Relinque Sports & Spinal Group has improved my quality of life, by identifying the source of the pain in my right hip and leg which had followed me for most of my life and treating a problem that other medical practitioners could not find within my body. Ms J Saker, QLD
I came to Relinque Sports & Spinal Group for a specific problem which they rectified over a four week treatment process. I now maintain regular visits and fly regularly from Sydney to see them. F. Findlay, NSW
After the first two treatments a lot of the pain had gone from my neck, shoulders and head. After the following session most of the pain had gone and felt much more energised. Since the treatment my life has completely changed. I have much more energy, and no more pain. J McDonald Perth, Western Australia
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy was developed in America in the late 18th century by Andrew Taylor Still. He dedicated his life to studying the human body and founded a hands on manual medicine that aimed to improve the body’s health and circulation.

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that focuses on the function and movement of the body as a 'whole'. Osteopaths recognise the key link between the structure of the body, and the way it functions.
Osteopaths are musculoskeletal experts and have a highly developed sense of palpation. They use a variety of techniques during the treatment including massage, myofascial release, stretching, and joint manipulation to remove areas of tension and restriction within the body.
Osteopathy treatment is based upon the core belief that the body is a unit, and if one part of the body is restricted then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate.
What are the principles of Osteopathy?
There are four key Osteopathy principles that govern the unique approach that osteopaths take to your health:
-The body is a unit.
-The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms.
-Structure and function are reciprocally inter-related.
-Rational therapy is based on consideration of the first three principles.
What do Osteopaths treat?
Osteopathy is hands on, gentle and safe. It is used to treat many conditions such as:
- back and neck pain
- postural problems
- sports injuries
- repetitive strain injuries
- pregnancy related problems
