This event allows us to build better relationships with private health insurance industry. We also had the chance to flag our concerns with the Health Minister, Peter Dutton and request a further meeting. This work helps us build a better understanding of osteopathy by private health insurers and ensure consumers of osteopathic healthcare get better rebates and access.

Media Release: Lower back pain & Osteopathy

Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints seen by a GP or healthcare professional. It is estimated that over 80% of Australians will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. Lower back pain may be acute (new pain) or chronic (longstanding pain), and it can range from mild and annoying to severe and debilitating.

Osteopaths are health professionals who are highly trained to treat lower back pain. An osteopath will explain to you why your pain is present, assist to relieve it with manual therapy and identify any barriers to your recovery. During a consultation with an osteopath, your practitioner will first discuss your case and thoroughly assess your condition.

Osteopathy makes it to the World Cup!

The renowned Limburg osteopath Hub Westhovens from Eys, was flown in to the pre-world cup training camp of the Socceroos in Turkey. He will also be active at the FIFA World Cup to treat injured Australian internationals.
