About Us

Elite Osteopathy is located in Malvern within the Malvern Kieser Gym facility. There is designated patient parking behind the gym or ample on-street parking. We are located near the Malvern Road and Glenferrie Road intersection and trams regularly pass down both roads.

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.

All of our Osteopaths are registered with the health regulatory board AHPRA. They also have the relevant Osteopathic Insurance and are Members of Osteopathy Australia.


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).

Dr Nicholas Arora

Nick is an experienced osteopath with a passion for problem solving the body. Working as a massage therapist and osteopath for the better part of a decade his hands are well seasoned.

A Bachelor of Clinical Sciences and a Masters in Health Science at Victoria University have given Nick a solid foundation in the body, how it works and what happens when it doesn’t. The learning is never finished for Nick and he keeps busy updating his skills attending courses and seminars. He has a particular interest in the fascial-connective tissue system which acts like a glue holding the body together, biomechanics and movement especially related to repetitive sprain/ strain syndromes and also visceral (organ) treatment and manipulation. Through working with these systems Nick has been successful at identifying long held maladaptive movement patterns and postures. These are often responsible for slowing the healing process and incomplete resolution of sometimes very old injuries.

Nick has worked in several prominent clinics around Melbourne and overseas as an osteopathic consultant and tutor in an orthopaedic hospital in Mumbai, India. His journey in this profession has seen him work along side some wise old souls including world-renowned surgeons, expert clinical Pilates rehabilitators, various movement experts, naturopaths and yogis. Working amongst a vast array of health professionals have helped Nick craft a expansive view of what important, involved and sometimes overlooked in health and wellbeing.

For Nick however the best way to learn is through direct experience and so he is constantly observing and working with his own body through yoga and various movement practices, meditation, breath work and things that perhaps don’t yet have a name. His latest adventure was a 540km solo hike through the mountains in Turkey with just his backpack, boots and a keen mind problem solving injuries before they occurred. He advocates the same to all his patients, to be curious about their bodies, to get to know them like a friend and understand their strengths, weaknesses, tension and habits.

Previous studies at the University of Melbourne in biochemistry and botany marry well with Nick’s current philosophies on osteopathy and the human form. He is of the opinion that we may learn much from the trees around us; our spines strong and tall like the trunk; and our limbs graceful and flexible like branches on the wind. If Nick is not with a rucksack on back exploring the globe, you may find him in the garden tending his tomatoes, bonsais or other seasonal delights.

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
