Seth Consedine is a Melbourne based Osteopath working in Fitzroy and Thornbury
 
AT THE DIRECTION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES ALL OSTEOPATHS IN VICTORIA HAVE HAD TO MAKE SOME SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE WAY THAT THEY PRACTISE AND MANAGE THEIR PATIENTS FOR THE NEXT SIX WEEKS (APPROXIMATELY MID SEPTEMBER).  ONLINE BOOKINGS ARE NOW ONLY AVAILABLE FOR TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS.  TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENT I HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SEE THAT THERE WOULD BE AN INCREASE IN YOUR CARE NEEDS IF I DID NOT GIVE A PHYSICAL TREATMENT (e.g. you would need to see a specialist or are likely to present to the emergency department).  THESE CONDITIONS ARE STRICT AND THERE ARE HEAVY PENALTIES FOR PRACTITIONERS WHO DO NOT FOLLOW THIS DIRECTIVE.  THEREFORE, IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE A SERIOUS CONDITION THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED PLEASE GET IN CONTACT WITH ME BY PHONE OR EMAIL (OSTEOSETH@GMAIL.COM).
 
YOU CAN BOOK A TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENT BY CLICKING HERE OR BOOK VIA THE USUAL WAY THROUGH MY BOOKINGS PAGE. 
 
FOR ALL FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS I WILL CONTINUE TO PRACTISE ACCORDING TO MY COVID SAFE PLAN.  FIRSTLY, I WILL TEXTING OR CALLING YOU ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT (OR THE DAY BEFORE) TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE WELL AND SAFE TO HAVE TREATMENT.  SECONDLY, I WILL BE LIMITING MY APPOINTMENT TIMES TO ALLOW FOR PHYSICAL DISTANCING AND APPROPRIATE SANITATION BETWEEN CLIENTS. THIRDLY, ALL CLIENTS ARE NOW REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS AT THEIR APPOINTMENT. 
 
AS ALWAYS, A GENTLE REMINDER THAT THIS IS A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE THAT EFFECTS OUR COLLECTIVE HUMAN COMMUNITY.  WHILE THIS IS A TIME FOR MINIMISING OUR PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH ONE ANOTHER, IT IS IMPORTANT TO SHOW COMPASSION AND KINDNESS TO OUR FRIENDS, FAMILY AND FELLOW HUMANS IN OTHER WAYS TO REMAIN CONNECTED AND HEALTHY. REMEMBER THERE IS NO HARM IN CALLING OR TEXTING SOMEONE TO CHECK IN ON THEM OR SMILING AT A STRANGER IN THE STREET.  THIS BUILDS CONNECTIONS AND RESILIENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY AND WILL ASSIST IN OVERCOMING THIS CHALLENGE.  WITH LOVE. SETH

Osteopathy is an effective healthcare approach which recognizes the important link between the structure of the body and how well it functions.  Osteopaths use their extensive anatomical knowledge of the skeletal system, muscles, joints, connective tissue, nerves, circulatory system and internal organs to diagnose and treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
