Melbourne, Australia (PressExposure) February 29, 2012 -- Melbourne Osteo Health, a leading Melbourne based Osteopathic clinic has recently opened a new location right in the heart of Fitz Roy, inside the landmark Goodlife gym on Johnston street. Dr. Della Buttigieg is the principal osteopath at Melbourne Osteo health and also lectures in neuroscience and Osteopathy at Victoria University, Australia's leading Osteopathic course.
"The difference with Melbourne Osteo Health is that we use a combination of the latest evidence-based research, combined with 130 years of Osteopathic principles and techniques. This way we get a good understanding of what's happening with our patient's bodies and what the underlying cause of a problem is. Once this is established, we can move on to using safe and effective techniques to improve the symptoms of a patient and help to prevent further episodes with exercise prescription." Claims Dr. Buttigieg.
"I think something that sets us apart is that we try to get to the bottom of our patients' problems so that we can fix them where possible or educate the patients so that they are better in control of their condition. This leads to a better outcome for the patient."
Osteopathy has been practised in Australia for over 100 years, initially with practitioners trained in the US and UK. Since the introduction of an Osteopathic university course at RMIT in 1987, Osteopathy has exploded in Australia and today over 50,000 people a week see an Osteopath.
Because of the strong connection to the highly accredited Osteopathic degree at Victoria University, Melbourne Osteo Health is at the fore-front of new research coming out of the Osteopathic world, and also from other allied health areas including physiotherapy and in neuroscience.
"It's a really exciting time to be part of the profession." Says Dr. Michael O'Connor, an associate Osteopath at Melbourne Osteo Health. "And it's because Osteopathy is gaining so much momentum that we've been able to open a second clinic in Fitzroy in the Goodlife gym on Johnston street."
For those who work, the Fitzroy Melbourne Osteo Health clinic is open late some days and also on Saturdays.
