Osteopathy is a primary health care and alternative medicine that focuses on whole body health. It targets both the muscular and skeletal system, which can then be used to evaluate gait and postural compensations/complaints and any resulting symptoms.

 

Osteopaths are trained to perform standard medical examinations of many of the body systems including: musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems. Osteopaths view the body as a ‘whole’ meaning that if one area is injured, many other areas may alter their function to compensate. This means that osteopaths may treat not only the presenting symptoms but also primary complaints/areas that may be the cause of those symptoms. One of the main aims of osteopathic treatment is to correct impaired or altered function of the bodies’ framework.

 

Osteopathy has been a registered profession for over 36 years having been practiced in Australia for over 100 years. It combines traditional methods with modern scientific evidence to provide the best health outcome.
