Moonee Valley Osteopathy has a well established reputation as a provider of exceptional osteopathic care since 1996, established by Dr Glen Bales.
Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit. We utilise different hands on techniques and exercises to restore function and movement. We treat common conditions such as headaches, joint sprains, muscle and soft tissue injuries, RSI and overuse injuries, back and neck pain as well as other musculoskeletal injuries. Complicated, chronic conditions are a common presentation in our clinic.
We also offer dry needling and cupping!
Our new Radial Shockwave machine offers state of the art treatment of chronic injuries that are resistant or non-responsive to traditional manual therapy and can be a great alternative to surgery for common tendon and soft tissue pathologies. Shockwave can be utilised to treat chronic pain, chronic tendon injuries and calcific tendonitis, myofascial trigger points, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis and many other chronic conditions. We are able to fine tune the shockwave machine to the individual for specific effective treatment.
Cupping has been used for over 3000 years, originating in Chinese cultures. It offers a number of benefits to support the body’s healing process. Cupping helps the body by releasing muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and other structures. It also promotes circulation in the body which improves lymphatic drainage and removal of toxins and aids in recovery.
Dry needling is a treatment that uses fine needles to deactivated and release tightened spots or 'trigger points' within the muscle. This technique uses similar needles as those used in acupuncture. By releasing these trigger points the aim is to improve nerve conduction, blood supply, and the health of connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments. The main goal is to reduce muscle pain and spasm, while enhancing joint functioning through improved range of motion and circulation. By facilitating the body's self-healing mechanisms, dry needling aims to optimise your overall well-being.
