How can Osteopathy help you?

Osteopathy and Osteopathic treatment are effectively used to treat general medical conditions such as headaches, back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, joint restrictions, muscle spasm, period pain, rotator cuff injuries, restricted joint range of motion, shortened tissue state, scoliosis and general alignment.

Sports injuries such as sprains and strains, muscle tears, pelvic imbalance and postural correction. Osteopathic Treatment is safe for everyone including athletes, ladies in pregnancy, children, office workers, the elderly and the general public.

Osteopathic & Massage Treatments in Brisbane for:

Headaches & Migraines

Headaches come in many shapes and forms.

There are primary headaches such as Tension headaches, Migraine headaches andCluster headaches to name a few.

Headaches are quite often hard to pigeon hole as one specific type of headache, as quite often there can be combinations of causes which lead to atypical headaches.

This probably explains why there is no “one ” treatment for all headaches.

Our practitioners recognize that headaches are often complicated in nature and therefore take a holistic approach towards their treatment.

Strains

Strains happen when there is excessive stretching and or tearing of the muscle or connective tissue of the muscle (tendon) that attaches to the bone.

The resulting pain can be sharp and instant or may be of a delayed onset. The body is very good at protecting itself and often compensatory patterns will develop as a result of the injury that may lead to a reduction in functional healing and can also lead other areas of the body functioning abnormally and therefore progress to further injury elsewhere.

Our practitioners recognise this and therefore not only address the primary area of injury but also the secondary areas that set up in the body that can result in pain and abnormal function.

Pregnancy

During pregnancy a great amount of change and development occurs to accommodate a growing foetus.
Postural changes & increase in weight are obvious, other changes may be more subtle like the effects of hormonal softening of ligaments & the position of the growing baby.

These changes can place excessive pressure on your joints and muscles of your spine and pelvis.
The most common complaints during pregnancy are:

  • Lower Back Pain,  Shortness of breath
  • Neck, shoulder and upper back pain
  • Insomnia, Sciatica, Swelling
  • High blood pressure, Fatigue
  • Gait issues, Plantar Fasciitis

Sport Injuries

There is no doubt that Australia is a sporting nation.

At the Queensland Osteopathic Clinic we share that passion and we are here to assist in all the sprains and strains that occur in all the sporting fields.

Our practitioners are highly trained and carry a vast experience in the treatment and management of sporting injuries Osteopathically.

Back Pain

Up to 80% of Australians will experience back pain at some point in their lives and up to 10% will experience significant disability as a result.

Back pain will also significantly impact the lives of those affected and can cause a serious reduction in the quality of life

Sprains

Sprains occur when there is excessive stretching or tearing of the ligaments and soft tissue that supports out joints.

Often this ensures pain, swelling, instability, guarding and a breakdown of proprioceptive information to the brain that helps assist in coordinated muscular movement of that joint.

Our practitioners are not only committed to assisting the healing of the injury but also returning as much normal function to the structure as soon as possible.

In short, our aims is to get you back out there as soon as possible in the best shape as possible.

So, Where Does Osteopathy Fit In During Pregnancy? The philosophy of Osteopathy is that structure and function are interrelated. Our treatments aim to improve the structure so that it functions as efficiently as possible and therefore promotes Homeostasis (the natural healing ability of the body). We aim to assist the natural process of pregnancy and birth by aiding the body to adapt and align as the pregnancy progresses. Osteopathic treatment achieves this by using safe and efficient techniques, while making sure the mother is comfortable at all times. During birth, a range of factors influences the descent of the baby through the pelvis. The mother’s pelvis may be twisted or rigid which can interfere with the baby’s passage through the birth canal. Osteopathic treatment can help to align your body so that your pelvis and lower back mechanics are in the best possible position they can be and with as little tension or restriction as possible. Osteopathic treatment will maximise your body’s ability to change and support you and your baby with minimum pain and discomfort.
