Osteopaths in Melbourne offer a non-invasive alternative therapy that aims to improve not only an individual’s musculoskeletal system, but is also beneficial across vital body systems through manual therapy.

Individuals who wish to treat injuries as well as strengthen and condition the musculoskeletal system should look into obtaining services from the best osteopaths Melbourne has to offer.

 

What do osteopath clinics in Melbourne focus on?

An osteopath has three main focal points during treatment:

  • Muscles
  • Spinal column
  • Joints

 

The following organ systems are directly influenced by osteopathic manipulative treatments:

  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Nervous system
  • Lymphatic system
  • Circulatory system

 

The manual medicine utilised by osteopathic doctors during both treatment and diagnosis is what separates osteopathy from other complementary therapies disciplines such as chiropractic medicine and physiotherapy.

 

The most common problems that osteopaths in Melbourne diagnose, treat, and manage are as follows:

  • Acute and chronic back pain
  • Headache and migraine attacks
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow pain
  • Hand, shoulder, and elbow pains
  • Postural problems
  • Neuralgia
  • Insomnia

 

During an initial consultation, an osteopathic practitioner will assess your condition and listen to your primary complaints. Once an interview is completed, an osteopathic professional will then perform manual manipulation to diagnose the condition as well as discuss solutions to achieve pain relief. Referrals will be made to other members of the healthcare team if and when additional treatment interventions are deemed necessary.

Osteopathy centres on  the delivery of effective and fast relief and comfort to its patients. If you wish to schedule an initial consultation with the best osteopathic doctors practicing in Melbourne, please give us a call on 03 9663 5450 today.
