Osteopathy

Are you seeking relief from pain and injury? You want to address stress or problems with energy and sleep? Or you are looking to prevent injuries and improve your posture? Our osteopath Rosie can help you.

Our clients have had great results with Rosie for instance with whiplash, sprains, strains, car accidents, falls, pain from poor posture, as well as low energy levels, trouble sleeping and stress and anxiety.


Osteopaths use their extensive training in physiology, anatomy, pathology and osteopathic techniques to treat, manage and prevent problems relating to the musculoskeletal and the nervous system.
Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue function smoothly as a whole. Our osteopath may also use a range of orthopaedic and neurological tests to find out what is going on in your body.

Osteopaths are similar to chiropractors, but generally include more work on ‘soft tissues’ such as muscles, ligaments and fascia rather than just focusing on ‘adjustments’ or ‘cracking’ (which they are also trained to do though). We believe osteopathy is one of the best forms of physical treatments you can get. Sadly, not many universities in Australia offer training in osteopathy, so we imported Rosie from the UK for you 🙂


With your consent, your treatment will involve Rosie using her hands to skilfully:

  • stretch and mobilise your joints and spine,
  • massage targeted areas of your body and
  • professionally stretch soft tissues such as muscles and tendons.

Rosie also has highly specialised training in using the nervous system reflexes of your body to support the healing process. You will receive a clear explanation along the way of how your treatment is providing healing.

 

You do not need a referral by your doctor to see Rosie but you can be referred to an osteopath by your doctor – which means Medicare will cover part of your fee just like at your doctor’s. If you get a referral, please ask your doctor for a series of treatments rather than a single one.

 

Osteopathy is also covered by most private health funds (please check your individual cover), by Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management (CDM) and by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
