What is osteopathy

Osteopathy is a well established method of treatment that was founded and developed by Dr Andrew Taylor Still M.D., in the United States of America in 1874. 

Osteopathy is a complementary manual therapy that offers hands-on treatment for the effects of accidents, falls, poor posture, strains, arthritis, wear and tear, and pregnancy on the body.  These may result in backache, neck pain, headaches, shoulder and knee problems, pinched nerves, and muscle and joint pain and more.

A wide variety of treatment techniques are used to alleviate tension and restriction and promote a healthy well-functioning body. These may could include manipulation and mobilisation to joints and soft tissues, 'muscle energy' stretches, and cranial-sacral therapy. 

Osteopaths are front line health professionals and work with other registered health professionals including general practitioners, specialists and radiologists to provide the best service to their patients.

Osteopaths are able to treat ACC claims patients without referral from a medical doctor and refer for x-rays and to other health professionals if required.
