Mitcham Osteopathy

Every day, thousands of Australian’s live with joint, muscular or even nerve pain and believe that it’s just a part of life. This is a common view on musculoskeletal pain, however, this view is often wrong. At Anderson Health Osteopathy Mitcham, our doctors undergo a minimum of five years of study at some of the best universities in Australia to be able to accurately diagnose pain, injuries and health issues that people present to the clinic with. Our Mitcham Osteopaths will then use their knowledge to assess and treat patients for musculoskeletal pain, from back pain, to headaches and everything in between. The osteos will use a range of different techniques, including but not limited to adjustments, soft tissue, massage, dry needling and cupping, to treat these complaints.

At Anderson Health Osteopathy Mitcham, we offer a range of different services such as same day appointments, late and early appointments, a primary practitioner (no referral required), on site parking, on site private insurance rebates, weekend appointments, postural and workplace assessments and much, much more.
