Tell us about your situation and based on your answers we will tailor the best way to get the relief or assistance you need, right here, right now.

OUCH!!! LOOKS LIKE YOU NEED OSTEOPATHY ASAP!!

You’re in luck! Since 2010 we have delivered over 25,172 treatments for people who were in pain or injured.

Our assessments and treatments have been refined over many years by our osteopaths who have decades of experience. We deliver real differential diagnosis so we can get to the underlying cause of your condition, followed by personalised results based treatments and functional training designed to move you from being in pain to being in control of your health.

LET’S ROCK! STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING CAN HELP YOU TAKE YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

We have worked with professional athletes, sports teams, olympians, gym goers and weekend warriors to improve their performance.

Our osteos are dual qualified as both osteopaths and strength and conditioning coaches. This enables us to integrate our knowledge of the body and our understanding of how and why injuries occur with movement assessment and exercise prescription to ensure you get the most out of training.

You’ll be provided with a highly personalised exercise program and 1on1 coaching by some of the most experienced and educated osteopathic strength and conditioning coaches in Melbourne. 

More than just straight out performance, your strength and conditioning program will be created with the additional function of addressing any flexibility, mobility and instability issues to get you moving better and reduce your risk of injury. Your personalised exercise program will dynamically evolve as you improve in your 1on1 coaching sessions.

THE ROAD TO RECOVERY STARTS WITH EXERCISE REHAB.

We will develop a clear and structured plan that outlines what you need to do to rehabilitate your injuries then support you with 1on1 coaching and osteopathy.

Our exercise rehabilitation consults are ideal for those individuals who have been diagnosed with specific injuries and require a pathway to return to everyday activities, get back to work or achieve a sporting goal.

The Principle Four Osteopathy team has undertaken many hours of post graduate training in injury rehabilitation and exercise prescription which allows us to develop a fully customised treatment approach. We apply evidence based treatments to get you moving again without pain so you can get back to doing the things you love.

WANT RESULTS? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!

We have treated thousands of clients for chronic pain, stubborn injuries and just about every complex musculoskeletal condition you can think of.

Accurate diagnosis is the key to improving your condition and our assessments are one of the things that set us apart from other osteopaths. Our team has undertaken many hours of post graduate training in the areas of musculoskeletal assessment and functional movement assessments which allows us to develop a fully customised treatment approach.

Our consultations are longer to ensure we have time to ask the right questions and are more comprehensive to deliver a working diagnosis, where we identify and explain what your condition is and discuss any underlying causes and internal or external factors affecting your condition. We create a personalised treatment plan that dynamically evolves as your condition improves and administer results based treatments in conjunction with exercise rehabilitation designed to help you regain control of your health and wellbeing.

BEING IN PAIN SUCKS! SHOCKWAVE THERAPY MIGHT BE THE ANSWER!

Shockwave therapy is a clinically proven non-invasive treatment for tendon, ligament or fascia conditions.

Common conditions that shockwave therapy may help:

  • Plantar fasciopathy
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Gluteal tendinopathy
  • Patellar tendinopathy
  • Medial epicondylopathy
  • Lateral epicondylopathy

How does it work? Shockwaves are applied to the affected area removing old damaged and weakened cells so the body can replace them with healthy viable cells. Shockwaves also help to decrease pain signals and increase blood circulation in tissues which stimulates the healing process. Shockwave therapy has been used by Olympians, footballers and formula drivers for many years. Now it is available to you.

A FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREEN IS WHAT YOU NEED.

Reduce the risk of injury and get a tailored exercise program to improve movement, performance and wellbeing.

A Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is designed to increase performance by assessing sport or activity specific actions to identify imbalance, asymmetry, weaknesses and restrictions in the body. Our Osteopaths will take you through the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) developed by Physiotherapist Gray Cook and a series of functional capacity tests. Then we design a treatment and training program to improve balance, stability, form, function, strength and endurance to help you reach peak performance.

WORKSTATION ERGONOMIC ASSESSMENTS

Our osteopaths are highly skilled in both face to face and online telehealth workstation ergonomic assessments.

We can optimise workstation set up in the office or at home or you or your employees. Our ergonomic assessments can identify the need for ergonomic equipment, review posture and make recommendations to increase work performance, help people dealing with pain or injury and improve overall health and wellbeing.

What makes us different from other ergonomic assessors:

  • Heath Williams and Shaun Coghlan are 2 of only a handful of osteopaths in Australia who have been awarded the title “Occupational Health Osteopath” by Osteopathy Australia.
  • All of our team are osteopathic musculoskeletal experts who have undertaken specific postgraduate training in ergonomics.
  • Our osteopaths have performed thousands of telehealth and in person, office and home office workstation assessments.
  • We offer standard assessments for clients with no pain or injury and detailed assessments if pain, injury or complex conditions are affecting your work.
  • You receive a report about the risk assessment findings, advice and recommendations including any additional equipment that may be of benefit.
