What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. This means considering how the skeleton, joints, bones, nerves, muscles, circulation, connective tissue and organs of the body work together as a functional unit.
Our osteopaths take a detailed case history and use a vast range of hands-on techniques to help assess, diagnose and treat injuries throughout the body
Osteopaths aim to remove any barriers that may be impeding our body's own internal healing mechanism to recover and function as a whole.
Osteopaths in Australia are qualified with a five year university degree. All of our osteopaths are insured and registered with the Osteopathic Registration Board of Victoria, and are members of Osteopathy Australia.
Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and by Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plans. Osteopaths are registered providers for DVA patients, as well as by State workers’ compensation schemes and motor accident insurers.
