In Australia Osteopaths are allied health professionals that offer patient-centred approaches to healthcare and functional improvement. Osteopaths works holistically because they recognise that the structure and function of the body relies on the proper organisation and communication between the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs.
At Good Self our Osteopath is focused on really hearing your story and unravelling the cause of your discomfort, injury or pain with the aim of putting an end to it all as quickly as possible. During your consultation you will experience a full body assessment as well as various treatment techniques aimed at providing pain relief and rehabilitation. You will also go home armed with home-based exercises aimed at encouraging you to play an active part in your recovery.
Here’s how an Osteopath might treat you during your consultation:
MANUAL THERAPY (mobilisation, stretching, massage, manipulation for joints and ligaments)
EXERCISE AND THERAPY PROGRAMMING
COLLABORATIVE CARE PROGRAM
Collaborative Care is a new concept created for for individuals who are ready to take a deeper look into their whole health picture because they have a few things going on and it’s been bothering them for some time.
For example, we often see individuals who present with lower back pain who may also have digestive issues. Or period pain and lot of anxiety and jaw pain. Or a sports injury and hormonal imbalance. We can address all of these niggles as part of one treatment plan – this is a holistic as it gets!
Navigating multiple health issues at once can be expensive and confusing. We want to make this simple and so will put our practitioner heads together to create your own Collaborative Care plan that helps you to understand:
What’s going wrong with your body
How we can help you to fix it
How long treatment will take
How much it’ll cost
Collaborative Care plans are $99 and give you a session with BOTH our Osteopath and Clinical Naturopath to get you started in your recovery. After these sessions you’ll be armed with all the information you need to understand exactly what the next steps are to your recovery.
