Welcome to Fit and Well Osteo
My name is Dr Kate Caine and I am an Osteopath. Osteopathy embodies working with the health of the whole person – treatment is directed at your presenting issues but also at those issues that may maintain or contribute to these or other health concerns you may have.
Osteopathy works well for all ages as it provides treatment that can be tailored to the needs of the individual – from gentle to those that like a firmer approach!
Good to know:
Appointments are available during the day, evenings and weekends and you can make an appointment online which is easy and convenient. Appointments are available morning, afternoon, evening and Saturdays.
You can claim your HICAPS rebate on the spot at the time of your consultation. If you have an EPC and Chronic Disease Management plan (available from your GP) you can also claim your rebate at the time of service.

This form of therapy uses acupuncture needles to address trigger points found in muscle and connective tissues. These points can cause pain at their site as well as referring pain elsewhere. They can be caused by acute overload (eg. Overdoing it in the gym, garden or recreational activities) or by long term overuse (repetitive tasks at work or long term poor posture).
