West Perth Osteopathy offers a unique system of medicine that treats the cause of the problem rather than just it’s symptoms. Many of our patients complain of pain, loss of well-being, a sense of restlessness or poor concentration, allergies, decreased energy levels and other health issues. These symptoms are warning signs of dysfunction and disease. Using an holistic system of diagnosis, we aim to detect changes in the body in order to alleviate symptoms and restore function and well-being.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs all function together as a holistic unit, but also consider the effects of gravity on posture, musculoskeletal injuries, fluid dynamics of the body and function of the nervous system. We also recognise how body structure can influence the function of organ systems involved in breathing, digestion, energy production, waste removal, immunity and reproduction. All of these elements are important for maintaining good health in body, mind and spirit.
What is Massage Therapy?
One of the fastest growing fields of health care today, massage is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Using their hands, a massage therapist may treat their patient, as well as detect physical and emotional problems, through palpating the patient’s body to determine the correct form of remedial treatment.
What is Dry Needling Therapy?
Dry Needling Therapy involves the use of acupuncture needles to assist in the treatment and management of muscular pain. Treatment outcomes may be optimised when Dry Needling is used in conjunction with Osteopathic treatment.
What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a preventative practice which assesses and assists with conditions of both body and mind. Effective in the treatment of both acute and chronic health conditions, naturopathic treatment may include nutritional medicine, dietary & lifestyle advice, herbal medicine, and vitamin/mineral supplementation. Because of its holistic nature, individuals of all ages, with all varieties of health issues and conditions, may benefit from naturopathic care.
