What is Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathic Medicine is a form of Manual Medicine that looks at your entire body and mind and how effective it is working, as one unit.


Your brain, skeleton, muscles, nerves, organs, tissues and circulation are all balanced in harmony using an array of specialized Osteopathic techniques from gentle cranial sacral or biodynamic techniques, to other techniques including manipulation, soft tissue, muscle energy or dry-needling to name a few, depending on your condition and your preference to treatment.

Osteopathic physicians are government registered allied health practitioners with rebates available to those with the appropriate level of private health cover.
Your Osteopath will also assess your posture, biomechanics, ergonomics, cranial flow and core stability and will prescribe specific advice tailored to your condition.

Finding the Health is the primary focus of Osteopathic Medicine and our aim is to remind your body of its true health potential with no pain.

Your body heals itself naturally.

Allow your Osteopathic physician to assist you in finding your Health and living your life to its fullest potential.

By Dr. Chris Rickson, Osteopath

  1. I would like to express thanks to you just for bailing me out of this type of matter. As a result of researching through the world wide web and coming across ideas which are not helpful, I assumed my entire life was done. Being alive minus the approaches to the difficulties you have fixed as a result of your good blog post is a critical case, as well as the kind which could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not come across your web blog. Your actual ability and kindness in playing with the whole thing was very helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a thing like this. It’s possible to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this high quality and result oriented help. I will not hesitate to propose your blog to anyone who will need assistance on this matter.
