OSTEOPATHY

Introduction to Osteopathy

 

Osteopathy (Osteo) began in 1874, when doctor Andrew Taylor Still discovered that optimal health is only possible when all the cells and tissues of the body function together, in harmony. Dr Still proved he could restore a person back to full health by treating the body with his hands and he named this innovative approach Osteopathy.

 

Pakenham Osteopathy has treated locals from Officer, Beaconsfield, Berwick, Bunyip and surrounding areas for over 13 years.

 

Our university qualified, highly experienced and talented osteopaths use proven traditional osteopathic techniques with modern scientific practices to ease pain, restore movement and improve body function.

What to expect from your Osteopathic treatment

 

If you’re coming for your first Osteo appointment, we ask you to arrive 15 mins before your appointment to fill out any necessary paperwork.

 

Your first consultation will involve your Osteopath asking questions about your condition and symptoms. This may include covering your medical history and any other areas of concern.

 

After this your Osteopath will conduct a full Osteopathic examination. This may include clinical tests involving diagnostic, orthopaedic or neurological tests, postural assessments, and activities or exercises.  These factors will ultimately help your Osteopath develop the most accurate and effective treatment plan for your condition.

 

Your Osteopath may provide you with information and instructions to help manage your condition between appointments, which will be crucial to a faster recovery.

 

Our Osteopathic treatments and techniques include:

  • Massage
  • Stretching
  • Muscle Energy Techniques
  • Joint articulation and mobilisation
  • Spinal and joint manipulation

 

The number of treatments required will depend on your condition, how long you’ve had it and the severity of your symptoms. Most patients require a series of about 4 to 6 treatments for the best results, however for some these results are achieved after 1 or 2 visits.
