Osteopathy

At the Camberwell Osteopathic Clinic we see a vast array of musculoskeletal complaints. These range from the common lower back pain or disc injuries, to the more unusual presentations like ankle pain or elbow discomfort. We treat the entire body!

Here we will be discussing some of the various complaints that we see at the clinic. We’ll discuss what the injury is, how it commonly occurs, what we as osteopaths would do during a treatment and then discuss what management would be prescribed. We believe that education is key and if you have a very clear understanding of the complaint and what the process is, then your chances of full injury recovery are high.
