Spring Osteo Clinic is excited to welcome our new osteopath, Dr Josh Wood to the team.
Josh’s main areas of interest are sports injuries and chronic pain recovery and rehabilitation. He enjoys aiding sports players (regardless of level) to get back to the sport they enjoy and gains satisfaction seeing patients with chronic pain improve and regain the ability to perform tasks they had previously lost. ‘Osteopathy is an excellent choice for those suffering a debilitating condition as it provides a holistic approach that allows resolution to the issue but also ideally reduces the chance of the same injury occurring by addressing causative factors’ says Josh.
Josh’s interest in osteopathy started when he was first treated for his own sports injuries. He was attracted to the benefits osteopathy granted him and sought to impart the benefit onto others. Today, Josh likes to employ a direct approach to his treatments, he looks at his patients primary issue as well as why the injury or pain occurred. He is committed to personalising his patients’ treatments rather than providing a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Josh has two years experience treating in a supervised osteopathic clinic. He has also worked as an osteopathic intern at Victorian Police, reviewing the Academy training schedule in order to reduce the amount of injuries the recruits suffered during training.
Prior to becoming an osteopath Josh worked as a trainer for various local football clubs, giving him a thorough understanding and experience in acute sports injuries. He has also assisted in strength and conditioning programs for netballers, runners and swimmers, and aided golfers in injury rehabilitation.
Josh has a rich sports background having played hockey, swimming, basketball, athletics and volleyball. He currently plays football and golf.
