About Us

Elite Osteopathy is located in Malvern, but also practice on specific days at Kaya Health Club in Prahran (Thursday) and the CBD (Friday). Our location is in a predominantly residential area with ample parking available on both High St and surrounding side streets.

Combining experience, care, and honesty, our Osteos are committed to getting the best result in the least number of treatments possible. We achieve this by always listening to the patient and tailoring an individual treatment plan accordingly. Our Osteopaths are at the forefront of current research and deliver a service built on professionalism and results.

Elite Osteopathy has established strong relationships with a vast network of other healthcare professionals. If required, we can refer to another practitioner to help you get the best results possible.

Your Osteopath will send for relevant imaging scans (i.e. X-ray, MRI, CT, Ultrasound, etc) if deemed appropriate. This can help support our diagnosis and provide our patient with the full clinical picture of their condition.

At Elite Osteopathy, all of our Osteos are registered with the Osteopathy Board of Australia and are members of the Australian Osteopathy Association. We require this in order to maintain the highest standards of our practitioners and to ensure excellence in patient care.

Practitioner

Dr Anthony Murphy

Anthony is the Principal Osteopath and Founder of Elite Osteopathy. With over 10 years clinical experience, Anthony has worked in many private practices throughout the world. He has also been employed by multiple football clubs, where he gained exposure to a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries.

While working for two years as an Osteopath in Canada, Anthony developed many new and highly effective Osteopathy treatment techniques. In more recent years, he has completed a variety of post-graduate qualifications including Remedial Massage, Sports Medicine Injury Diagnosis & Treatment, Breathing & Postural Dysfunction, Spinal Joint Manipulation and Dry-Needling. He also completed a Masters of Osteopathy, with a specific focus on injuries arising from Triathlon.

Anthony has always been involved in sport, fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. This has lead to an easy and natural progression into the world of Osteopathy where he can help others maintain their own health and wellbeing. He finds it particularly rewarding treating sporting injuries and common workplace postural issues, including low back pain, sciatica and headaches/migraines. Osteo treatment is very successful in treating these conditions and many more.

Anthony is registered with the Australian Osteopathy Authority (AHPRA) and is a current Member of the Australian Osteopathy Association (AOA).

What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine involving the use of hands-on techniques to treat all types of body aches, pains and tightness. Using a holistic approach to health care, your Osteopath will identify the cause of injury, rather than just treating symptoms. We understand that the body can heal itself once correct structure and balance are achieved.

Our Osteopaths have all completed a 5 year degree which involves a Bachelor of Osteopathy, followed by a Masters of Osteopathy. This also involves 3 years of treatment within a University Osteopathy clinic open to the public. Due to the recognition of high level medical training, Osteopaths are afforded the honorary title of Doctor upon completion of their Osteopathy degrees.

Your Osteopath can use any of the following techniques to achieve results:
Spinal joint manipulation involves applying a controlled force to release pressure inside a joint
Joint mobilization (articulation) is a technique to increase joint range of motion
Advanced stretching techniques (MET) are gentle techniques to increase joint range of motion and promote muscle relaxation
Soft tissue massage can decrease muscle tension and promote drainage of fluid/inflammation
Dry needling (using acupuncture needles) can increase blood supply to a specific area and promote muscle relaxation and fluid drainage

At Elite Osteopathy, we will also provide you with specific stretching and strengthening exercises. This will allow you to be in control of your condition and manage your symptoms away from the clinic.


Our Osteopaths treat a very broad range of conditions, but will commonly encounter the following:


Neck pain and back pain, Spinal pain and disc pain, Headaches/Migraines, Sciatica, Shoulder pain, elbow pain and wrist pain, Rotator cuff strain, Tennis elbow, Hip pain, knee pain and ankle pain, Plantar fasciitis and heel pain, Bursitis and tendonitis, RSI and postural issues, Arthritis and joint degeneration, Sports injuries
