Would Osteopathy work for me?
We believe Osteopathy has the potential to help everyone. We provide a service and treatment to help the individual find the most effective way forward for them.
What can I expect at my initial consultation?
Please bring in any x-rays, scans or other relevant medical records that you may already have.
During the course of the treatment the practitioner will gather a detailed history of your condition and the reason for your visit. There will be a physical examination of the problem area and the appropriate manual treatment will be applied. This will most likely include a range of techniques, including manipulation, soft tissue massage and postural/exercise advise.
What is the cost?
Eftpos, credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard and Amex are available.
Clinic Opening Hours
The Moonee Ponds Osteopathic Clinic is open from Monday to Friday and takes appointments from 9.00am to 6pm.
Hicaps- Private Health Insurance Rebates
The Moonee Ponds Osteopathic Clinic has the HICAPS facility which provides a fast and effective way of processing your claim. Following your consultation, your health fund card is swiped through the HICAPS terminal enabling you to receive your rebate on the spot. This avoides a separate trip to your private health fund branch. You simply pay the difference between the full fee for the treatment and the amount rebated from your health fund. Please remember to bring your private health card along on your visit.
Private health funds provide varying levels of cover for Osteopathy. Contact your health fund for full details of the cover provided.
