Osteopathy Treatment in Essendon

What is osteopathy

Osteopathy was developed in the U.S.A during the 1800’s and has evolved to become a system of manual therapy that focuses on the relationship between the structure of the body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs operate as a unit.

The osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) as well as mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues.

Qualifications and training

In Australia, osteopaths are government-registered practitioners who complete a minimum of five years university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and osteopathic techniques.

Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions that require medical referral. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.

How do we treat

Lifespan Osteopaths use a variety of hands-on techniques, such as massage, stretching, mobilisation, manipulation, and other ‘indirect’ techniques such as Cranial Osteopathy. All treatments are tailored to the needs and wishes of the individual patient, and your health and safety is always our highest priority.

Following your case history and examination, your Osteopath will discuss a treatment plan with you, and provide recommendations based on their knowledge and experience of your condition. You will have the opportunity to discuss any questions before treatment commences, as well as at any point throughout the consultation.
