What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a detailed, holistic, hands-on physical therapy for a wide range of conditions. It is a growing profession that is internationally recognised and is an evidence-based and evidence-informed complementary medical practice. Osteopathic treatment can include soft-tissue massage, stretching, joint articulation, manipulation (if appropriate), exercise therapy and education on ergonomics, posture, exercise, breathing patterns, diet and lifestyle. Our Osteopaths are all a minimum of 5-year university educated and are all members of Osteopathy Australia (OA).

What is Paediatric Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a gentle hands-on, holistic therapy that focuses on movement and function. The subtle palpation focussed technique is great for babies because they can't tell us what's wrong. It's also great for older kids whose bodies grow and change. Dr Adam Pitt (Osteopath) is a postgraduate paediatric trained and experienced Osteopath who treats babies, children and teenagers for a range of conditions. Effective, early treatment can prevent other problems from occurring. With gentle treatment, exercises and advice for parents, we can help with a lot of problems that children can experience.
