Welcome To Osteopath Sydney

Dr. Phil Austin, runs an osteopathic clinic at St Luke’s Care, which is located in Potts Point, Sydney. Phil offers wide-ranging treatment approaches that best suits you. We believe that each person is unique, and that treatment should be tailored to their individual needs and circumstances. A patient-centered approach means that the patient is an active participant in their own care, and that their preferences, values, and beliefs are considered when developing a treatment plan.

Osteopathy is a type of manual therapy that first focuses on treating and preventing musculoskeletal problems by using hands-on techniques such as massage, stretching and manipulation of the joints and muscles.

We also provide self-help exercises to compliment treatment they receive such as:

  1. Stretching exercises: an effective way to maintain or improve flexibility and range of motion.
  2. Strengthening exercises: to help improve muscle function and prevent injury.
  3. Posture correction: advice on effective ways to practice good posture by offering strategies for occupation, home-based and driving postures.
  4. Deep breathing: to reduce stress and improve lung function by teaching deep breathing exercises, such as belly breathing or diaphragmatic breathing, for a few minutes several times a day.
  5. Mindfulness exercises: advice for reducing stress-related muscle tension and headaches that include mindful body scanning, walking and breathing.
