Spinal Symmetry Pymble
Our practitioners are experienced manipulative therapists, having a minimum of 5 years university training. They have also undergone extensive in house, hands on and theoretical postgraduate training with our principal osteopath therefore each practitioner is trained to provide the same treatment consistent with the Spinal Symmetry model.
The Spinal Symmetry method is different from other manipulative therapy approaches. Our intention is to correct the primary cause of the primary problem of your back pain not just your symptoms. The fundamental principle of our treatment is that "structure governs function". Our focus is on the skeletal structure and its joint biomechanics, in particular the hips and pelvis. T! he hips and pelvis are the foundations of our spine and skeletal system. Much like the foundations of a building, when there is a 'structural' imbalance occurring at the hips and pelvis, cracks in the walls can occur throughout the entire skeletal system which relies on this foundation. The nervous system controls the way the body 'functions', including the muscles and ligaments. Any dysfunction to the nervous system can lead to back pain and other muscle and joint issues. When we correct an imbalance of the hips and pelvis this affects the spine, which houses the spinal cord i.e. the nervous system. This correction allows for the nervous system to return to function normally and remove symptomatic effects such as pain.
