Osteopathy In The Spotlight!

Osteopathy In The Spotlight!

The osteopaths at our clinic are all professionally registered with Osteopathy Australia.  This ensures that patients who attend our clinic can rest assured that they are being treated by practitioners who continue to develop their education and are always up-to-date with any industry changes and current professional knowledge.

Inner Balance Health Clinics and Osteopathy Australia are once again joining the Osteopathic International Alliance to promote Osteopathy Awareness Week.  Running from 16-22 April the awareness week will be celebrated by osteopathic organisations around the world to promote increased awareness of the osteopathic profession and its contribution to global healthcare.

What can osteopathy treat?

Each injury or condition that a patient presents with is unique, so osteopathic treatment will vary from person to person.  Osteopaths assess the mobility of problem areas, ask you questions and make a diagnosis to work out the best treatment plan for your specific needs.

Osteopaths may well treat more than you think – they focus on how your skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulatory system, connective tissue and internal organs function as a whole body unit.

Symptoms and conditions osteopaths treat might include head and neck pain, back pain, limb pain, knee pain, sciatica, areas of numbness and other forms of chronic pain.  We treat people of all ages including children and the elderly.

All of our osteopaths are registered providers with the major health insurance funds too, so check with your private health insurance provider to see whether you may be entitled to an extras rebate.  If so, we can process the claim at the time of your appointment (as long as you bring your health insurance card with you when you come in).

If you suffer from pain and would like to experience an osteopathic treatment why not make an appointment with one of our osteopaths today on 9437 9555.
