If you are not sure if we can help, feel free to give our clinic reception a call and request a ‘call back’ from a member of our Osteopathic team. One of our practitioners can have a brief chat with you about your concerns, and advise you as to what approach is most suitable.
Unlike the conventional approach to medicine, which emphasises the use of pharmaceuticals to mask or manage symptoms, Osteopaths take the time required to establish a clear understanding of why your problem developed in the first place, and put into place a series of steps that will attempt to resolve the underlying problem.
Our Osteopaths are highly trained ‘structural’ Osteopaths and will adapt their treatment and techniques based on your needs. The Osteopathy treatment techniques your Osteopath will use include:
- Spinal manipulation (Also known as an ‘adjustment’)
- Joint mobilisation
- Muscle energy technique (MET)
- Soft tissue work/massage
- Balanced ligamentous tension (BLT)
- Myofacial release
- Visceral manipulation
- Therapeutic ultrasound, and
Treatments are generally not painful.

What to expect at your first appointment
At your first session, your Osteopath will ask you about the history of your problem to establish when and where the symptoms first started and how they may have changed over time, the treatments (if any) you have received to date, and the impact your pain may be having on your life.
After learning of the history of your pain, your Osteopath will carry out a hands-on examination, which comprises of various tests of the spine, nervous system, muscles and joints. Generally, none of these tests are painful, however if you are in acute pain, your Osteopath may ask you to demonstrate what positions and movements reproduce or exacerbate your pain.
After identifying the underlying cause/s (which usually don’t, however occasionally do require referral for an x-ray, C-T scan or MRI), your Osteopath will set some treatment goals, with the ultimate goal being to restore maximal, pain-free movement to your muscles and joints.
While you should allow up to an hour for your first session, return visits are usually 20-30 minutes long and offer treatment & periodic comparative assessments to work towards your goals.
