Osteopathy Hong Kong

Osteopathy is a form of complementary physical medicine that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, nerves and joints) and how it relates to the overall health and well-being of an individual. Osteopaths use a hands-on approach to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems, such as back pain, neck pain, and joint pain.
In Australia and the United Kingdom, osteopaths are regulated healthcare professionals who have completed a 4 year minimum in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in osteopathy and are registered with the relevant government regulatory body. They are also trained in other areas such as nutrition, exercise, and rehabilitation.
During a consultation, the osteopath will take a detailed medical history, perform a physical examination, and use various techniques such as massage, stretching, and joint manipulation to help improve the function of the neuro-musculoskeletal system.
We may also advise you on posture, exercise, and lifestyle changes to improve your overall health and prevent future re-injury.



What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy takes a holistic approach towards healthcare by considering the body as a whole rather than just focusing on isolated symptoms or areas of pain. This approach often involves a combination of manual techniques, lifestyle advice, and sometimes even dietary recommendations to promote overall health and well-being.
Osteopaths are trained to assess and treat a wide range of conditions, and they aim to restore balance and function to the body’s musculoskeletal system.

This can be particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with issues like sports injuries, back pain, headaches, and other musculoskeletal problems.
Who should visit an osteopath?

Anyone can visit an osteopath. From newborn to the elderly, we tailor our techniques to your care.

What can I expect in my first consultation?

We will sit down and run through the reasons that have brought you to our clinic. We will then go through various lifestyle and health factors which are also relevant to the diagnosis and treatment. Afterwards, we will run through a gentle, physical treatment, which may involve some light manipulations.

What do I need to bring and/or wear?

Wear comfortable clothes that allow for some freedom of movement. Cotton shorts and T-shirts are best.

Will the treatment hurt?

No. The treatment will be a release, although with some muscles there may be some discomfort as the muscles and joints are released and stretched.

Are there any side effects from treatment?

There are no side effects from treatment. You may experience some mild muscle and tissue discomfort for the first 24-36 hours. This is perfectly normal.

Do I need a referral from a General Practitioner (GP) before I visit an osteopath?

Your Osteopath is a professionally trained primary health care provider. You can visit an Osteopath directly without a GP’s referral.

Can I claim on insurance?

Yes. To claim under most insurance schemes in Hong Kong, you may need to have a referral from your general practitioner. Please confirm with your insurance company.

What are your qualifications?

Our Osteopaths, depending on their home country would have undergone a 4-5 year full time university training in medical sciences, speicalising in musculoskeletal health. We are government registered health care providers in Australia, New Zealand or the United Kingdom.
