OPEN 6 DAYS/WEEK. OVER 15 YEARS ESTABLISHMENT.
Osteopathy is a type of manual medicine that is “hands on” and diagnoses, treats and manages conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathy is based on 4 main treatment principles that include:
The body is a unit
The body has self-regulation mechanisms
Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated
Rational treatment – body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function
Osteopaths focus on the persona as a whole, taking into consideration all aspects of health - physical, mental, social and environmental.
Our role is to:
Reduce and improve your Pain
Improve healing time
Improve joint mobility and muscle stability and flexibility

What to Expect
During your consultation, our team of 4 Osteopaths will take a full medical history, perform an examination and diagnose your presenting complaint. You will receive a full explanation on your condition, and with your consent will use techniques that are evidence based, effective and specifically tailored to help you.
This may include soft tissue massage, mobilization of the joints and muscles, joint manipulation, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, dry needling and rehabilitation techniques.
Each person and their pain is individual, and therefore treatment and management will be specific for each person that we see, even if they have a similar problem.
