When it comes to manual treatment and manual therapy for musculoskeletal disorders in the whole body, our osteopaths and medical doctors provide expert care. However, in cases where osteopathy is not suitable for your condition, we will advise you to consult your general practitioner (GP) for a referral to a specialist.
If you have any queries about the suitability of osteopathy for your needs, please contact us to speak with one of our osteopathic physicians to know more about our osteopathic treatments. Our dedicated osteopaths will personally address your concerns and provide the necessary guidance for your osteopathic treatment, manual therapy and/or osteopathic medicine.
Pain Relief Brisbane
At Brisbane West Osteopathy we aim to ease your pain while also diagnosing and treating any underlying conditions. We do this by using a range of techniques including massage, stretching, manipulation and a number of very gentle techniques. We have a particular interest in treating patients with complex, chronic pain. In fact, we find many of our first-time patients see us after experiencing years and years of chronic pain. And many of these patients report a significant improvement in their pain levels after treatment.
For us as osteopaths, providing pain relief to Brisbane patients is immensely rewarding. To that end, we always work with you to give you the most comfortable and relaxing experience possible. We find many patients only require 3-5 sessions with us to experience the benefits.
Who Can Benefit From Our Osteopathic Treatment?
We cater to patients of all ages and physical capabilities, including pregnant women, children, older adults, athletes, and individuals with disabilities for our osteopathic treatment and lymphatic systems.
Our clinic welcomes everyone, and our musculoskeletal system treatment approach is tailored to each individual’s specific needs and muscle tension. The initial consultation with an osteopathic physician will map the musculoskeletal framework and understand your overall health, checking if your body systems are affected by poor posture, or if you have a medical history or clinical evidence.
Our osteotherapy includes techniques based on the patient’s condition, age, musculoskeletal framework, overall health, body systems, and treatment preferences. While some patients are comfortable with various osteopathic treatment and osteopathic techniques, others prefer gentler approaches. For children and babies, our osteopathic physician exclusively utilise very gentle osteopathic techniques to ensure the nervous system well-being.
What We Do Differently
We aim to identify the underlying issues causing your pain, as opposed to simply managing your symptoms.
How do we do this? With the aid of a custom diagnostic tool Dr Enevoldsen developed, which he named Osteo Diagnostic Platform (ODP). Dr Mirhashemi subsequently collaborated with Dr Enevoldsen to refine this tool. We follow osteopathic principles to provide a non invasive manual therapy with healthcare professionals licensed with Osteopathy Australia.
ODP is based on a holistic understanding of biomechanics. It focuses on diagnosing issues within two key regions: the neck and the pelvis. Many osteopathic physician and healthcare professions fail to understand the importance of the pelvis in overall biomechanical functioning. However, just like a building, your body needs a strong foundation. Specifically, the pelvis is like your body’s foundation. When the bones, muscles and ligaments in your pelvis don’t function correctly, your spine makes adjustments to cope.
These maladaptive adjustments are what causes your pain, discomfort and/or impaired mobility. Luckily, once these issues are identified, they can be treated with Osteotherapy and osteopathic medicine.
Osteotherapy is a specialised branch of internal medicine that focuses on promoting holistic well-being and offering alternative solutions to traditional healthcare practices. At our clinic, we firmly believe in the power of osteopathy to improve the lives of our patients and enhance their overall health.
One of the key benefits of osteotherapy is its ability to help individuals avoid invasive hip or knee operations. By employing gentle and precise physical manipulation techniques, our skilled osteopaths can address musculoskeletal issues and promote natural healing. This approach not only alleviates pain but also enhances the functioning of the lymphatic systems and stimulates the body’s innate capacity to heal itself.
As professionals in the osteopathic profession, our practitioners adhere to the highest standards set by the General Osteopathic Council and Osteopathy board. They undergo rigorous training and continuously expand their knowledge through ongoing education and professional development. This dedication enables them to provide exceptional care to patients, incorporating their prior learning and expertise into every treatment session.
Osteotherapy is a valuable health profession that collaborates seamlessly with other healthcare providers, including general practitioners and complementary therapists. By working together, we ensure comprehensive and well-rounded care for our patients. Whether you are seeking treatment for a specific condition, such as sports injuries, or aiming to optimise your overall well-being and reduce pain, our osteopaths are dedicated to understanding your unique needs and delivering personalised treatment plan that promote long-term health, vitality, and connective tissue proper functioning.
