What is Osteopathy?

Towards the end of the 19th Century, Osteopathy emerged as a type of complementary manual medicine. It is grounded in the way the body functions as a holistic unit.

Rather than treating symptoms in isolation and applying cookie-cutter treatments, our Melbourne osteopaths  look at the way our bodies function as whole, holistic units. In order to improve wellbeing, we decipher each patient’s specific individual needs and physiology.

“Osteopathy is a search for communication and cooperation with the natural laws of healing.” – James S. Jealous

How does Osteopathy help back pain?

Evidence shows that osteopathy treatment can help relieve back and neck pain, headaches and other musculo-skeletal complaints.

The osteopaths will help you to develop an action plan (including prevention techniques) to treat and manage your pain, improve joint mobility, circulation, and tension, which go right back to the sources of pain, whether sitting, heavy lifting or insufficient flexibility.

As osteopaths, we understand the body’s need for movement done right. We help reduce pain and prevent further damage by giving you the tools for well-being, including simple effective exercises.

If you’re experiencing back pain Melbourne, you’re in good hands at City Osteopathy!
