We Are Osteopaths Who Genuinely Care
Our Osteopaths in Glen Iris are here to help you. Our Osteopathy sessions offer a safe an effective way to treat your injuries, relieve your pain and increase your movement. We always ensure we spend 100% of our time with our focus solely on you, never leaving the treatment room to attend to someone else. We want to hear your story, we want to get to know you and what makes you tick… so you can get back to doing the things you love to do safely and quickly. Be that walking the dog in the park, attending your favourite gym class, or simply playing with the kids pain free.
You’ll notice the Equilibrium Sports and Spinal Clinic difference from the minute you book your appointment to the moment you leave your first session. We treat you like family.

What to expect at your first Osteopathic session:
Initially a comprehensive case history is taken. Here we can get to know you, and learn about your pain and injury. This helps us identify the cause of your pain and allows us to establish a diagnosis. We will ALWAYS ensure you understand whats going on, in language you understand.
Your Osteopath will ensure you have crystal clear roadmap detailing your management and treatment plan. Your personal and unique guide to better health and wellbeing.
In the majority of cases you will experience a reduction in pain and intensity of your symptoms following your first hands on Osteopathy treatment session

What attracts many to Osteopathy, apart from its effectiveness, is that it does not include the use of any drugs, and also because it is a manual therapy that can improve the overall health of an individual over time. Osteopathy achieves this by manipulating and strengthening the whole musculoskeletal system with a focus on the whole body, not just the area that is painful.
Your Osteopath uses what is termed ‘manual medicine’ meaning that they will use their hands to diagnose and treat you with the aim of balancing your body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. It is often used together with conventional medical treatments, which is why it is classed as a complementary therapy.
Your Osteopath will spend a lot of time and expertise assessing the mobility of your muscles and joints and your problem areas. Your Osteo will test the way body functions as a whole, checking your joints, tendons and ligaments and muscles as well as the function of your nervous system, your circulation, and internal organs. Your Osteo will also ask you questions about your health and lifestyle and take a detailed history of your health and the condition that brought you to the consultation, and then a personalised Osteopathy treatment plan will be devised.
Osteopathy targets the underlying cause of your condition. Once we have identified your problem we set out to ease your pain, restore movement and improve body function. So come in and experience our Osteopaths, you wont be disappointed.
