What is the Sports & Spinal difference?
Sports & Spinal Albury Wodonga and Corowa Osteopaths provide a client centred, evidence-based approach to each individual client that is unrivalled in our region. Our Osteos spend time listening to you and your story, before assessing your movement and then specifically selecting suitable hands-on techniques from their vast range of skills, including soft tissue massage, stretching and joint mobilisation. All techniques are carefully chosen to suit you, the individual, with the aim of helping you recover quickly.
But we don’t stop there. Client education is always at the forefront of our treatment. We want you to really understand what can be done by you, to help increase injury healing times.
We appreciate that every person is different and we treat you that way. We do all this as part of our commitment to help make Albury Wodonga the happiest, healthiest place to live in the world.
Our main point of difference from other Osteopaths in Albury Wodonga & Corowa
Start to Finish Care
At Sports & Spinal we wanted to break the multi-disciplinary mold. Too often we hear of clients being pushed from one modality to the next, bouncing back and forth like a yo-yo, sometimes in the same facility, as they progress through their recovery. We believe that your therapist should have the skills to get you back to doing what you love, as soon as possible, so we enable our therapists to be with you every step of the way.
Osteopaths are highly skilled therapists
who can aid in the treatment of:
- Back and neck pain
- Headaches & migraines
- Rotator cuff tears and bursitis
- Shoulder pain
- Hip & groin pain
- Tendinopathies such as tennis elbow
- Pain during pregnancy
- Concussion management
What to expect in your consult?
Your initial consultation will involve a comprehensive assessment where we ascertain your relevant past history, including previous injuries and medical history, followed by a physical exam to determine not only the diagnosis but also find the root cause of your problem. This will be discussed with you and a treatment plan will be formulated to accommodate your needs.
The treatment itself will vary from individual to individual, but will often include a combination of hands on therapies, dry needling, taping, advice, exercise prescription as well as other options.
Osteopaths are covered by most Private Health insurance schemes. To be sure you are covered please consult your insurance policy. We have HICAPs facilities available for those with Private Health so you can automatically claim your treatment and only have to pay the gap.
No referral is necessary to come to our clinic.
Osteopaths like to be thorough and hence our consults tend to take half an hour on average.
It is advised that you arrive between 5 and 10 minutes prior to your initial consult as you are required to fill out a new patient and informed consent forms before treatment can commence.
