How can Osteopathy help you?

Osteopaths are primary health care practitioners who are trained to recognise conditions that may be more complex that initially considered which may require a referral or progression to other health professionals or specialists.

They are trained to perform specific examinations of musculoskeletal, neuromusculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine and nervous systems.

Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, such as soft tissue manipulation, myofascial release, muscle energy technique (MET), joint articulation, joint mobilisation and if needed, high velocity low amplitude (HVLA).

In Australia, osteopaths are government registered practitioners who complete an in-depth, specific university/master’s degree in anatomy, functional anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, general healthcare diagnosis, osteopathic techniques, philosophy and methodology.

Dr Jamie Bennett is a fully qualified, registered and insured Osteopath, as well as a member of the Osteopathy Board AustraliaOsteopathy Australia, and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
