In Australia, Osteopaths undertake 5-years of full-time study with a 3-year undergraduate degree in clinical science and a 2-year Masters in Health Science. Osteopaths are required by law to be registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)

Osteopathy is claimable by private health insurance. To find out if you are covered for these services please contact your insurance company directly.

Please bring along any X-ray, Scan (MRI, ultrasound CAT etc), and blood test results you may have regarding the relevant concern.

It’s important that you feel comfortable, so wear a loose shirt or T/shirt, and loose pants or shorts, or bring loose clothes with you to change into at the appointment.

You can check with the clinic beforehand, however often you will be asked to remove some clothing for treatment so that our practitioners can best access the affected area. 

It is advisable to arrive 10 minutes early to your initial consultation as you will be required to fill out a new patient form and thoroughly read & sign an informed consent form.

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 to another health practitioner.

Your osteopath will conduct an examination and clinical tests. These include diagnostic, orthopaedic or neurological tests, movement and postural assessments, which 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 be asked to perform an activity. Be sure to wear comfortable, flexible and appropriate underwear and clothing. Osteopathy takes a whole of body approach to assessment and clinical management, so 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.

Osteopaths provide a broad range of treatments. Osteopaths prescribe clinical exercises for you to do at home or work, provide manual therapy, needling techniques, lifestyle interventions and recommend equipment to help you manage your condition and function.

Depending on your condition or any concerns you have raised, your osteopath may require some further testing or referral to another health provider. These may incude:
– Referral for further imaging such as x-ray or MRI.
– Referral to your GP for further assessment or blood tests
– Co-management plan crafted with another allied health care practitioner, Eg; Podiatrist. 
– Referral to a specialist via your GP
