Osteopathy Australia has recognised our osteopath Inaki Ruiz Molina “Nach” as 1st Queensland registered osteopath (4th Australian osteopath) with the title Advance Exercise Rehabilitative Osteopath (tertiary) – kind of a big deal!
In Australia, Advanced Practitioners are assessed by skilled health professionals within a focus area. Panels include allied health professionals and medical specialists.
On being recognised, Advanced Practitioners are given unique privileges, including a formal professional title like: “Advanced Paediatric Osteopath”, “Advanced Exercise Rehabilitative Osteopath”, or “Advanced Pain Management Osteopath”.
As a patient, you get the benefit of a well-trained osteopath, plus a professional with enhanced clinical skills.
Advanced Practitioners have:
- Completed a range of quality education in their focus area.
- Demonstrated quality in how they practice with many focus area client/patient groups.
- Succeeded in a professional review based on feedback from other health professionals (non- osteopaths only) sharing management of clients/patients over an extended time.
- Demonstrated a career track record of providing a broad range of quality clinical services in the area indicated by their title.
Our osteopath Nach, has achieved this recognition due to his dual qualification (Masters of Osteopathic Medicine and Masters in Exercise & Sports Science). He also had to prove that he keeps up to date with the newest research regarding exercise rehabilitation, by way of attending seminars and courses. Some of these seminars/courses include:
- Mastering Lower limb tendinopathy (With Peter Malliarias, Phd)
- The shoulder: Complex doesn’t have to be Complicated (With Adam Meakins)
- Mc Gill Method 1 & 2: Lower back pain rehabilitation (With Dr Stuart McGill, Dr. Ed Cambridge and Joel Proskewitz)
- Assessing and managing radicular pain (With Tom Jesson – Physio Network)
- MAT (Movement Assessment Technologies) level 1 & 2
- The Sporting Shoulder (With Dr Rod Whiteley Phd – Physio Network)
What is Exercise-based Rehabilitation?
Exercise-based rehabilitation is a unique focus in osteopathy. It involves movement & exercise-based programs, sometimes with limited manual therapy, to enhance physical capacity or movement in patients who have:
- Sustained an injury
- Undergone recent surgery
- Suffer from chronic illness or injury
- Experience loss of normal functional ability
- Are seeking recovery and improvement to their general health and wellbeing.
Can a referral be provided by an osteopath offering exercise-based rehabilitation?
Osteopaths understand treatment options that may work in combination with exercise-based programs. They have links with other health practitioners, as well as with wellbeing program providers. At Kingscliff Osteopathy, we have developed a great referral network with other health practitioners to make sure that you are taken care by a team of experts if you need the extra support. We work along GPs, orthopaedic surgeons, exercise physiologists, psychologists, pilates instructors, personal trainers among other professionals.
Kingscliff Osteopathy welcomes patients from all the near by locations ranging from Pottsville, Cabarita to Coolangatta, Tugun and the rest of the Gold Coast.
