Doctor of Osteopathy
As a Doctor of Osteopathic medicine, Brett has a holistic approach, which means he considers all aspects of a patients life and history. This approach formulates an accurate individual picture to best treat each person and their body’s needs. He is passionate about helping patients be truly healthy in body and mind, not just free of symptoms.
Brett believes that healthcare is often too complicated and works hard to ensure patients understand ‘how’ and ‘why’ their body works the way it does. This ensures patients can better manage themselves and not rely solely on outside interventions. General ongoing Osteopathic care aims to support the whole body not just the treatment of symptoms.
Simple and empowering
Osteopathy is a five-year university course, which includes a bachelors degree and masters qualification. Senior Osteopathy students complete clinical training under the supervision of registered Osteopaths at university teaching clinics. In addition to this training, Brett has worked overseas in private orthopaedic hospitals where he has been the supervising Osteopath in Osteopathic rehabilitation departments as well as supervising Australian students under going overseas placements.
In 2014, Brett moved to Cooroy from Melbourne in search of a tree change. He is a relaxed, easy going, and friendly guy. Brett utilises many different techniques, such as a biodynamic approach to cranial osteopathy, muscle energy technique, counterstrain and soft tissue manipulation among others.
Brett is an Osteopath who treats anyone from adults, young children, pregnant women and babies, the elderly and everyone in between. Brett’s logical, thorough and non-invasive approach, can treat many issues without the use of medicine. Pain from old or new injuries, headaches, neck or back pain, post surgical rehabilitation, even low energy levels or broken or ineffective sleep can all benefit from osteopathic care. Keeping patients healthy is key, not just treating symptoms.
Brett is a fully registered Osteopath with AHPRA. Health fund rebates are available.
