Have you ever experienced lingering pain on the outside of your elbow? It may have appeared gradually and can be achy or sharp in nature. You can particularly feel it when gripping objects, such as picking up a cup of coffee or holding a milk carton.


Does this sound familiar? You may have lateral epicondylitis, or more commonly known as ‘Tennis Elbow’.

What is Lateral Epicondylitis – (Tennis Elbow)


Symptoms generally include tenderness at the lateral elbow and pain that refers into the forearm. The area can be aggravated by certain movements, such as gripping, lifting and extension of the wrist.


The condition frequently occurs with activities that involve repetitive motions and high loading of the wrist2. This can be related to occupations such as desk workers, carpenters and electricians or daily activities including gardening and throwing sports.


How can Osteopaths help?


Current research shows that first line treatment of lateral epicondylitis can be managed conservatively 1.


Osteopaths can support the management and severity of this condition by employing manual therapy techniques, providing education and exercise prescription.


The treatment can comprise of mobilisation, stretching and strengthening2. It is also recommended that exercise prescription be used in conjunction with manual therapy, to support the improvement of pain, function and grip strength 1

Achilles Tendinopathy

What is Achilles Tendinopathy?


Heel pain? Ankle pain? Pain with running or walking? It could be Achilles Tendinopathy!


Valued Health Osteopathy

3/658 Centre Rd, Bentleigh East, 3165


Achilles tendinopathy (previously known as achilles tendinitis) is a common condition in runners.¹


The achilles tendon is a thick band of tissue which arises from the soleus and gastrocnemius (calf muscles) and inserts at the calcaneus (back of the heel).² The achilles tendon is responsible for pulling on the heel of the foot to allow us to walk, run and jump.²


 Achilles tendinopathy is considered an overuse injury and can be caused by a sudden increase in the intensity, frequency or duration of an activity; or reduced recovery time between activity.²


Other risk factors for achilles tendinopathy include reduced plantar flexor strength, reduced ankle dorsiflexion and abnormal gait patterns.¹

What is Achilles Tendinopathy? Ankle pain Osteo, Osteo Bentleigh, heel pain Osteo, heel pain physio, ankle pain physio, Osteopath Bentleigh

Patients often present with pain localised to the achilles tendon, reduced range of motion and sometimes a thickened achilles tendon.² Stretching the achilles, running up hills or on a soft surface such as the beach may aggravate symptoms. This is due to the increase in ankle dorsiflexion which is where compression of the tendon is at its greatest.³


Initial treatment for Achilles tendinopathy should be aimed at reducing pain and improving calf strength.³ A rehabilitation program should then move towards a focus on the power of the whole kinetic chain and movement control during jumping and landing with retraining movements specific to the tendon in that sport/activity.³

What Is Telehealth?

What is Telehealth? | Can your Osteopath still help?


Valued Health Osteopathy
3/658 Centre Rd, Bentleigh East, 3165

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.

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.
