Osteopathy

Our osteopath helps Brisbane patients to recover, heal and thrive.

Osteopathy is one of the best modalities if you’re experiencing pain, discomfort or headaches. At Shift at Brisbane Natural Health our osteopath has over 10 years experience in getting you balanced and back to living your best life.

Osteopaths use advanced techniques that work with the natural rhythms of your own body to correct postural misalignments, areas of tension and pain and help you recover from injury.

Under the gentle care of an osteopath your body can be gently coaxed and encouraged back to where things need to be. Our osteopath uses a holistic model of health care that looks at your musculoskeletal system and where the pain originates, but also takes into account what other issues in your body may be adding to the issue.

Is there any evidence for osteopathy?

The evidence behind the use of osteopathy is mounting. Because osteopathy is an individualised treatment no 2 patients will be treated the same, so it can be difficult to conduct research on the modality as a whole. Here are a collection of studies that show benefit of specific osteopathic techniques for headaches and neck pain. Here is a list of studies showing benefits for lower back and pelvic pain issues.

In most cases, we find osteopathy to be very helpful to those that are in pain.

What to Expect in Your First Treatment

Your Medical History

Your appointment will begin with a thorough medical history assessment. Your practitioner will take the time to listen to you, and ask questions so that there is a more complete understanding of the situation and circumstances that have brought you to seek help. If relevant, questions may be asked about your work routine, diet, pattern of exercise, sleep habits, etc., as these may give clues to help our assessment.

Assessment

In addition to a detailed medical history, Osteopathic assessment consists of postural observation, mobility testing and hands on palpation. The Osteopath will perform a physical examination of any structures and systems that could be related to the presenting concerns. Standard orthopaedic and neurological evaluations are performed to ensure osteopathic treatment is appropriate. If further medical investigation or medical follow up is necessary, you will be referred back to your family physician for their intervention. Osteopathy is a form of complementary medicine, designed to work together with your M.D., or other health-care practitioners.

Your Treatment

Osteopaths use a wide range of gentle manipulations, depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis. Treatment is different for every patient but may include techniques such as different types of soft tissue massage, visceral and joint manipulation to release tension, return muscles to their normal length, help relieve pain and mobilize your joints.

 

Discover

At your initial appointment, your osteopath will use several diagnostic techniques to assess your health. Many of these would be similar to what you’d experience in a physiotherapists office. From this information, your osteopath can then develop a custom treatment that will be able to help you as much as possible.

Renew

Your osteopathy treatment will help to begin correcting the issue right there on the table. Your recovery and results really depends on how severe the issue is, how long you have had it and what particular factors the therapist is dealing with.

Arrive

Our main aim is for you to get back to where you want to be. We want to help you resolve or manage your issue so you can live a life that you love.
