What is an Osteopath?

 

Qualified with a 5-year university degree, Osteopaths are trained in the diagnosis,
treatment, management and prevention of musculoskeletal pain and injuries.

 

Osteopaths use a range of hands-on techniques to restore mobility,
relieve discomfort and improve the physical function of the body as a whole.

 

Osteopathy can be claimed back on most private health insurance funds
as well as being recognized by TAC, DVA, WorkCover and Medicare through the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) scheme.

 

We look forward to helping you achieve your Health and Balance.
