Sydney Osteopathy

About Sydney Osteopathy

Osteopathy is based on relationships between the body’s structure and the way it functions. For example, if muscles surrounding a hip joint are stiff, the range of movement of not only that hip joint will be reduced, but also joints such as the opposite hip, knee and ankle joints. Additionally, links may be made between the patient’s presenting complaint and other medical and psychosocial factors. As such, taking a detailed case history is essential to diagnosis and treatment and patient self-help.

Of equal importance is the examination where an osteopath will observe patients’ general posture and movement in conjunction with tests that examine ranges of motion in structures local, adjacent and distant to the area of complaint. Findings from an examination can be confirmed or denied with investigations such as imaging techniques and other clinical investigations.

Once a diagnosis has been made and the patient is safe to treat, a wide range of non-invasive techniques such as deep and superficial soft tissue techniques, joint articulation and manipulation can be applied therapeutically. Furthermore, an osteopath can also recommend complementary assessment and treatment from other healthcare professionals that can help with other factors either raised in the case history or that become apparent during the management of the patient.

In Australia, osteopaths are university trained in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and osteopathic techniques. Osteopaths are trained to recognise conditions that require medical referral and are also trained to carry out standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, abdominal and nervous systems.

Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) scheme. Osteopaths are also registered providers for workers compensation schemes, motor accident insurers and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy, founded in the late 1800s by Andrew Taylor Still, emerged from a desire to achieve optimal health without relying heavily on surgery and medicine. The American School of Osteopathy, established in 1892, marked the beginning of this holistic approach.

Osteopathy is more than a therapy; it’s a gateway to pain relief and restored bodily function. Practised by skilled osteopaths, this holistic approach utilises manipulation, mobilisation, exercise, and soft tissue work to alleviate discomfort and to diagnose the root cause of your pain.

Imagine a treatment that sees beyond symptoms and aims to understand the unique composition of your body. Whether you’re dealing with chronic conditions, strains, or postural problems, osteopathy offers a ‘customised, tailored and personalised’ solution.

What sets Sydney osteopathy apart is its ability to address the whole body. From arthritic conditions to internal organ and system issues, osteopathy is a versatile therapy that provides relief and promotes preventive healthcare.
