How do online Osteopathy consults work?
Using the secure technology Physitrack Telehealth, our practitioners now have a platform to provide online consultations. Our Osteos will be able to give you a diagnosis, treatment plan and the support you need from the comfort of your own home!
What treatment methods do Osteopaths use?
Our Osteopaths will use a variety of manual treatments such as soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, stretching and exercise to treat you and to help with the body’s natural healing processes. Some of our Osteos may also use dry needling and ultra sound therapy.
Our ALPHA team are constantly reviewing and learning the latest evidence-based physical therapy and exercise rehabilitation methods to ensure you get the best care possible.

If you’re unsure if your condition can be treated online, you may email us in advance to see if it’s right for you. Get the support you need to help your body heal and perform at it’s best.
How can we diagnose and treat without physically seeing you
If this is your first appointment with us, you will be sent a questionnaire to answer so we can get a background of your conditions. Our practitioners will take a thorough history of your complaint. They may also ask you to perform some movements over the video call to help diagnose your condition. We will then provide you with some home treatment techniques to help ease your pain, as well as exercises to help manage long term. If our practitioners believe you need treatment face to face they will refer you on to an in house practitioner.
The ALPHA Osteo difference
The Osteopaths at ALPHA Sports Medicine all have a background in sport and an empathetic understanding of pain. We believe the best results are achieved when we actively listen to you and ensure you receive the empathy and support you need to start your journey to recovery.
We treat our patients like family and each treatment session is tailored to you, your needs and circumstances. Why? Because that’s the only way we’ll be able to help you get back to living at your best.
Alpha Sports Medicine is conveniently located in Newport, in the heart of the inner west of Melbourne, and Bacchus March, and we also support the communities of Altona, Yarraville, Spotswood, Sunshine, and Williamstown with our Physiotherapy services.
Due to the nature of the online consult, payment must be taken before the consult via credit card over the phone. You will have to confirm with your private health insurance company if you can claim a rebate back through them.
All you will need is a smartphone, tablet or device that uses Google Chrome. You will be emailed the instructions of how to access the technology prior to your appointment!
