Here at Osteopath Sutherland Shire we serve as the allied health professionals and follow patient-centred approaches to the functional improvement and overall healthcare of our patients. This involves recognising the important link between the body’s structure and its overall functioning.
Osteopath Sutherland Shire follows a variety of approaches to enhance body’s functioning, which includes manual therapy (massage, stretching, mobilisation, and manipulation for joints and ligaments), equipment prescription, exercise therapy/programming, patient education and lifestyle advice. Osteopaths follow a mixed pattern of management approaches and frequency of treatment by using diagnostic approaches and skilled clinical evaluation.
In Australia, Osteopaths work as the government registered practitioners who have obtained minimum accredited university training in general healthcare diagnosis, physiology, anatomy, pathology, and osteopathic techniques.
Osteopath Sutherland Shire is a team of basic healthcare practitioners who are trained to analyse and recognise conditions, which require a certain medical referral. In addition, these professionals are also trained to perform the basic examinations of the respiratory, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and nervous systems.
Osteopathy is covered by numerous private health funds as well as Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plans. Osteopaths are registered service providers for motor accident insurers, DVA patients, and State workers’ compensation schemes.
