Valued Health Osteopathy

Can’t make it into the clinic during COVID-19? That’s ok, we’re still here to help!


With the ever-changing landscape that is 2020, there has to be some silver linings to come out of it. One of those could be the introduction of Telehealth. Gone may be the days where you need to spend hours in waiting rooms, you may now be able to conduct the consults from the comfort of your own home.


Valued Health Osteopathy is now offering Telehealth Appointments for:

Pain Management Advice

Soft Tissue Release

Mobility Exercises

Rehabilitation Programs

Movement Screening

Ergonomic Assessments

WHAT IS TELEHEALTH?

Telehealth is a technology-based alternative to face to face consultations. It can include mediums such as video conferencing (E.G. Skype, Zoom, or many other platforms), internet or telephone.

BOOK A TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENT TODAY

All registered health practitioners can use Telehealth as long as it is safe and clinically appropriate for the health service being provided. Osteopaths must still comply with the same regulations of their national boards as when they provide face to face consultations.


TELEHEALTH AND WHAT IS INVOLVED

Firstly, your Osteopath will determine if a Telehealth consult will be appropriate for you and your concerns, if so, and you are happy to participate then we can organise a Telehealth appointment for you.

In these challenging times, IT security is of utmost importance. Before the consultation we ask for you to ensure you are within a safe and private area where you’re comfortable in having the appointment. We also utilise a Telehealth platform that provides security regarding broadcasting and connection. Your privacy and safety are of the upmost importance to us.

Via the video call we are able to have a chat to establish your presenting condition and discuss your past medical history. As we use video technology we may then ask you to do some different movements or exercises so we can evaluate your presenting complaint a little better. From there, we can discuss what we think may be occurring and develop a management plan that is tailored to you specifically. This may include some stretches (which we will be able to demonstrate), self-massage techniques (eg: spikey ball, foam roller etc), ergonomic and/ or postural advice. If it is appropriate, we can also create an individualised management and rehabilitation program for you to follow at home, this can be shared with you electronically after your consultation.

Dr Tom McCormick (Osteopath) is the Director and Principal Osteopath at Valued Health Osteopathy in Bentleigh East.

The sayings ‘first move well, and then move often’ and ‘don’t add strength to dysfunction’ by Gray Cook are two factors that Dr Tom McCormick heavily abides by.


Dr Tom McCormick (Osteopath) believes it is important to address the immediate issues causing pain, however feels it is equally important to improve his patient’s ongoing movement, tissue quality, muscle activation and muscle strength in order to optimise injury recovery and reduce the chance of re-aggravation.


Since Tom graduated as an Osteopath he has had the opportunity to work both in Queensland and Victoria within private practice and has worked closely with sporting teams. Tom has suffered many injuries and complaints over the years due to his heavy interest in sport. From broken bones, torn cartilage, tendon and muscle injuries to even a double hernia repair, this is ultimately what led Tom into the health field.


Tom has a hands on approach to healthcare by utilising a broad range of techniques that are tailored specifically to each patient. Such techniques include mobilization, soft tissue massage, stretching, trigger point therapy, dry needling and exercise rehabilitation.


Although Tom enjoys treating athletes, he also thrives on the sense of enjoyment that comes with helping his patients of all ages with many other injuries. Tom also has experience in treating headaches, back and neck pain, hip, knee and ankle injuries and shoulder and elbow pain.

Returning To Exercise During COVID-19?

Returning to exercise but not too sure where to start?


Whether you are starting back at the gym or enjoying the outdoors, there are a few things to consider.


Valued Health Osteopathy

3/658 Centre Rd, Bentleigh East, 3165


Wow, what a year 2020 has been so far! It has thrown a lot of challenges our way and we have all taken it in our stride and pushed on through. With so many recent changes, I’m sure we’re all looking forward to returning to our daily routines and for you, this may mean exercise.


As the restrictions start to ease throughout Australia, we now have the pleasure of starting to return to  a ‘new normality’ and getting back to doing more of what we love!

For some people this comes in the form of spending more time with family and friends, returning to our favourite cafe and restaurant, getting out into nature and hiking, returning to the golf course or the local swimming pool or simply the gym or sporting club.

Want to make an appointment? – Book Online Today!


So what do you need to consider before returning to exercise during COVID-19?

  1. Firstly for many of us COVID-19 has meant isolation, restrictions, limited exercise and no gyms. As a result, we have most likely become more sedentary leaving our bodies feeling tighter, stiffer and not as strong. If this is the case, now is the time to pick ourselves up and get back into the swing of things.

2. When returning to exercise after a break it is important NOT to over-do it! Most people might believe that they can just jump straight back in and pick up where they left off. This may cause an injury or stir up previous niggles so it’s important to give your body time to adjust when returning to exercise.
3. Another helpful tip could be to slowly increase your activity levels and load over the first several weeks when returning to sporting activities or the gym. Some helpful examples might include increasing repetitions/sets and decreasing weight, increasing rest periods between sets and reps or simply reducing the time overall time you physically train for.
4. Lastly now is the perfect time to get back into your stretching, mobility and rehabilitation routine to help prevent injuries or niggles when returning to exercise or the gym. If you already have a routine, then that is great so go for it! If you don’t or you are looking for some ideas of what you can possibly do then keep posted for some short videos on Facebook @valuedhealth or on Instagram #valuedhealth.
