Osteopathy is a ‘whole body’ system of manual medicine, based on unique biomechanical principles, and the understanding that the body is a self corrective system.
Structure and Function of the body are tightly interwoven, and a full osteopathic examination includes both structural observation as well as examination of many functional movement patterns, in order to gain an understanding of where treatment should be directed.
Manual techniques employed by the Osteopath to encourage self healing include:
Massage & Trigger point therapy
Muscle energy techniques (MET): to relieve joint and muscle dysfunction
Joint mobilisation and manipulation
Stretching and exercise prescription, including referral to one of our branch-off classes where indicated
We take the necessary time to offer the best care possible, and will never rush your visit.
Our Osteopath has over 8 years experience in the Bendigo area.
