Osteopathy is a safe form of gentle hands-on medicine that is used to treat various forms of pain and imbalance within your body.

Osteopaths use stretching, massage and gentle manipulation of joints to treat your entire body and address the underlying cause of your pain or injury.

At Complete Health, we thoroughly explain our assessment of your body to you, and ensure that you understand the process we are using to treat your pain.

By treating the cause and not just the site of your pain, we aim to reduce your pain and return you to your full range of motion and get you back doing the things you enjoy.

Our Osteopaths understand how your muscular-skeletal system (muscles, bones, nerves) interact to cause you pain and based on our thorough Osteopathic assessment, we will design the right treatment plan for you.

Some of the most common reasons people see our Osteopaths are:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Joint pain (e.g. knees, hips, shoulders)
  • Sport/work related injury

What to Expect During Your Initial Consultation

No matter what your reason for attending a session with one of our Osteopaths, they will provide you with a thorough physical assessment and explain:

  • How your muscles, joints and spine relate to your pain.
  • How your movement and posture relates to the imbalances in your body.
  • The ways your lifestyle (e.g., work, diet, stress) may impact on your body.

With this in mind your Osteopath will determine the most effective way to treat you and prevent any future problems.

Your first thorough Osteopathic Assessment takes 45 minutes and subsequent treatment sessions are 30 minutes.
