OSTEOPATHY IN FITZROY NORTH

WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

In osteopathic medicine, understanding the links between different parts of a person and how they function together is the fundamental principle. This holistic approach to medicine allows the practitioner to assess a person as their parts, individually as well as collectively. Essentially Osteopaths have an astute understanding of pain and or dysfunction in all parts of the body.

Using a variety of methods including soft tissue techniques, stretching, joint mobilization, exercise prescription, advice and discussion, dysfunction in the body can be identified and appropriate treatment provided.

The importance of understanding each patient as an individual with unique issues and needs is vital to osteopathy. This is why our practitioners take the time to hear you, through your voice & body.

An individual body is a whole interrelated unit in which the body’s structure, function and intention are dependent upon each other.

 

The body self-regulates and has the inherent capacity to protect and repair itself naturally without intervention.

 

Disease or injury occurs when the body’s normal adaptability is disrupted, or when environmental changes overcome our capacity for self-maintenance.

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 requiring medical referral. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.
