Our osteopaths integrate osteopathic techniques with overall health, considering posture, movement, and lifestyle. This holistic approach creates personalised treatment plans, addressing root causes for long-term health and mobility.

What does an Osteopath do?

Osteopaths provide musculoskeletal and nervous system assessments, manual therapy, clinical exercise programs, and movement, postural, and ergonomic advice. They may use therapeutic needling techniques, such as dry needling and trigger point therapy and offer ongoing support and education on lifestyle, stress management, and diet. This approach is beneficial for children, teenagers, adults, seniors, people with disabilities, occupational health, injury prevention, pregnancy care, and exercise based rehabilitation.

Frequently asked questions:

  • Do I need a referral to see an Osteopath?

    You do not need a referral to see our Osteopath, you can book and pay for your service with us as per appointment pricing. Please note that Osteopaths are part of the CDMs so you can talk to your GP about a referral for coverage. Some private health insurance plans may require notification so best to check with your health insurer or program provider beforehand.

  • What can I expect during my initial consultation with the Osteopath?

    Your initial consultation will typically involve a discussion of your medical history, current symptoms, and overall health goals. The Osteopath will perform a physical examination to assess your posture, movement, and any areas of concern. Based on this assessment, they will develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Your initial consultation may or may not include an active treatment or management.

  • How long are Osteopath follow-up consultations?

    Follow-up consultations with the Osteopath are typically 30 minutes. This allows the Osteopath to evaluate your progress, adjust your treatment plan as needed, and address any new concerns you may have.

  • Can I use my private health insurance for my Osteopathic consultation?

    Many private health insurance plans cover osteopathy. We recommend contacting your insurer directly to confirm your coverage and any specific requirements.

  • Does your practice participate in the Medicare Chronic Disease Management (CDMs)?

    Yes! Previously called Enhanced Primary Care (EPCs), we accept referrals for CDMs. Advise your referring GP and email, fax or hand deliver a copy of your referral to our Wellness Care Consultants who can set up your care plan and book all your appointments.

  • Can I use my DVA card to cover my Osteopathic consultations?

    Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Gold Card holders may be eligible for coverage of osteopathic services under certain circumstances. We recommend contacting DVA directly to inquire about your eligibility and specific requirements.

  • What's the difference between an Osteopath and Chiropractor?

    Osteopaths take a holistic approach, treating the entire musculoskeletal system, while chiropractors focus specifically on spinal alignment and adjustments. Both are formally trained but use different treatment methods.
