soft tissue sprains and strains
  • Sports injuries among many others


Leaflets explaining many of the common treatments used are available at the clinic or you can just give us a call to discuss with one of our practitioners the benefits that an Osteopathic Treatment can have on your health & wellbeing.


What To Expect During a Consultation?

When you visit an Osteopath for the first time a full case history will be taken and you will be given an examination. You will normally be asked to remove some of your clothing and to perform a simple series of movements.

The Osteopath will then use a highly developed sense of touch, called palpation, to identify any points of weakness or excessive strain throughout the body. The Osteopath may need additional investigations such as x-ray, scans or blood tests,but these will be discussed with you during your consultation. By having these additional tests your Osteopath be able to better create a suitable treatment plan to treat your ailment or sporting injury.
