KRONK osteopathy

Why see an Osteopath?

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions.

Osteopaths treat all kinds of joint or muscular pain and more. We take a holistic approach to your treatment by reviewing your direct problem area as well as assessing your whole body and your lifestyle including your diet, type of work and sporting activities.  This helps us to understand the cause of your problem and find ways for you to gain immediate and long-term relief; offer preventative solutions; and equip you with pain management skills.

We use our hands to treat you.  We work with your muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons using a combination of stretch, massage, pressure point and manipulation techniques to promote mobility and restore your body’s balance.

Generally you would expect to see some changes to your condition within a couple of visits.
Australian osteopaths are five year university trained, and are government registered and regulated health professionals.

Osteopathic treatment

What should I expect?

Your osteopath will ask about your problem and symptoms. This will include your medical history, any medications you are taking or other factors that may not appear to be directly related to your problem.

Your osteopath will advise you if they can treat you or you need to be referred.

Your osteopath will conduct an examination and clinical tests. These include diagnostic, orthopaedic or neurological tests, postural assessments and activities or exercises, which will help determine how best to manage your condition.

The examination may include passive and active movements. The osteopath may lift your arms or legs and you may be asked to bend over or stand in your underwear. Be sure to wear comfortable, flexible and appropriate underwear.

Osteopathy takes a whole of body approach to treatment. Your osteopath may look at the area that is troubling you as well as other parts of your body. For example if you have a sore knee, your osteopath may also look at your ankle, pelvis and back.

Your osteopath may also provide education and advice to help you manage your condition between treatments. This may include giving you exercises to do at home or work.

FAQ

Do I need a referral from my GP?

No, you can make an appointment directly without a referral. If you have been diagnosed with a chronic medical condition and require complex care you may be eligible for Chronic Disease Management (CDM) assistance. The GP must complete a special referral form (PDF, 201kb) to refer you to an osteopath for treatment.
