Please take the time to watch this extraordinary video from an ICU specialist on his learnings regarding COVID-19 and how you can potentially help reduce your risk of contracting or spreading the virus https://vimeo.com/39973386060 In the video Dr. David Price of Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City shares information in a Mar. 22 Zoom call with family and friends on empowering and protecting families during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are a few technical hiccups but it is worth persisting as it may help save lives and spread of the virus. Clearly a lot has changed since 22 March 2020, but a lot of the principals and learnings are still relevant - we suggest you watch from 6 minutes onwards until at least 15 minutes we hope you find it helpful.
Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions.
Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit. Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, Osteopaths may be able to identify dysfunction in your body. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) along with mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues.
In Australia, Osteopaths are government registered practitioners who complete a minimum of five years’ University training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, general medical diagnosis and Osteopathic Techniques.
Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners and are trained to recognise conditions which require medical referral. They are also trained to perform standard medical examinations of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.
Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and the Medical Enhanced Primary Care scheme. Osteopaths are registered providers for workers’ compensation schemes and motor accident insurers.
