Osteopathy

At Williamstown Health + Lifestyle, our Osteopaths understand injury and pain. We know pain can be caused by many things, affecting various areas of the body. Our ability to listen, assess and accurately diagnose each patient successfully, means we can work with individuals on a Osteopathy treatment plan that delivers results.

Our expertise in Osteopathy allows us to effectively treat back, neck and shoulder pain, sports injuries, chronic pain and acute trauma, headaches, migraines and repetitive strain, as well as sciatica, nerve pain and pre and post pregnancy discomfort.

Osteopath Yuma Hemphill is the testament to the depth of care patients feel with the right health expert by their side. Those in his care are quick to point out that they can tell him anything that is going on in their life, feedback he never takes for granted. “The solid relationships I form with my patients motivate me to always ensure the best level of care through a range of different modalities.” For Yuma, allowing patients to take control of their health goals by giving them the tools to do so is the reward.

This early insight makes Alex the perfect choice to treat newborns, babies and children. “I once got told I was better than Santa Clause,” Alex recalls. “If that is not a compliment I don’t know what is!”

Osteopath Loren Gribble knows that pain can be a frightening experience. “Having the support of someone who can listen and educate you makes a world of difference,” she says. The healing process takes time, so to prevent an injury returning, a combination of hands on treatment is essential, she adds. “Working with a multidisciplinary team means we can achieve great things together. Not everyone will respond to one treatment, so having many options is a huge benefit for patients.”
