Our osteopathy clinic offers therapeutic assistance and advice for a range of conditions and needs.

The Clinic will be closed from 12 April until 17 May 2022 to accommodate student exams, Easter break and relocation activities.

When we are open, we offer in-person and telehealth sessions.

Osteopathic consultations may be helpful for:

  • back and neck pain
  • ergonomic-related issues
  • sporting injuries
  • a range of other complaints.

 

Book an osteopathy appointment

In addition to face-to-face osteopathy appointments, we are currently providing free 45 minute osteopathy telehealth consultations. These appointments are run virtually, via Zoom.

Our telehealth consultations with student osteopaths can assist with ergonomics, general health advice, rehabilitation, referral and resources.

Sessions are run by the student practitioners from our Master of Osteopathy cohort and supervised by accredited osteopaths.
