  • What is the difference between osteopathy, physiotherapy and chiropractic?"
    This is a common question and a difficult one to answer. Obviously, as osteopaths, we cannot speak on behalf of physiotherapists and chiropractors, however, what we can say is that osteopathic medicine aims to view your symptoms holistically. We take into account all structural features that may have contributed to the initial onset of your injury. We then aim to use a combination of manual therapy and exercise therapy to rehabilitate the root cause of your injury, with the aim to prevent further injury and future episodes.
  • Is osteopathy right for me?
    We're always happy to chat and shed some light on your woes. If you're not sure whether osteopathic medicine can help you, simply leave your details in our contact form for a free 15-minute consultation.
  • Do I need a referral?
    No, you do not need a referral to see an osteopath. Simply call us on 0493 013 213 or make a booking online via the button at the top of the page.
  • How long will my appointment be?
    Initial appointments are 45-minutes return visits are 30-minutes
  • How many appointments will I need?
    It depends. During your initial consultation, we'll assess your injury and provide you with a thorough understanding of your condition and the proposed management plan. This management plan includes our hands-on treatment plan, your strengthening exercise plan and our professional judgement of how long your recovery will take. Our primary goal is to get you back to living your life again, and do not want you to receive treatment if it is no longer needed or necessary.
  • What should I wear to my appointment?
    We want you to feel comfortable during your treatment. We may ask you to remove certain items of clothing if we need to assess or use manual therapy in certain areas. For this reason, we normally suggest coming to your appointment in the same clothes you would wear to the gym. T-shirts, sports crop tops, shorts and tights are all appropriate attire for your osteopathic appointment.
  • What should I bring to my first appointment?
    Just yourself. However, if you have had recent medical scans/imaging reports, which are related to your complaint, bring that too. But, other than that, there is nothing you need to specifically bring to your appointment unless your osteopath asks you to.
