CONDITIONS WE TREAT
WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopaths focus on your neuro-musculoskeletal system (the bones, muscles, joints, nerves etc.) and other tissues that support your body and control its movements. They know how parts of your body should work together and the impact if they do not.
Osteopaths are government registered, university qualified allied health professionals. They complete 5 years of training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis, musculoskeletal examinations and osteopathic techniques.
Each consultation with an Osteopath at Armstrong Creek Osteopathy will entail:
Listening to your story about your pain
A comprehensive musculoskeletal and nervous system assessment (where applicable)
Education on what is causing your pain and how long it will take to improve
An Individualised Treatment Plan to map out your road to recovery and what to expect along the journey
Manual therapy – including a range of ‘hands-on’ techniques such as massage, stretching, mobilisation and manipulation (where appropriate)
Therapeutic dry needling techniques (where appropriate)
Clinical exercise prescription – activities and movement strategies to complement what we are working on together for you to complete at home
Advice on posture, movement, lifestyle, stress management and other factors that may influence your pain, injury or movement
Referral to other healthcare professionals or for X-rays, Ultrasounds or other imaging for complete management of your pain or condition (if required).
