According to the Australian Health Insurance Association, Osteopathy is a LONG way ahead of other health professionals in terms of growth over the past 5 years.
Well, it's very easy to "float out own boat" so to speak - but here are some possible reasons why:
After all, the anatomy (compared to other professions) we learn is the same. The biochemistry is the same. The physiology is the same. The "building blocks" are essentially the SAME.
The simplest explanation we can give you is this.
It's how we look at you.
We don't just look at your spine.
We don't just look at your sore wrist if you have a sore wrist.
We don't just treat muscles.
We don't just treat bones.
We treat YOU.
All of this sounds a bit airy-fairy - but in fact, we're adhering to the most current evidence based practice theory.
Osteopathy is a manual medicine that involves hands-on treatment and uses many techniques such as soft tissue therapy, articulation of joints, strengthening techniques, and manipulations of the spine and joints.
It is a gentle and safe manual therapy that works with the patient to restore the body to a state of natural balance.
Osteopathy differs from other manual therapies in that it treats the cause of dysfunction rather than treating just the symptoms.
Osteopathy incorporates biomechanics to analyse the way the body is functioning with a condition, and looks to treat adjacent areas that are likewise affected. This is the holistic “whole body” philosophy that osteopathy prides itself upon.
If you haven't seen an Osteopath yet - you probably should.
