Back Into Action Osteopathic Group Est 1999

 

Back into Action Osteopathic Group, formally Watsonia Osteopathic Group was established in 1999 by Matthew Henderson.          We offer a range of manual therapies including osteopathy, podiatry and personal training.

 

Osteopathy is a holistic manual medicine that helps in the recovery from a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions.

Osteopathy recognises the link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. It focuses on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulatory system, connective tissue and internal organs function as a unit, and how all these parts are interconnected. For example, a structural problem in the body can affect mobility and function, and can lead to another problem elsewhere in the body.

Osteopathic treatment involves a wide range of hands-on techniques from stretching, deep tissue massage, manipulation and/or mobilization of specific joints. The treatment may also involve exercise prescription and ergonomic or postural advice, to help manage the condition between the treatments.

In Australia, osteopaths are government registered practitioners who complete a minimum of 5 years university training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis, and osteopathic techniques. As primary care practitioners, osteopaths are trained to recognize when medical referral is needed.
