About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is regarded as a form of manual medicine that uses a ‘hands-on’ approach to address the structure of the body and the way it functions.

Osteopathic treatment will alter how the elements of the body – skeletal, joint, muscular, neural, connective tissues, internal organs and circulatory system – function and interact as a singular
holistic unit.

Each treatment entails a unique interaction between patient and practitioner aimed at addressing the immediate needs of the patient in view of instilling a more permanent and long-term change that optimised and maintains wellbeing and good health.

Osteopaths are not as focused on what produces disease but what will maintain and generate a state of wellbeing and good health that is self-regulating.

It is the aim of the osteopath to deliver patients with both treatments and the knowledge to maintain their health as independently as possible.


What to expect
Treatment at Osteopathy on James will utilize a broad range of highly refined techniques that are tailored to meet the unique presentation of each patient. Patients can also expect intervention beyond the clinic with a strong emphasis on holistic care and ongoing self-management. Osteopaths are primary health care professionals, which means we are able to provide the first level contact for individuals, families, and communities who approach the health care system.
With our high level of training, knowledge, and diagnostic skills we are able to identify a wide range of pathologies and initiate accurate referral to relevant health care professionals, and if necessary co-manage patients to ensure total recovery or optimal maintenance of ongoing health conditions.
During your consultation our Osteopaths will talk you through the treatment and no clothing needs to be removed. You do not need a referral to see an Osteopath so feel free to call us to make an appointment today.
