We hope you have a lovely Easter and that Easter bunny brings you some yummy treats! Till we see you next, look after yourself.
The Ballarat Osteopathic Clinic team
Our newest osteopath at the clinic is Aidan Mill! Aidan is available for appointments Mondays and Thursdays from 8am.
Aidan fell in love with osteopathy as a teenager after being treated by his local osteopath for a sports injury. His fascination with the human body drove him to move from his hometown of Daylesford to pursue his career as an osteopath. Aidan graduated from RMIT with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy) and a Bachelor of Health Science, with strong ambitions to further his education in the future.
Aidan has a strong passion for sport and a keen interest in treating a wide variety of injuries, having also completed an internship with a successful sports medicine clinic in Melbourne. This involved him working as a qualified sports trainer, assessing and managing a wide array of musculoskeletal conditions.
Aidan understands that there are many aspects that contribute to an individual’s health, and prides himself on delivering holistic patient-centred care.
Aidan is looking forward to meeting new and existing clients of the clinic and helping them to achieve better health.
Easter and public holiday opening hours
Ballarat Osteopathic clinic will be closed on the following dates.
12th March (Labour day)
30th March (Good Frday) 2nd April (Easter Monday) 25th April (Anzac Day)
We will be open for business as per usual outside of these dates.
March and April are going to be busy months for both Sally and Kym who will be attending
professional development courses to further expand their knowledge base. (Don't worry, they're still available for appointments!)
They will both be attending a pain seminar in Melbourne to learn all things about pain science. Acute and chronic pain, how this affects the nervous system and how we can help those that suffer with it in a clinical setting.
Sally will continue on with a course looking at how to help those with chronic pain incorporating movement and exercise into their rehabilitation.
For all our golf enthusiasts, Sally will be attending a Titleist golf course, the Body-swing Connection. The course will look at how to optimise your golf swing and also give Sally the tools to help improve your swing with simple exercises and appropriate treatment.
Once she has completed the course, Sally can help get you on track for a better golf game! Stay tuned for appointments!
Kym will be attending the course, Managing Pain in pregnancy and beyond in April to further enhance her knowledge for all our soon to be and expecting mums.
Topics covered will include pelvic girdle pain, pelvic and upper limb neuralgias, neck, rib and low back pain. Kym will also be learning about some complaints that can present many years later, after a difficult delivery, such as prolapse and pudendal neuralgia.
The course will also include breastfeeding ergonomics and how to prevent future delivery-related complaints.
