Our body design is incredible and intricate. Just like your car, it runs best when it is well-tuned.  Osteopathy works by improving your biomechanics to optimise your movement.  This results in less pain, reduced fatigue and greater health and energy. 

Whether you’re desk-bound with poor posture, a weekend warrior with runner’s knee, a Kelly Slater wannabe or a recent retiree trying to improve your golf handicap Quay Osteo will help improve your flexibility and symmetry, resulting in better strength, co-ordination and performance.

What Is Osteo?

WHAT IS OSTEO

WHAT IS OSTEO

Osteopathy is a hands-on form of manual therapy that was founded by an American doctor in 1874.  The philosophy of the profession is that the body is a unit. Treatment is holistic, considering not only the focal complaint, but other regions that are influencing the injury or are suffering as a secondary reaction to it.  For example, if you tell an osteopath about your neck pain, they will first check your pelvis and low back to ensure that you have a stable starting point for your spine and they will enquire if the neck pain is resulting in headaches. 

Osteopaths are musculo-skeletal therapists.  However, they consider much more than muscles and bones.  Osteopathic treatment effects all the tissues of the body, including the nervous system, circulation and organs.  This results in osteopathic treatment being effective for conditions less commonly associated with hands-on therapies like coughs and colds, reflux, swelling and lymphodema.

Osteopathic health care is suitable for everyone.  Osteopaths complete a 5 year university degree that includes anatomy, physiology, pathology, orthopaedic evaluation, chemistry and physics.  This gives osteopaths the breadth of knowledge and diagnostic ability to tailor every treatment to the individual.  Osteopaths take into account multiple facets of the patient, including mechanism of injury, other regions of pain, diet, exercise and stress and provide treatment and advice accordingly.

In Australia, Osteopathy is one of 14 health professions regulated at the federal government level, which also includes medicine, dentistry, nursing and psychology.  All practitioners must meet the requirements of the Osteopathy Board of Australia to be registered to practice.
