What Is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy recognising the important link between body structure and wellbeing. How your entire body functions affects your overall health. Nurtured Birth osteopaths are trained to identify the cause of imbalance, not just treat the symptoms.
Osteopaths are well trained and highly skilled in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of dysfunction in your body. They are also trained to recognise conditions that require medical referral, ensuring you receive the best and most appropriate care.
One of our main areas of focus is pregnancy care. At Nurtured Birth, our osteopaths support the changes your body is going through, treating and alleviating common pregnancy issues.
Osteopathy care can help to ensure your baby is in an optimal position for birth, encouraging your baby and body to work toward a positive birth experience.
Our osteopaths use gentle, safe and effective manual techniques for treatment, such as:
- Manual therapy (stretching, massage, gentle joint manipulation and joint balancing techniques)
- Exercise therapy
- Lifestyle advice
- Patient education.
Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and by Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Plans.
