Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a distinctive and complete system of health care, based on broad principles that "offer a way of thinking and acting in relation to questions of health and disease". Upon release of Mr. D'Urso's care an Osteopathic practitioner will dedicate treatment and healing to be of global relevance, rather than focusing on one system or body part. The theory behind being that to promote healthy functioning in a person, correcting mechanical imbalances within and between the structures of the body is required. By structures we mean the muscles, bones, ligaments, organs, and fascia.

Osteopaths are highly trained (University based 5 year double degree) practitioners who are able to diagnose, treat, and offer rehabilitation advice to patients who have recently completed care through Mr D'Urso. Following patients who undergo varying surgical procedures, it is imperative to resume a form of health care which aims to increase mobility and strength, whilst decreasing pain - Osteopathy can offer this immediately.


What should I expect from my Osteopath?


Upon visitation, an Osteopath will assess the patient using palpation, Orthopaedic tests and active and passive ranges of motion to determine their limitations. Treatment begins immediately and usually carries techniques such as soft tissue massage, articulation, adjustment manipulation, stretching and counter-strain.

Treatment is non-invasive and usually gentle, making it a viable option for patients who could be compromised post surgery or for children and the elderly. Patients who have had corrective surgery through Mr. D'Urso follow up to see an Osteopath to further support and quantify the changes, these specifically include muscle strength, joint mobility, pain perception and finally general well-being.
