Want to know why the first thing an osteopath does is listen?

Difference between osteopath and chiropractor

A treatment plan that is tailored to meet your needs. You are, after all, unique; so shouldn’t your treatment be too?

You’re walking your dog. Obedient though he normally is, he catches sight of a rabbit and tears off after it, without even a moment’s thought. During the chase, nothing else seems to exist. In his doggy world, that bunny is everything.

A random analogy, maybe, but it’s certainly relevant to health care. After all, you don’t want to visit a health professional and have them zero in exclusively on the pain and chase after it just like man’s best friend would a rabbit.

What you need is someone who’s prepared to look a little deeper and longer before leaping into action. You want someone to sit back and consider your symptoms in the context of your whole body.

That’s why the first thing we do at Relinque Sports and Spinal Group, is listen. We want to hear about your symptoms and how they are affecting your daily life. We’ll conduct a biomechanical assessment and talk to you about your medical history.

We’ll leave no stone unturned when it comes to exploring all the factors that may be contributing to your pain. Why? Because we want to be sure about the root cause of your problems so we can perform the right type of treatment.

Only then will we design a treatment plan and tailor it to meet your needs. You are, after all, unique; so shouldn’t your treatment be too?

From there, we’ll work with you to establish realistic goals that we will work with you to achieve, and we’ll prescribe home exercises designed to complement the hands-on therapy that you’ll receive in our comfortable and friendly Ivanhoe clinic. Throughout, our aim is to provide you with immediate relief from pain and injury whilst working towards long lasting outcomes and rehabilitation.

So if you want to know more about the treatment process we have developed over the past 20 years, why not give us a call on 03 9499 9644.
