Osteopaths understand the close relationship between the structures (and position) of the body’s parts and its function (or lack of). Osteopaths consider the body as a whole and use this in their diagnosis and treatment of a problem. Osteopaths use a combination of specific orthopaedic and osteopathic examinations to create an accurate diagnosis, which can be treated accordingly. Osteopathy is safe gentle and effective and use a range of techniques such as: joint mobilization, joint manipulation, cranial-sacral techniques, muscle energy techniques, myofacial release, trigger point therapy, visceral osteopathy and dry needling.
Our Osteopaths, Dr Erin Barnes and Dr Paul Purchase are passionate about providing quality osteopathic care to people of all ages suffering from a wide variety of other ailments such as lower back pain, neck pain and headaches. Erin and Paul follow the osteopathic principle that the body is a unit and that every part of the person should be considered when trying to find the true cause of a person’s discomfort or pain.
