Taking care of your body long term
“Physical fitness is the first prequisite of happiness…the attainment and maintenance of a fully developed body with a sound mind”.
It is crucial to take care with your rehabilitation and recovery. Reoccurrence of injuries is very common if the underlying cause of pain and dysfunction is not addressed correctly.
At St Kilda Osteopathy we will equip you with the knowledge and techniques to care for your body and create optimal health in the long term - both in treatment and rehabilitation.
We will guide you in the most appropriate stretches and strength work for your complaint, including correct muscle activation and exercises to do to decrease pain and inflammation.
