Unitec Osteopaths

Our Unitec Osteopaths clinic is located right on our Mt Albert campus and offers osteopathy services to students, staff, and the general public.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is primarily a manual treatment, with the majority of diagnosis and treatment performed by the osteopath’s hands. Osteopaths focus on the muscles, bones and joints of the human body. The osteopath seeks to analyse and understand the causes of those symptoms and includes them in the treatment.

What can Osteopathy help with?

Osteopathy can help people with a wide variety of problems, including:

  • Pregnant women: Antenatal care for back pain and other aches in all stages of pregnancy
  • Infants: Colic and difficulty sleeping or feeding
  • Children and young people: Growth-related problems in the knees, feet or spine
  • Elderly people: Chronic aches and pains related to the spine, shoulders, hips, feet and knees
  • Sportspeople and dancers: Sprains, strains and chronic injuries
  • Workers in all occupations: Neck, back and joint pains of all descriptions

What should I expect?

  1. Your first visit will take about 90 minutes, and after that follow-up treatments take about 45 to 60 minutes.
  2. Make sure you wear loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment.
  3. Generally, treatments are gentle and rarely cause pain or discomfort
