Here at ben&biao Randwick,our Osteopath treats more than you think. Kathryn’s focus is on how your skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulatory system, connective tissue and internal organs function as a whole body unit.

What should I expect in an osteopathic treatment?

Each person, condition and injury are unique, so osteopathic treatments will vary from person to person.

Kathryn will ask questions about your problem and symptoms. She may also ask about your medical history, any medications you are taking, as well as factors that may not appear to be directly related to your problem.

Kathryn will conduct a full osteopathic examination and if necessary, clinical tests, this may involve diagnostic, orthopaedic or neurological tests, postural assessments and activities or exercises that will determine how best to manage your condition. The examination may include passive and active movements, such as the osteopath lifting your arms or legs.

Osteopathy takes a holistic approach to treatment, so your practitioner may look at other parts of your body, as well as the area that is troubling you. For example, if you have a sore knee, your osteopath may also look at your ankle, pelvis and back.

Osteopathy is a manual therapy, so hands-on treatment may include massage, stretching, repetitive movements, mobilisation and/or manipulation. Most osteopathic treatments are gentle and should not cause undue discomfort. If your injuries do require hands-on treatment of painful and tender areas, your osteopath will use care to make you as comfortable as possible.

Your osteopath may also provide education and advice to help you manage your condition between appointments. This may include giving you exercises to do at home or work.
