Feel Better and Enjoy Life.
Nobody should have to live with pain. My aim as an Osteopath is to help each of my patients live a healthy active life free from discomfort.

As a registered Osteopath, the techniques I use are very gentle and tailored to each patient’s physical needs from newborn to the elderly. Nobody should have to live with pain.
Short-term pain relief and long-term benefits.
As an Osteopath, I treat the short term effects of your condition by understanding the underlying causes behind your problem and getting you back on your feet as soon as possible. I also work with you to minimise recurrences for improved long-term outcomes and for y9our health and well being.
Osteopaths do not prescribe drugs to alleviate pain. Instead we use a highly trained sense of touch enables us to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of pain.
Good healthcare comes from good communication. I always try to explain each part of my patients’ diagnosis and treatment as thoroughly as possible.
Much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in our body’s structure and function. Osteopaths diagnose and treat damaged parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to help the body’s natural healing ability. When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well tuned engine, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living.
An Osteopath is able to use many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medicine. However, unlike conventional medicine, the patient is also assessed functionally, mechanically and posturally and treated by manual methods to suit the individual’s needs.
