At Brisbane Osteopathic Centre we pride ourselves in providing the best quality osteopathic care for every patient who walks in our door.

 

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a drug-free, hands on therapy that aims to improve your health and wellness. Osteopaths work to decrease any of your strains and muscle tension so you can enjoy your life more. There are many different techniques that osteopaths may use to help align your body and improve it’s function. Find out more about ostaopthy here.

Cranial Osteopathy – A different approach

Our practitioners use the gentle approach called cranial osteopathy. Introduced in the final years of the undergraduate course our osteopaths have fine tuned their skills with hundreds of hours of post graduate training, in Australia and the World.

Our core team have all trained in the Biodynamic Approach to cranial osteopathy as taught by Dr James Jealous, and have completed Phase 1-9 and various other courses including the Treatment of Children Phases 1-3 with Dr Robyn Seamer and Dr Manuela Da Rin.

Each practitioner has also completed further training in areas of interest as well as reading journal articles and research.

Our Training

We have all undertaken 5 years of undergraduate training at RMIT or SCU and are registered with AHPRA, the governing body for health care practitioners and Osteopathy Australia. As members of AHPRA we are required to maintain continuing education annually, including maintaining our first aid and CPR skills. This legislation has only come in in 2010, but our osteopaths have always undertaken postgraduate education since graduating. It is part of our commitment to provide a better quality of care for our patients.

Our History

Our two founding osteopaths, Shayne Day and Scott Baxter, had been working in Brisbane for many years before they opened Brisbane Osteopathic Centre in October 2004.

Their shared vision was to have an osteopathic centre where all our practitioners used the same gentle style of treatment so patients would always be able to be seen. This allowed patients to get the continuity of care they deserve without being affected by our osteopaths being too busy or on holidays.

The clinic was opened in October 2004, and in January 2005 Trent Sigley and Rebecca Baxter joined the practice.

These four osteopaths form our core team who have been with the Brisbane Osteopathic Centre since the beginning.

Since then we have also had Bernadette Diablik join our team to help provide care for patients wanting to be seen on Saturdays.
