OSTEOPATHY

Originally from Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Allison completed undergraduate training with a Bachelor of Applied Science (complimentary medicine) and graduated with her Masters of Osteopathy from RMIT University, Melbourne in 2014.  During her time at university, Allison completed an internship with Sportmed in Mumbai, India where she worked under world-class orthopedic surgeons, and coached gymnastics to children and adults of all ages and abilities in Melbourne.

Allison is grateful that she stumbled upon Osteopathy and gets to help people achieve their health and wellness goals to live a full life. Allison’s treatments vary depending on the client, ranging from direct techniques to more gentle indirect techniques. Whether a treatment is for an injury or prevention, she believes in inspiring the client to be an active part of their own recovery.

 

After recently becoming a Mother, Allison understands the demands placed on the body, mind and spirit during pregnancy and post-partum, which has spurred on a passion to support Mothers.  In order to provide the best care to her patients, she will continue to participate regularly in professional development.  

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopaths focus on your neuro-musculoskeletal system - the bones, muscles, nerves and other tissues that support your body and control its movements.

Each person, condition and injury is unique, so osteopathic treatments and interventions will vary from person to person.

Osteopathy combines exercise prescription, movement and lifestyle advice, and hands-on treatment (this can include massage, stretching, repetitive movements, mobilisation and/or manipulation).

What can I expect in my consultation?

At your first appointment and in any subsequent session(s), you may receive any of the below osteopathic treatments following the clinical assessment conducted by your osteopath.

  • Musculoskeletal and nervous system assessments – Your osteopath will use a range of tools to identify what might be happening in the body.

  • Manual therapy – A range of ‘hands-on’ techniques that may give relief from musculoskeletal pain, discomfort and may help tissues in the body.

  • Clinical exercise programs – Activities and movement strategies for use at home, work or in other settings. Exercise may help you return to activities you enjoy, for example after an injury or surgery.

  • Body function assessments - Movement, postural, positioning advice and ergonomic assessments.
