North Melbourne Osteopathy

About Us

No longer convinced each patient case be should be assessed the same as typical industry protocol, Melbourne-based Osteopath Robert McMahon was certain there was a better solution.

Rob strongly believes in not only treating your pain but also identifying the underlying cause and reduce the risk of the injury recurring.

North Melbourne Osteopathy was founded through many years of experience across multiple osteopathic clinics.

We provide quality care for people of all ages treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal aches and pains taking the unique osteopathic approach of treating the whole body focusing on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit. We do this by not only addressing your pain, but also recognising the underlying factors contributing to your pain. We want you to understand why you have your pain and what contributing factors have prevented it from resolving.

We hope to see you soon, and create a better you!

Our Mission

We are passionate about restoring pain free movement in patients using techniques such as joint mobilisation and manipulation, taping, soft tissue (massage), dry needling, stretching and specific exercise prescription. Assessment of upper and lower limb biomechanics and implementation of targeted retraining programs has been my particular area of interest. Optimising the efficiency of running technique can improve symptoms, while reducing rehabilitation time frames and the risk of future injury.

Through working with various athletes and a cross section of the community, I have experience treating all musculoskeletal aches and pains from complicated biomechanical shoulder/neck pain to leg injuries, patellofemoral pain, foot and hip pain.

What Sets Us Apart

Our Core Values

Quality Care

When it comes to osteopathy, We believe strongly in not only treating your pain, but also identifying the underlying cause and reduce the risk of the injury recurring.


We build trusting and lasting relationships through being caring and empathetic. The McMahon family also lives locally and will often be seen out and about in the North Melbourne Community.


We believe that the key to a successful treatment outcome not only lies in the practitioner’s skill, approach and management, but also in the ability of the practitioner to carefully listen, communicate and connect with their patient.


Throughout treatment, I aim to educate my clients on factors such as sleeping positions, workstation ergonomics and correct lifting techniques to empower them to alter daily activities that may be contributing to their pain.


We provide a tailored treatment plan specific to your condition. Importantly, we treat the cause of your symptoms rather than the site of pain. Osteopathic experience is vital in achieving this for our patient and at North Melbourne Osteopathy, this is no exception.
