Boroondara Osteopathy is an established clinic (2004) located in Balwyn North in Melbourne’s inner eastern suburbs. Most of our clientele is local to Balwyn North, particularly Kew, Surrey Hills, Canterbury, Box Hill, Doncaster & Balwyn. However, we treat a number of people who travel to us from country Victoria or from interstate.
Our Osteopaths provide treatment for a wide variety of conditions, and for people of all ages including babies & the elderly. If you find yourself suffering from back pain, neck pain, headaches, pregnancy pain, a sports injury, arthritis, or any other form of muscle pain or joint pain, we will identify the cause of your problem, and provide you with a tailored treatment program specifically for your condition. Our Osteopaths also work with you on injury prevention and ergonomic strategies.
Headache & Migraine.
Did you know that at any given time 15% of Australians are taking pain-killers for a headache. What a statistic! It shows that you are not alone in your suffering. You experience headaches when one or more structures of the head or face are irritated. The pain is then transferred to the head in the form of a headache which can be felt as a nagging, throbbing, sharp or dull, ache of varying intensity. Many headaches are caused by neck tension, jaw tension (especially if you grind or clench your teeth) and poor posture. Our Osteopaths readily diagnose, treat and alleviate these conditions.
There are a number of causes of back pain such as muscle spasm, disc injury, joint sprains, stress & tension, and ligament pain. It is consequently very important to get the right diagnosis so you can receive the appropriate treatment. Osteoporosis, arthritis and sciatica are frequent worries for sufferers when it comes to back pain, but these conditions are much less common causes of back pain. Our Osteopaths will take into account the many factors that can cause back pain and then provide you with a tailored physical treatment including massage, joint mobilising and stretching. Our Osteopaths may also recommend specific stretching and other exercises to help you manage your condition.
Neck and shoulder pain commonly go hand-in-hand considering the variety of ways it can be injured. The main causes we consider when dealing with neck pain are poor posture, arthritis & trauma. Most people describe a feeling of stiffness (especially when reversing the car), muscle pain and tension, and feelings of being hunched forward. Our Osteopaths assess your neck, back and rib cage as a whole to determine the cause of your neck pain. Only then can you get long lasting results from physical therapy. Stretches are an integral part of your recovery and management. We will teach you the easiest way to accomplish this pain-free existence.
As you would probably expect, the most common pregnancy pain is back pain. With the dramatic changes your body is trying to conform to, muscle pain and stiff joints are the main instigators. Osteopathy provides a comprehensive complementary therapy choice during and after pregnancy. Our osteopaths will assess your hips, low back, mid back, rib cage, and also your neck if you are finding yourself with headaches. The good thing about us is that we will look at your body as a whole, and look at all the different tissues that are being pulled this way and that as your belly grows. This approach ensures you will receive the right physical therapy for your unique experience.
