Changes to Osteopathy Restrictions
For Metro Melb from Monday 28th September, Osteopaths will be allowed to provide essential face to face services;
- To prevent a significant deterioration in functional independence which would result in an escalation of care needs (such as increased frequency in treatment, significant increase in pain, specialist input, or substantial increase in recovery time as a result of delayed care)
- For assessment and diagnostic purposes for those people whose care has been delayed during Stage 4 restrictions, and where further delay likely to result in deterioration.
If you feel you fall into any of the above criteria, or simply aren’t sure….PLEASE! Don’t hesitate to give the clinic a call and we’d be more than happy to assist with your concern or query.
At this point in time (and pending any further changes), we will RE-ACTIVATE ONLINE BOOKINGS as of Saturday afternoon – 26.09.2020. This will provide an opportunity to lock in an appointment time that suits both yourself and your osteo.
Is massage back operating?
Unfortunately NOT. At this point in time, only Allied health practitioners registered with AHP
RA (Allied Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) are permitted to provide face to face essential services. Unless there is a change in thinking, it appears massage therapy will be resuming from Mon 26th October.
