Brisbane Osteopathy Centre

‘Osteo’ refers to the Greek word ‘Osteon’ meaning structure of bone and perhaps structure in general, while ‘Pathy’ comes from ‘Pathos’ which refers to ‘Feeling or Suffering’ and hence pathology or disease. Ultimately Osteopathy is the understanding of ideal structural alignment within body, and the application of a hands-on practical process in the pursuit of remediating painful and dysfunctional conditions related to structural problems. Osteopathy in a nutshell:

  1. A person is the product of dynamic interaction between their body mind and external environment
  2. An inherent property of this dynamic interaction is the capacity of the individual for the maintenance of health and the recovery from disease.
  3. Many forces, both internal and external to the person, can challenge this inherent capacity and contribute to the onset of illness and disease.
  4. The structure of the body (muscles, joints, bones ETC) significantly influences the individual’s ability to restore this inherent capacity and therefore to resist disease processes.

We Treat Back Pain & Sciatica Brisbane

Back pain is the most common reason why people present to an osteopath. There are many factors that contribute to any single case of back pain. Your practitioner will assess many parts of your life and physical body to determine the cause, and develop a treatment plan that corrects the structural and alignment issues as well as the precipitating and maintaining factors.

Back Pain & Musculoskeletal Treatment

Osteopaths, Myotherapists, and Exercise Physiologits treat more than Back and Spinal Pain, they look at joints from the hands, wrists, to the elbows and shoulders, as well as the feet, ankles, knees and hips.

It is important to understand that the body is a system of reciprocal tension, movement, and function. With careful observation we may ascertain that poor movement in the wrist and elbow may affect function of the shoulder – it also makes sense to consider the position of the ribs that the shoulder sits upon – and further on, the alignment of the pelvic and feet keeping us upright.
