Boroondara Osteopathy is a well-established clinic that has been serving local members of the community around Mont Albert since 2004. Our osteopaths want to understand the reasoning behind your complaint, this helps us create a plan best suited to you. We aim to make changes to your body that last long-term, this is important as we want to see you continuing to improve. Osteopaths can help patients with a variety of issues, including sports and spinal injuries, pre and postnatal care, postural complaints, and headaches. We’re here to provide you healthcare that looks at you as a whole person not just a set of symptoms. If you’ve been looking for this, our osteopaths at Boroondara Osteopathy are here for you.
We can put our bodies through the ringer sometimes! Whichever background you come from be it manual work, a desk job, or even retirement we can all find ourselves with muscle tension and stiff joints sometimes. Osteopathy is designed to unpack the issues you may have, using a variety of techniques to unload or unwind the tissues to find relief.
Osteopaths are all university educated in applying these techniques and can use them for a variety of complaints. For problems such as strains and sprain, we’ll provide the hands-on as well as helping you come up with a plan to tackle your problem from home too! We can also help manage chronic pain by finding and address the root cause of a problem.
We aim to release and relieve the pain and tension in the body through our experience in hands-on body work. Working on the body through muscles, tendons, discs, joints, and ligaments allows us to work on the presenting issue. By holistically viewing your areas of pain, we can identify focus points to release the stresses and tension held by tissues in the body.
Sometimes when we think of something as insignificant, it might actually hold a lot of answers for us. We find that patients with sinus complaints, headaches, feeling “off”, or just generally feeling like they can’t get a handle on their stress and anxiety can find a lot of answers through cranial osteopathy. Cranial osteopathy is all about the bones of the head and pelvis. Our body follows a natural rhythm in these areas, and if we have a disruption to that rhythm we start to see changes throughout the rest of the body too.
A muscle that is often neglected is the tongue, somehow we forget that the tongue needs to be looked after too. It’s such an important part of our body we use it everyday for eating, drinking, and talking! So what happens if it’s restricted with a tongue tie? We start to see issues arising from a tongue tie from infancy this might look like latching issues or as bub gets older speech troubles and snoring – which can also be a sign in adults as well as neck pain. So if you have an inkling something might be amiss perhaps it’s something to look into.
When you first think about 9 months it seems like a long time (and if you’re at the end of your term I’m sure it feels long too!). BUT when we get down to it, it’s not a lot of time and your body is making a lot of adjustments very quickly to accommodate bub. So it make sense why our joints and muscle sometimes can’t keep up, they might start to tighten up and your movements may be feeling stiff and forced. The good thing is, osteopathy is safe for pregnancy! Our goal to help reduce that muscle tension and encourage the joints to keeping moving, this can help reduce those extra aches and pains while bub continues to grow.
Have you got question about your baby? Maybe you’ve heard that babies could do with a check up following birth. There’s a number of reasons parents seek our assistance when it comes to their baby. Some things are quite obvious, such as baby’s head not turning easily in both directions. But then we also see babies that have an unsettled nature and the parents are wondering if our skilled hands could identify something. Whatever the reason, our Osteopaths are here to assist you and make sense of the issue at hand.
Anatomy in Motion is a mindset approach, looking for answers to ongoing or unresolved problems. The key for us is to ask you about your history in as much detail as you can remember. The whole picture of your body history is where we look for the reasons why your body is suffering in the way it is. By understanding the patterns that injuries/trauma/surgeries impact the body’s position of posture and movement, we can then restore the movement issues that are missing. Sometimes our clients realise what they are moving poorly in their body, and other times they experience the eye-opening examples when we show them. This is pure body detective work to get to the root cause of the problem.
Unfortunately, the experience of breastfeeding is not always a wonderful one. It can feel overwhelming when an issue arises and even more overwhelming when you are not sure how to handle the problem. Mastitis creates that experience for me breastfeeding mothers. Our job is to not only treat your breast/s but educate you on how to prevent the issues returning. Blocked ducts and engorgement can also be causing this type of stress. Whatever your breastfeeding issue, with our knowledge of how breast anatomy functions, we will work to solve the problem with you.
