What Is Osteopathy?

Welcome to the transformative world of Osteopathy at Anderson Health, where we honour the legacy of Dr Andrew Taylor Still’s groundbreaking philosophy since 1872. Osteopathy is not just about alleviating symptoms; it’s a profound belief in the unity of body, mind, and spirit, empowering your body’s innate ability to self-regulate, self-heal, and maintain health.

While conventional Osteopathy often focuses on temporary relief, our approach transcends the norm. At Anderson Health, our Osteopaths and Chiropractors collaborate to offer a Health Action Plan that goes beyond quick fixes.

Skilled Practitioners

An Osteopath is a doctor who focuses on the physical adjustments of the tissues, muscles, and bones. Like Chiropractors, they take a holistic view of the body, rather than focusing on a specific part or symptom.

An Osteopath uses rational treatment based upon an understanding of the body’s unity, self-regulation and the interrelationship of the body’s structure and function.

A Different Approach

Considered an “alternative” health service, many Osteopaths concentrate on adjustments soft tissues through stretching and massage. At Anderson Health Chiropractic & Osteopathy, we provide a different approach, with a specific focus on a patient’s spine and nervous system. All of the body’s systems work together with the spine and nervous system at the centre coordinating your body’s function and movement. By focusing on the central system within the body our aim is to help patients move well and feel better.

Dr Elysse decided to change her approach, working solely on the spine and nervous system, after noticing the Chiropractic clients in her practice were getting incredible results in being proactive with their health and were able to really reach their health goals, while her clients where returning to the practice only when they were reacting to symptoms.

Diving deeper into how the nervous system functions and influences all elements of the body, Dr Elysse explains how her approach includes supporting patients to manage health conditions throughout the body where the nerve supply is not as strong. Patients may seek osteopathic support for a variety of reasons inclusing sinus issues, digestive issues, cardiovascular issues and so much more.

What to Expect

The new client process is the same as for chiropractic clients. You’ll receive a thorough initial history and examination, a postural and neurological assessment, imaging if necessary or required, and a follow up appointment with world class feedback, a tailored care plan and adjustment if clinically indicated.

A typical care plan will depend on your health goals and the results from your individual case presentation found by our doctors, at this point the doctor can design a specific course of action to allow for proper care.

Remember, healing and correction take time and we want you to get the most from your care at Anderson Health Chiropractic & Osteopathy.
