What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a primary health care profession specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Osteopaths use visual inspection (observation) and palpation (touch) combined with the clinical history taking to make a diagnosis. As primary healthcare practitioners osteopaths have access to other diagnostic procedures such as X-rays, MRI scans, diagnostic ultrasound, blood tests and urine tests and will utilise referral pathways for these procedures if deemed necessary.
Our osteopaths at the BodyFix Clinic use various treatment techniques to manage a patients complaint, some of which include, soft tissue work, mobilisation/ manipulation, dry needling, interferential therapy, ultrasound and taping. Each osteopath at the clinic is an individual with his or her own unique style of practice and we believe it is important for a patient to find an osteopath that fits with his or her unique needs. At the BodyFix Clinic we are ideally placed to provide a wider set of skills by using interferral between practitioners if needed.
