Registered Osteopath OST0001174660

Adam is a graduate of RMIT 2001 Bachelor of Applied Science (Clinical Science), and Bachelor of Osteopathic Science (with Hons 1st Class). Adam’s osteopathic career began with 2 years solid grounding work at the busy Bendigo Osteopathic Clinic.  Further testing enabled registration to work in a thriving multidisciplinary practice near Bristol. During this time, Adam completed courses in Dry Needle Therapy in London and then later in Melbourne.

Returning to his home region of North East Victoria, Adam opened the Wodonga Osteopathic Clinic in 2005, which has grown to accommodate a dedicated clinic of seven osteopaths and an exercise physiologist. He has developed a particular interest in assisting those with chronic conditions, particularly those who struggle to manage pain associated with osteoarthritis in their senior years. Adam is passionate about providing the best personalised care, and remains curious to learn more.

Married and with 3 beautiful daughters, Adam tries to be a handy man, celebrates humour, and dreams about spending more time outdoors. He finds providing care for his community as an Osteopath thoroughly engaging and rewarding.

B. Ost.Sc, B.App.Sc (Clinical)
Registered Osteopath OST0001248632

Andrew graduated from RMIT University in 2000 after completing a five year double degree in Osteopathic Science and Applied Clinical Science. He practised osteopathy in Fairfield and Bayswater (suburban Melbourne) from 2001-2004 before relocating to Albury-Wodonga in January 2005. He treats patients of all ages, and for any condition that can benefit from osteopathy. Andrew grew up enjoying sports and physical activities. He has been a swimmer and played water-polo for many years.

Andrew has a good understanding of many sporting injuries and the effects of overtraining on the body. This comes from his time training at the AIS and with the Australian water polo team from 1997-2004. He can help athletes using his knowledge of strength and flexibility training, combined with osteopathic treatment, to gain a better understanding of how to manage their training and injuries. In June 2010 Andrew toured with the Australian Water-polo team as their osteopath. However, Andrew enjoys treating all patients, not only athletes and sports-people.

Annabel RanfordSarah Stewart
B.App.Sci(CompMed) M.Osteo
Registered Osteopath OST0000991963

Sarah Stewart graduated from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia with a degree in Clinical Science (Complementary Medicine) and a Master of Osteopathy in 2009. 

Sarah relocated to the warmer climate of Queensland, where she spent a busy year surfing and treating a wide variety of people and conditions, ranging from elite sportspeople to weekend warriors and everyone in between. Upon returning to Melbourne, Sarah worked in a diversity of clinical settings and completed further studies in obstetrics and gynaecology, treatment of children, sport injuries, rehabilitation, dry needling and a Diploma in Animal Osteopathy. After nearly 7 years at home, Sarah indulged her passion for wanderlust and relocated to Dublin, Ireland, for a year of work, rain, travel, conversation and huddling around the fireplace.

Sarah became involved in osteopathy at a young age as a result of various sporting injuries sustained during a successful athletics career. She found osteopathic treatment to be the most helpful modality to reduce pain and improve mobility, as well as practical lifestyle changes and rehabilitation exercises that could be continued away from the clinic. This is reflected in her treatment style, which incorporates both direct structural techniques including soft tissue, stretching, joint mobilisation and manipulation, as well as gentle functional treatment and biodynamic osteopathy in the cranial field. She has a special interest in treating babies and children, as well as their mother’s through every stage of the process.

Sarah is passionate about education and is always completing further studies to hone her skills and update her knowledge, and reading the latest research in the field of manual medicine. She will always welcome questions as she also likes to educate her patients if they are interested. Sarah has additional qualifications in myofascial dry needling, treatment of children, and biodynamic osteopathy in the cranial field (Phases 1-4, Phase 1 Children) and is a qualified Animal Osteopath and member of  Animal Biomechanical Professionals Australia.

When she’s not at work, Sarah enjoys playing with her animals and planning holidays. When at work, she enjoys telling you about them.
