Our West End osteopath can help you with relief of pain plus a range of injuries and health conditions
West End osteopath at Body Organics in Brisbane
Our West End osteopath practices with the other allied health professionals at Body Organics in Brisbane. Osteopathy will emphasise the interrelationship between the structure of the body and how it functions. An osteopath won’t look at your problem in isolation; they will treat your body as a holistic unit. So the real difference is the osteopathic understanding of the total nature of your injury and the total effect the injury has on your whole body.
Osteopaths are university degree qualified, having been trained in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and osteopathic techniques.
What can I expect in my osteopathy session at the West End clinic?
In your initial session with an osteopath they will start by taking a thorough medical history. They will then focus on identifying the source or cause of your problem, whether it be pain, mobility issues or other types of dysfunction. You sometimes may be surprised at the real source of your problem – an issue with your left ankle could be the underlying cause of that pain in your right hip!
Once the actual cause has been identified, the osteopath will then treat you using a combination of hands-on techniques such as stretching, massage, mobilisation and articulation of specific joints, manipulation and soft-tissue release. The osteopath will also talk to you about any lifestyle factors or self-help techniques that you may find useful.
