Dr Shaun Richardson Osteopath

 

Dr Shaun Richardson

B.Sci (Clin.Sci) M.H.S (Osteo)

 

Shaun is a passionate and enthusiastic osteopath who strongly believes in maximising patients' potential. He strives to motivate people to improve their health, and focuses upon improving the efficiency of their movements.

 

Coming from a sporting background, he has a special interest in managing sports injuries. He has significant experience in gait analysis, biomechanics and footwear. He works with all populations (office workers, tradespeople, young and old) to improve mobility, promote postural awareness and build strength. He enjoys creating exercise rehabilitation programs for people, to minimise the chance of injuries recurring (we can also take patients into a gym to show how to exercise safely).

 

Shaun has undertaken further study in Dry Needling (Manual Medicine Australia), Biomechanical Assessment of Athletes (New York Sports Medicine) Medical Management and Diagnoses of Hip Injuries (Epworth/Complete Sports Care) and Functional Movement (The Functional Movement Group). Both Shaun and Claire continue to undertake professional development courses regularly.

 

When not at work, Shaun plays basketball, and enjoys camping with Claire and his mates in his ancient four wheel drive.

Claire is an experienced osteopath who loves consulting with a wide variety of patients, including children*, tradespeople, desk workers, pregnant women and older people. Claire has a particular interest in assisting with headaches and TMJ dysfunction (Jaw pain) as well as chronic and complex pain.

Claire has undertaken further study in the field of chronic and complex pain, and aims to assist those with chronic (longstanding) pain through pain education and team care strategies. 

 

Claire has been active in the media, and on behalf of Osteopathy Australia, has written blogs and commentary on many topics surrounding musculoskeletal health. See our Blog and Media section for more info.

 

Claire has a firm emphasis on evidenced based therapy, and as such, has undertaken further study of evidence based interventions in many areas.

 

These include: Explaining the neuroscience of complex and chronic pain (Beyond mechanical pain), Dry Needling (Manual Medicine Australia), Management of Tendon injuries (Complete Sports Care), Biomechanical Assessment of Athletes (New York Sports Medicine), Functional Movement (The Functional Movement Group) and Ergonomic Risk assessment (Corporate Work Health Australia).

  

When Claire isn’t working, she’s begging Shaun to allow them to get a pet dog, or fawning over the next delicious recipe she’s planning to cook
