Answers to common questions


Does osteopathy work with modern medicine?

Osteopathy works well with modern medicine. Colac Osteopathic Clinic embraces the best medical care available and as professional practitioners we will always refer patients elsewhere when better treatment options are available. Likewise we often assist patients treated by other medical disciplines while they are recovering from surgery or during rehabilitation.

How will I feel after treatment?

During treatment your osteopath will diagnose and correct mechanical imbalances and restrictions, so typically after treatment you will feel more energetic and better balanced with increased mobility. If you suffer from a chronic or acutely inflamed problem it is possible that the massage and mobilisation may cause some post treatment soreness that will normally pass within a couple of days.
