How we work as a team
A straightforward acute neck pain or acute back pain problem can easily be sorted by our registered osteopaths in a couple of visits. However, if it is long-standing or more complex and has become chronic, it may require our multidisciplinary approach to sort it out more quickly and thoroughly.
Ask your practitioner if your condition would be helped more quickly by seeing another allied Healthcare practitioner. We find that in complex situations, it is a case of one plus one equalling three, in terms of the improvement in response and excellent results are achieved.
We have regular meetings to help resolve more complex cases. All our osteopaths have centralised medical notes, so if your practitioner is away, you can see another osteopath and still have continuity of care.
Our mission is to promote health and well-being through diagnosis and treatment based on the principles of Complementary and Integrated Medicine.
At City Osteopaths, practitioners are members of our respective professional organisations and adhere to our Codes of Ethics.
Our promise is to provide you with the highest quality integrated healthcare, drawing on our many years of university and post-graduate training and subsequent years of study and clinical practice. We consistently work and apply our skills to help you get back to health.
