Osteopathy is a whole body, hands on therapy that focuses on how the body works as a unit and how this governs its overall function. As a patient, you can consult an osteopath for presentations such as musculo-skeletal pain or management of nerve pain associated with musculo-skeletal complaints. These problems can be addressed whether they are short term or long-term problems. For osteopaths, each patient’s presentation is unique so osteopathic treatment and interventions will vary from person to person. Osteopathic treatment may involve soft tissue technique, stretching, mobilization and manipulation of the muscles and joints to decrease pain and promote the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. In Australia, osteopaths are government registered practitioners who complete a five year minimum accredited university course. They have extensive knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics. All North Queensland osteopathic practitioners are accredited and registered and have the aim of keeping you and your family in top physical condition.
