To make an appointment to see Mark Kelly, contact either West End Osteopathic Clinic or Mansfield Clinic and speak with our reception staff for available appointments.  The Mansfield Clinic does not have full time reception, however, messages are regularly checked and your call will be returned as soon as possible. 


If you are a new patient, you will need to arrive 10 minutes earlier than your appointment to allow time to complete relevant documentation. 

 

Your prompt arrival will ensure Our Osteo has the necessary time to provide you with optimal care.

  • Relevant medical reports and imaging, such as radiological scans. 

  • Your Private Health Fund Card, Pension Card or Health Care Card.  If you have a Doctor approved care plan (for specific chronic conditions), then also bring your Medicare Card and Debit Card to claim rebates onsite.

Consultation

Mark Kelly allows up to 40 minutes per consult.  During this time the following will likely occur: 

 

  • For new patients, a comprehensive medical history will be taken, medical reports viewed, and where indicated Orthopaedic and Neurological tests are performed.  

  • For existing patients, an updated history will occur.

  • Assessment of the body - examination of the body for range and quality of movement and the condition of the soft tissues, muscles and ligaments.  The purpose of this is to give Our Osteo an overall picture of the state of balance in the tissues and the type of compensatory patterns that have been established over a period of time. 

  • A diagnosis or diagnoses are made and it will be determined if the condition is suitable for Osteopathic treatment.  If not, a referral to a specialist or other health provider might be made. 

  • Osteopathic treatment using a variety of appropriate techniques which may include, but are not limited to: 

    • soft tissue techniques 

    • muscle energy techniques 

    • joint manipulation/mobilisation 

    • functional release techniques 

    • other gentle indirect techniques

 

Our Osteo may advise the patient on how they can improve the way they physically use their body to improve it's function and reduce stress or strain. 

 

You may be given exercises to do or be advised as to relevant activities to take part in to improve your health condition.   

 

Further referral and liaison with complimentary or specialist health providers will occur as necessary.
