People shouldn’t feel like they have to put up with joint and muscle pain during the current health crisis, according to the team at Casey Osteopathic Health Service.
Owner Dr Spyro Antoniou encouraged patients to visit the Beaconsfield based practice where they will be treated in a sanitised, hygienic environment with staff maintaining social distancing and other precautions where practicable.
Dr Antoniou and his team are working hard with other allied health professionals to ensure as many people can be treated as possible without adding extra burdens on general practice and hospitals.
Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.
Treatment is suitable for all ages, including children, the elderly and pregnant women.
Osteopaths use techniques that include soft-tissue massage, mobilisation, stretching, articulations and gentle manipulation. Osteopaths can advise on posture, stretching and strengthening programs.
The practice has five experienced osteopaths who are fully qualified and have gone through extensive training. The clinic’s myotherapist holds an Advanced Diploma and is also a qualified remedial massage therapist.
“The practice takes a holistic approach, which means that osteopaths look for the cause of the problem and don’t just treat the symptoms,” Dr Antoniou said.
“We are here to help during this Covid-19 problem. Our staff understand people’s concerns and we don’t want people living in discomfort during this time which is stressful enough without the added burden of pain.”
