We are trained to consider the health of the whole body and focus on preventive healthcare which does not just fight illness but also aids in avoiding it.
Australia (PRWEB UK) 24 April 2013
The Australian Osteopathic Association (AOA) will hold its annual Osteopathy Awareness Week from 14 - 20 April, 2013 to increase awareness of Osteopathy within the community.
Osteopaths collectively treat over 50,000 people a week, generate over $250 million in the economy, plus Osteopathy has been practiced for over 100 years in Australia.*
“We are excited about this opportunity to showcase our profession within the community”, says Dr Daniel Stasiuk, Osteopath at Mosaic Health. “Osteopaths currently have to undertake a five-year university master’s degree in order to achieve registration in Australia. As such, those are trained to consider the health of the whole body and focus on preventive healthcare which does not just fight illness but also aids in avoiding it.”
Preventive medicine and Osteopathy are significant alternatives when it comes to identifying the cause of pain or injury and develop a safe and effective treatment plan to manage pain, so people can make the most of their active lives. As Dr Stasiuk continues, “Most people, regardless of age or gender, will suffer from back or neck pain, headaches, sport injuries, stiffness or pain at some time in their busy lives. And Osteopaths treat more than you think, many patients have shoulder problems, RSI and posture problems, all resulting from their daily routine and work life. For instance, Tennis Elbow is frequently caused by repetitive use of a computer keyboard and mouse!”
Mosaic Health invites all the community to a free workplace assessment during National Osteopathy Awareness Week – or go to http://www.melbourneosteo.com.au to learn more about how you can get fit for work through Osteopathy.
Mosaic Health is a health care centre located in St Kilda. Mosaic Health focuses on improving the health and wellbeing of its community by providing high quality Osteopathy care for all ages.
