Better Health Osteopathic & Integrative Medicine Centre Provides Health Education and Care
Date:7/1/2012

Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) July 01, 2012

Newly opened Better Health Osteopathic & Integrative Medicine clinic welcomes patients to the multidisciplinary health and wellness centre. Specialising in osteopathy, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture and remedial massage, the practice's primary focus is pain management and preventative care and education that helps patients become active participants in their own health.

With an emphasis on health literacy, preventative medicine and wellness, Better Health Osteopathic & Integrative Medicine embraces the philosophy that an integrated approach to health care results in a broader view of positive health outcomes and greater sense of self-efficacy for patients. This systemic outlook complements other courses of treatment and fosters a pro-active and preventive approach to health. Providing best-practice care for conditions ranging from osteoarthritis pain and tension headaches to sports injuries and weight management, the team also support patients beyond illness recovery through to dynamic health and high level fitness. The clinic's website will be providing educational resources about a range of health-related issues for both clinic patients and the public.

Modern health care has moved increasingly towards the concept of evidence-based practice (EBP), which has been defined as the judicious use of the best external evidence, combined with the practitioner’s clinical experience and, consultation with the patient. While patient participation in health care has traditionally taken a more passive role secondary to the specialist knowledge and intervention of the health professional, increasing evidence suggests that assigning the acquisition and maintenance of health behaviour skills to patients rather than practitioners is essential to long term health. The practitioners at Better Health return to this philosophy, making patient education a primary focus of treatment.

Dr. Luke Rickards, one of the centre's two osteopaths and a registered acupuncturist, notes that science is at the heart of the clinic's treatment approach. "We have an evidence and science-based approach to care," he asserts. Luke believes in affirming patients' central role as participants in their own recovery and wellness. "Our practice focusses on education and self-efficacy."

Nutritionist and naturopath Kathleen McFarlane agrees that patient education is key to promoting wellness. "To ensure that you get all of the micronutrients your body needs, it's important understand how the body you inhabit uses the food on your plate, and how your needs may change under different conditions and over time" she said. "The adage that we are what we eat carries through to every cell in our bodies; nutrition affects everything on a cellular level, and that's reflected in your overall state of health."

Dr. Sam McCarthy, Osteopath, stresses that the clinic offers a comprehensive view of health care. Sam believes that "wellness goes beyond lack of illness, it's more than just an absence of symptoms." With more than 15 years of clinical experience, he's seen patients in every state of health and knows "with a pro-active approach, better health is within anyone's reach."
