Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.
Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, osteopaths can identify important types of dysfunction in your body. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues.
We provide osteopathic treatment to people in Greenacre, Bankstown, Punchbowl, Strathfield, and across Sydney.
In Australia, osteopaths are university trained in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and osteopathic techniques. Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions which require medical referral. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.
Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and the Medicare Enhanced Primary Care scheme. Osteopaths are registered providers for workers’ compensation schemes, motor accident insurers and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
Greenacre Sports Medicine Clinic retains the service of two qualified and experienced osteopaths – Ali Youssef and Houda Omran, each with over ten years of experience helping clients with their pain and injuries. They work with each patient as a partner in their health, responding to the patient’s goals, wishes and physical limitations and developing a tailored treatment plan that meets the needs of each individual. Every body is unique in the way it’s built, so trust us to take a unique approach to yours to ensure you can perform at your very best.
