Getting You Back on Track
Here at Eastbay Osteopathy we strongly believe that health is a state of physical, mental and spiritual balance. With this holistic approach we also believe that our primary role as your complimentary health practitioner is to identify and improve any form of dysfunction in our patients’ musculoskeletal system. By doing so we also facilitate the function of other systems such as vascular and nervous systems as they have close interrelation with the musculoskeletal system. In occasions where we identify some form of dysfunction, unrelated to the musculoskeletal system, we always refer our patients to their GPs. Osteopaths in New Zealand are well trained (they do a five-year Masters degree) in identifying the sign and symptoms of dysfunctional pattern(s) in the body . In rare cases where our patients need deeper medical investigation/treatment we have a fantastic network with some of the best specialist doctors in New Zealand. This includes neurologists, orthopedic and spinal surgeons. Our goal is to get you back on track whilst making sure you receive the most appropriate intervention.
Your Consultation Session
A successful clinical outcome is dependent on a thorough case history and careful physical examination. This would give us a better understanding about various components that may be contributing to your complaints. After physical examination, your osteopath will discuss your treatment options with you. If you don’t like manipulative techniques, your practitioner will employ other gentle methods including articulation and massage. Acupuncture can also be a very effective method for you if you prefer more gentle treatment approach.
Long Treatment Sessions
Our appointments are 45 minutes for osteopathy and 60 minutes for acupuncture.. This allows our practitioners to fully dedicate their time to each patient. It means we can conduct a thorough examination and treatment of each individual. Most other providers will typically only spend 20-30 minutes with a patient. We do things differently as we know that each patient is unique and deserves the best quality service for their money.
At Eastbay Osteo we aim to improve your symptoms and reduce your pain in the short-time but we are also interested in highlighting factors that can improve to achieve long-term effects. We consider all aspect of your health and life style including age, physical activity, occupation and other health conditions. Improvements in postural elements and biomechanical factors can usually have significant health benefits. These modifiable components will be discussed with you during your treatment session. We also have a strong networking system with other health practitioners including musculoskeletal and orthopedic specialists, nutritionists and personal trainers. We will do our best to ensure you receive the most effective treatment plan.
Understanding your busy schedule, Eastbay Osteo offers after-work or late night appointments. This way, you get the most out of your treatments and therapy at hours that are most convenient to you. We are also open on Saturday mornings for your convenience.
