Osteopathic Treatment

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of manual healthcare which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. At OsteoRehab we focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.

Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, OsteoRehab practitioners can identify important types of dysfunction in your body. As Osteopaths we use a variety of techniques including stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues.

In Australia, Osteopaths are university trained in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and Osteopathic techniques. Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions which require medical referral. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.

Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) scheme. Osteopaths are registered providers for workers’ compensation schemes via Workcover or worksafe, motor accident insurers via TAC and the Department of Veterans' Affairs - DVA.
