HEALTHCARE HEROES COMMITTED TO IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH AND HAPPINESS

OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy treatment uses massage, stretching, joint mobilisation, articulation, manipulation and exercises to get you moving better and feeling great.

SHOCKWAVE

Shockwave therapy is used by AFL and Olympic teams to assist recovery. It involves a hand-held applicator that sends sound waves through the tissue to speed up recovery.

DRY NEEDLING

Fine acupuncture needles are inserted into painful or restricted muscles, tendons or joints. Dry needling is ideal for patients who find manual treatment too intense.

NOT SURE IF YOU NEED AN OSTEOPATH, CHIROPRACTOR OR PHYSIOTHERAPIST?

Here are some of the things that set us apart at Pakenham Osteopathy

  • Our consult times are longer to give you more time to tell your story.
  • We look for the cause of the problem, rather than just treating symptoms.
  • We provide hands on treatment. You won’t just get a heat pack put on and be given exercises.
  • We don’t just crack joints. We roll our sleeves up and get into the area with massaging, stretching and mobilisation.
  • We don’t treat multiple clients at once. We are laser-focused on you during your consultation.

HOW MUCH WILL TREATMENT COST AND WHY?

  • Management plans are always provided so you know what’s wrong, how long recovery will most likely take, and what frequency of treatment you’ll need to get back on your feet again.
  • Initial consults are 60 minutes and our fee is $119. Follow up appointments are for half an hour and our fee is $89.

AN IN DEPTH LOOK AT OUR TREATMENTS

To give you a better understanding of exactly what is involved in a treatment, let’s step through it.
Osteopaths are trained to treat all the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments in all areas of the body. Anything in the musculoskeletal system is right up our alley! Some of the more common conditions we treat in the clinic include:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck and postural pain
  • Overuse type injuries
  • Shoulder, hip and knee pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sporting injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis

Depending on what you come in with, we will ask various questions about your presenting complaint. As an example, “when did you first notice the pain come on?”, “Have you had this before?”, “What helps or makes it worse?” These questions allow us to clarify the specific injury you have and will help us to diagnose your condition.

This is followed by an examination which involves performing some movements to find out the tissues that are restricted or contributing to the problem. Special orthopedic tests as also carried out giving us more insight into which tissues are involved.

Osteopaths take a holistic approach to treatment, so your osteopath may look at other areas of your body, including the ones that is troubling you. For example, if you have a sore knee, we may also look at your ankle, hips and lower back in order to gain an understanding of what else may be contributing to your injury.
Then comes the fun bit… Treatment!!! Osteopaths use a variety of techniques including:

  • Soft tissue massage
  • Stretching
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Joint articulation
  • Joint manipulation
  • Dry needling
  • Shockwave therapy

Lastly, we provide every new client with an individual management plan which details your diagnosis, how much treatment you will need and how long you can expect recovery to take. We may provide you with stretches or exercises to do at home to aid your recovery, or advice on lifestyle factors such as posture. We believe knowledge is power so the more you know about your injury, the better your long term outcome.

Hopefully you now have a better understanding of what is involved in Osteopathy consultation and how we treat the body.
