What we offer

What Our Osteopaths Treat

If you are experiencing intense back pain, knee pain or neck pain, encountering troubling sporting injuries, sore muscles or chronic headaches, Peninsula Osteopaths use a holistic approach which combines Osteopathy and Shockwave Therapy for the treatment of all types of muscle and joint pain. We are ACC Accredited.

Headaches, Migraines and Neck Pain

Peninsula Osteopaths have the expertise to assess different types of headaches. In some cases the cause may be a musculoskeletal or postural dysfunction. In others it may be due to stress, breathing mechanics, dehydration, fluid drainage or hormonal changes.

Shoulder, Arm, Hip and Leg Pain

We treat all kinds of musculoskeletal injuries. These include Occupational Overuse Syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, repetitive strain injuries such as tennis or golfer’s elbow, whiplash, knee pain, hip dysfunction, ankle sprains and tendinopathies. We also can help with rehabilitation after surgery or your management of chronic conditions.

Lower Back Pain and Sciatica

Every 4 out of 5 Kiwis experience back pain. Peninsula Osteopaths have developed diagnostic skills that assist in back pain treatments by determining the source of the pain. We will work with you to get you active as quickly as possible. We will also suggest strategies to help prevent reoccurrence.

Sprains and Strains

As part of our Osteopathy service we treat all kinds of Strains and Sprains. Whether it is your ankle, foot, arm or any other part of your body, we will get you back to your daily living activities with a personalised osteopathic treatment from our Osteopaths.

Chronic Pain

If you are suffering from chronic pain such as frozen shoulder, arthritis or any other muscle or joint conditions, our Osteopaths are well skilled in rehabilitation and managing your pain levels depending on your specific circumstances.

Sporting Injuries

We will assess your injury and ensure that the cause is identified. We will work with you to formulate a program of exercises to self-manage your injury, improve your flexibility and function and look at ways of preventing reoccurrence of the injury. We will advise you if your injury can be covered by ACC and we can submit your ACC claim on your behalf.
A Holistic Treatment Approach

Your Journey to Recovery

Peninsula Osteopaths are skilled professionals who will evaluate and diagnose the root of the problem. Through an array of hands-on techniques, we identify dysfunctions in your body. These techniques include a functional movement assessment, massage and stretching of muscles, tendons, and ligaments, the mobilisation of soft tissue and joints, along with gentle visceral and cranial techniques.

Osteopathy identifies the vital connection between the structure and the functioning of your body. Osteopaths assess how ligaments, muscles, joints, internal organs and connective tissues integrate to allow your body to behave as a unit.

We use a holistic approach to bring you back from injury to recovery in the shortest possible time so that you can go back to doing the things you love. Whether it’s a walk on the beaches of the Coromandel or playing with your grandkids, we will use a combination of Osteopathic Techniques and Shockwave Therapy to bring you back to your healthy self with the best possible outcomes.
