Osteopath Balwyn North

Having operated in Balwyn North since 2004, Boroondara Osteopathy is a well-established clinic. When looking for healthcare it’s important to find practitioners that will look for the root cause of your pain and not simply treat the symptoms. Symptom treating is useful and required but fails to improve your body for longer term management. Our Osteopaths in Balwyn North are focused on solving movement and tension patterns with the background of Anatomy in Motion education which complements our osteopathy skillset.
Our clinic also provides care for pregnancy related pain, breastfeeding mothers with our special interest area associated with mastitis, and also tongue tie assessments and therapy for infants.

Our Latest Osteopathy Blogs...

Osteopathy is a therapy that looks at the whole body as one system. Osteopaths consider how body structures interrelate and work out how the body tissues are impacting each other to cause pain & discomfort. Our therapy is not specific to one body tissue type (ie. bones or muscle), in fact we will look at the structure from the ligaments holding your joints together, to how the tendon and muscle are functioning as well as the discs that lie between your spinal vertebrae.

Anatomy in Motion was developed by Gary Ward, a bio mechanical guru that our Osteopaths have had the privilege of learning directly from. The Anatomy in Motion model is very Osteopathic in it’s design looking at the whole body patterns our human structure moves most efficiently in. These patterns get altered when injuries, surgical trauma and scar tissue result, and also from other significant painful experiences in the body such as concussion or deep bruising. From these factors our body will adjust to accommodate the experience of pain, effectively creating a compensated pattern. It’s these compensation patterns that our Anatomy in Motion practitioners re-work to restore balance & efficiency again, providing a more comfortable body to live in.

FAQ's

Are Osteopaths qualified health professionals?

Yes. Our studies require us to complete a 5 year double-degree at university to qualify. Registration of Osteopaths is by the Osteopathic Board of Australia which is overseen by the national regulator known as AHPRA.

How long has Boroondara Osteopathy been operating?

Since 2004. Initially from a GP practice, then we had rooms at Greythorn Shopping Centre for 9 years until we moved to our current location in May 2016.

What therapies do you offer at your clinic?

Our interests lie in many approaches to the human body as each person who enters our space will require a tailored treatment plan. We are all individuals with different histories and day-to-day stresses that impacts us all in different ways.

To accommodate the spectrum of causes of body pain and discomfort we may use:

Do you treat babies?

We do. There are a number of practitioners in our clinic that treat babies for many reasons ranging from head-turning issues to gut and colic upset. We also offer tongue tie assessment and therapy for babies. Shoot to our Babies & Osteopathy page HERE.

Do you provide craniosacral therapy?

For sure! It’s a valuable tool we have in our toolkit as we work to decipher each person’s needs for manual therapy treatment. We also offer stand-alone craniosacral appointments.

What about pregnancy related treatment? Do you work with pregnant women?

We sure do. Pregnancy presents its own body challenges for women and is a rewarding area of practice given the outcomes that can be experienced.

I have pain but I've been told I just have to live with it. What can I do?

Our Osteopaths are very much about deciphering the root cause of your puzzle. We have some unique skills from our Anatomy in Motion education that has created a framework to objectively look at how your posture, movement issues and pain are all related. We will look at your whole history and your whole body which unfortunately is rare in the manual therapy world.

How can I book an appointment?

We have reception available to receive your call on 9859 5059.  You can also use the convenience of our online bookings.

Does Medicare cover any of your appointment fees?

If you are eligible for a Chronic Disease Management plan from your GP then we are able to claim part of your fee for you on the spot with medicare. There will still be a gap to pay.

Can I use my private health insurance?

If you are covered for Osteopathy then absolutely. You are able to claim it directly at the clinic.

Do I need a referral?

If you come as a private client you do not need a referral. However for Dept. Veterans Affairs or Medicare subsidised treatment with a CDM plan, a GP must provide us the correct documents.

Workcover & TAC clients require a valid claim number to book in. This needs to be provided prior to the appointment so we can organise any requirements with these 3rd party providers.
