What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that involves gentle hands-on treatment to bring about pain relief from a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, osteopathy specialists can identify areas of dysfunction in your body. All of the osteopaths at our North Carlton clinic have completed five years of university training to become registered osteopaths, and are all members of the Australian Osteopathic Association.  Registered as government practitioners, the osteopaths at Body and Health Creation have all completed highly-accredited university training in pathology, physiology, anatomy, healthcare diagnosis and osteopathic treatment techniques.  Not only this, but the osteopaths at our clinic are all highly trained to recognise conditions that require further medical referral. They are also experienced in providing standard examinations of respiratory, nervous and cardiovascular systems.

Treatment Approach

Osteopaths and back specialists use a wide variety of techniques including soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, stretching and gentle joint manipulation where appropriate to treat the muscles, joints, ligaments and connective tissues of the body. The osteopaths at our Melbourne clinic in North Carlton are also trained in dry needling. Osteopathy also takes into account lifestyle factors such as exercise, posture, diet and stress and osteo specialists will prescribe stretching or strengthening exercises where applicable.

We take a caring approach to providing treatment at our clinic, as we understand the concerns you may have with receiving treatment for a musculoskeletal condition. Our skilled osteopaths, sports injury and remedial massage therapists listen to your concerns and conduct treatment in a manner that is friendly and non-threatening.

You may require ongoing treatment once the myotherapy has started to take effect, to ensure of ongoing success and prevention from further injury or ailment.
