Osteopaths are manual therapists and enlist a range of hands on techniques that may include soft tissue massage, joint manipulation and mobilisation, muscle energy technique, dry needling and myofascial release as well as ergonomic advice, exercise prescription or other management strategies. Every Osteopathic consultation will involve a comprehensive history of your condition, physical examination and diagnosis.
This assessment may also include any relevant neurological or orthopaedic testing to allow us to arrive at a personalised diagnosis. Following your treatment you will be given advice on the prognosis of your condition as well as guidance on the management of your condition before your next consultation.
If you ever have any questions for your Osteopath we are only too happy to listen.
Osteopathy is the oldest of the modern manual medicines. It originated in America in the late 1800’s and arrived in Australia soon thereafter. Osteopaths are university trained in the diagnosis, treatment and management of musculoskeletal disorders. All Osteopaths at Peak Osteopathy have undertaken either a double bachelor degree or bachelor and masters degree programs at some of Australia’s major universities.
Like all Health Professionals, Osteopaths are, by law, required to undertake continued professional development each year and they are recognised and registered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Osteopathy is recognised by private health insurers and can be covered by Medicare for some patients if referred by your G.P.
