Injury resulting in short and long term pain?
Osteopathy is a highly skilled manual therapy, which is performed using detailed evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of dysfunctions and conditions that can plague the body. Osteopaths have a Masters level qualification in Osteopathy equating to a minimum of 5 years of University training with further required continuing professional development via courses and programs.
The evaluation of your condition and injury will extend from a comprehensive and detailed past medical and lifestyle history, combined with orthopaedic testing and biomechanical evaluation.
Via evaluation, referral for imaging as well as our 5 year university course, coupled with 5 years of subsequent clinical experience, allows me to spend time to truly explain and discuss your current situation.
Treatment aims to assist the body back to its natural alignment and cycles and will occur via a wide range of techniques to affect (but not limited to) the musculoskeletal system. Treatment techniques used are dependent not only on the condition presented but the patient being treated. These techniques can include:
- Stretching via muscle energy techniques, passive and functional stretching,
- Manipulation via mobilisation, HVLA and functional range of motion
- Dry Needling
- Fascial release
- Soft tissue therapy
- Craniosacral therapy
- Biodynamic therapy
As Osteopaths we are also mindful that your injury may require further skilled input and often our rehabilitation programs and treatments will include other medical professionals to provide you with a team dedicated to your highest possible care.
Our desire is to provide you with the knowledge, understanding and tools to create long lasting lifestyle changes, removing or diminishing your current pain, whilst supporting you to get back to the life you want to live.
