Bay City Health Group - Osteopathy & Pilates Geelong: Postural Assessment

What is an Osteopath?

Osteopathy is not just another type of manual therapy. It is based around a unique (but quite logical) philosophy of assessing, diagnosing and treating the CAUSE behind pain & dysfunction - rather than just the symptom. Osteopaths are highly trained, Masters qualified (5 years at Uni) practitioners that use a combination of techniques including but not limited to: joint manipulation (HVLA), massage, stretching, muscle activation, articulation, PNF / MET, strengthening and MFR. As Osteopaths are registered through AHPRA, you can claim Osteopathy on your private health insurance (provided you have extras cover).

Bay City Health Group - Osteopathy & Pilates Geelong: Exercise Rehab

Exercise Rehab

Exercise Rehab is performed in a private or small group setting, where you are guided through select movements and exercises by a registered health practitioner. The exercises prescribed to you are determined based on an assessment in your first session (progress will be monitored weekly) and your goals/needs. At Bay City Health our exercise rehab is taken by Osteopaths. A consultation with any Osteopath in the clinical setting is eligible for health fund rebates. The idea of exercise rehab is to guide you through the various stages - from assisted, isolated movements to larger whole body resisted movements. You don't have to be injured or in pain to participate in these sessions - it is just as important to train your body with the right movements to help prevent injuries in the first place!
