St Kilda Osteopathy
Situated only two blocks from Fitzroy Street in St Kilda, Middle Park Osteopathic Clinic is very conveniently located for the residents of both St Kilda West and St Kilda.
Tram #16 will take you to the clinic from St Kilda Road, Melbourne, and from the other direction from Carlisle Street in St Kilda and Balaclava. If you are driving, you will find plenty of free parking space outside the clinic, at 63 Park Street, St Kilda West.
Practice owner Georgina Fisher has lived in both St Kilda and South Melbourne for most of her life and has a strong affection for and understanding of the community. Her clinic has been set up to provide total care for local residents, from newborns to the elderly. Specialist services are available for sportspeople and mothers and babies.
Our Osteopathic team, all former athletes, have a particular interest in injuries acquired from sports ranging from football to gymnastics. We know how frustrating and debilitating an injury can be to someone involved in sport, whether professionally or simply as a means of keeping fit. So we are well equipped to assess the cause and source of your problem and organise a treatment schedule that will get you back up and running as fast as possible.
St Kilda parents who want their newborn to get the best possible start in life can bring them for an assessment, particularly if they have had a difficult birth. The baby will be carefully examined for any problems and, if necessary, prescribed a course of gentle massage or other appropriate therapy. Osteopathic practices can also help mothers-to-be to keep themselves in optimum health in the lead-up to birth and afterwards.
Poor posture is a problem with older children, often arising from hours spent at a desk studying or hunched over a computer. Carrying heavy school bags adds to the problem. We can assess the extent of the damage done and work to realign the body, easing any pain and helping prevent problems in the future.
Middle Park Osteopathic Clinic’s warm and welcoming atmosphere will put you immediately at ease. Our staff will take the time to talk to you about your health and any problems you may have. We then devise a treatment plan tailored to your particular needs. You will be kept informed at every point of your treatment, and encouraged to discuss any queries you have about your treatment. As part of your therapy plan, you may be given exercises to continue at home. Our aim is to resolve your health issues as soon as we can.
Our staff treat general problems such as neck and back pain, headaches, and other aches and pains. We work on the spine but can also address pain and injuries in the joints such as feet, knees, shoulders, elbows and the jaw. We also have experience in specialist areas, including work injuries. Treatment may include massage, manipulation and stretching.
Middle Park Osteopathic Clinic is at 63 Park Road, St Kilda West. We are open between 7:30am and 9pm Monday to Friday from 7:30am until 5pm on Saturdays, offering a service to office and business workers, schoolchildren and other people who have heavy demands on their time.
The clinic has both credit card/eftpos facilities and HICAPS, which enables you to process your private health rebates on the spot for convenience.
