“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing. B&HC is here to help you climb your mountain.”

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 musculo-skeletal 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.

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.

Your Visit

At your first visit to our North Carlton osteo clinic, a thorough medical history and physical examination will take place to identify areas of dysfunction and allow for an accurate diagnosis of your problem. After a diagnosis has been made, osteo treatment will be given. As well as hands-on treatment, you may also be given exercises and advice from our osteopaths, to assist you in your recovery. Situated just north of Melbourne’s CBD, our osteopaths treat a variety of both office based and sporting injuries and are available Monday to Saturday. Note: Please allow 60 minutes for an initial consultation and 30 minutes for subsequent consultations
