Elsternwick Osteopathy Clinic – St Kilda Osteopathy
Osteopathy is one of the fastest growing complementary medicine practices in Australia. St Kilda Osteopathy has a team of dedicated Melbourne Osteopaths who look after patients from St Kilda as well as local suburbs of Elsternwick, Balaclava, Elwood, Prahran, Caulfield and more!
Osteopaths treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions – ie, conditions that affect the muscle and joints of our body. We see all types of acute and chronic injuries, which may vary from a sprained ankle, wry neck, disc bulge, sciatica, lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, muscle spasm, arthritis and of course lots of other conditions.
Our approach to helping you move better and feel better encompasses treating the whole body – not just the area of pain. For example, if you have lower back pain, we will assess and most likely treat your lower back, mid and upper back, your hips, knees and ankles! This is due to the fact that everything is connected – and one part of the body influences the others – so treatment and rehabilitation is so important to look at all areas!
Treatment techniques that Osteopaths employ range from soft tissue massage, mobilization and manipulation, dry needling, myofascial release, cranial osteopathy to exercise rehabilitation. Each treatment and patient is treated individually according to their presenting complaint, pain and condition.
We often offer treatment and services to people in Elsternwick at St. Kilda Osteopathy. We will work proactively to have you pain free, moving well and feeling great as quick as possible, and liase with your other health care providers or gym trainers to make sure you’re program is right of you!
