As one of the most trusted Osteopath Clinics near La Trobe University, Northern Spinal & Sports Injury Clinic uses advanced Osteopathic treatments and techniques for the mobilisation of joints and soft tissues.
Our team consists of highly trained, experienced and dedicated osteopaths who provide a professional and personalised osteopathic treatment service unique to your needs.
Osteopathy is a unique system of health care which utilises diagnosis and hands on treatment to improve the structure and function of the body. Using a combination of orthopaedic assessment, rage of motion testing, functional and postural motion, and medical imaging (when required), our osteopaths will formulate a treatment plan that is tailored to each patient’s needs. Osteopathy aims to restore optimal physical function and performance by addressing imbalances or dysfunction that may cause pain and reduced mobility.
Northern Spinal’s osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments), along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues.
Osteopathy is a form of manual healthcare which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.
Osteopathy is a natural medicine with the intention of restoring the normal function of the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalances that may be the result of injury, illness, stress, and the chronicity of daily living. It supports the philosophy that the body has an innate and natural ability to self-regulate and heal.
By addressing poor posture, improper techniques, muscle imbalances, poor work practices, or other bad habits the our experienced osteopaths are able to address these issues and hence treat the patient as a whole. This approach reduces the likelihood of the same injury happening again in the future and also reduces any worsening of the condition or any more degeneration/dysfunction of the patients condition.
Osteopathy plays an integral part in the management of sports and spinal injuries. Our clinic offers a wide range of treatment and rehabilitation options for various conditions.
