What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a regulated, primary health care system that uses manual, non-invasive methods to treat a wide range of problems.

Although the focus of osteopathic treatment is on the musculoskeletal system, osteopaths also deal with issues affecting the digestive, circulatory and nervous systems. 

Osteopaths use visual assessment and a gentle hands-on approach to diagnose problems, paying special attention to the way your body moves. The treatment combines, massage, movement and manipulation, focused on rebalancing the structure and function of the body. There’s also a strong emphasis on providing practical advice about lifestyle, work and ergonomics to help prevent problems in future.

Osteopathic treatment aims to relieve pain, improve function and promote healing. It takes a holistic view of the body, considering all possible factors that could be contributing to a specific complaint. 

Every registered osteopath trains for 4-6 years and undergoes over 1,000 hours of training in osteopathic techniques – resulting in an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and the musculoskeletal system.


Do I need a referral?

There’s no need for a referral when visiting an osteopath at Freedom Care Clinics. However, you may want to let your doctor know so that your medical records are kept up to date. 

With your permission, your osteopath may forward details of your care to your doctor. It’s also possible to request
a letter for your employer if required. 

The only time a referral might be necessary is if you plan to use private medical insurance such as, AXA, AVIVA, WPA, Vitality or BUPA.

Copy of Acupuncture


Acupuncture is an effective treatment for pain and inflammation caused by a range of conditions. The treatment involves inserting fine needles into the skin to stimulate sensory nerves and muscles in the body. At Freedom Care Clinics we offer standalone acupuncture treatments as well as incorporating it into some of our osteopathy, physiotherapy and chiropractic treatment plans.


Low-level laser therapy

Also known as cold laser or LLLT, low-level laser treatment therapy is used to aid tissue repair, nerve regeneration and bone formation. It’s often used as an alternative to acupuncture and aims to speed up the healing process for fractures and soft tissue injuries.


Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)

ESWT is a relatively new but clinically proven treatment for pain management. The treatment uses audible, high-energy sound waves directed at problem areas of the body to help accelerate the healing process, stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation.
