Osteopathic treatments may vary from person to person, depending on the condition or injury of each individual patient.
Here at Osteopath Sutherland Shire, we inquire about the problems and symptoms that you are experiencing. This also involves questioning about your medical history, any medications administered to you and even about those factors that are indirectly related to your problem.
If we find it deems necessary, a full osteopathic examination is conducted, which involves orthopaedic or neurological tests, diagnostic, assessments and exercises or activities to find out the best way to manage your condition.
The most interesting fact about Osteopathy is that it follows a holistic approach while treating each patient. For instance, if you are suffering from sore knees, your practitioner will carefully monitor even the other parts of your body, as well as the area that is troubling you.
Since Osteopathy is a type of manual therapy, it involves massage, repetitive movements, stretching, manipulation and/or mobilisation. Usually, most of the osteopathic treatments are soft, gentle and relaxing. Your osteopath will take extra caution while administering hands-on treatment at injured and painful areas.
Apart from rendering qualified Osteopathic services, Osteopath Sutherland Shire also pays attention to provide advice and necessary education to assist the patients while managing their condition between appointments. For example, these patients may be asked to do certain exercises while at home or work.
Osteopath Sutherland Shire provides effective and comprehensive treatment. Our qualified and experienced Osteopaths focus on the functioning of your skeleton, muscles, circulatory system, joints, nerves, connective tissue, and internal organs as a whole-body unit.
