Miranda Cox (Osteopath)

 

Why did you become an Osteopath?

I come from a family of manual therapists, my father is an osteopath and my brother is a myotherapist. This has acted as an inspiration for me to launch my own career in osteopathy. Over the years I have added to my repertoire by training in dry needling and myofascial cupping. I’m passionate about discussing health, wellbeing and optimal body function and its relationship with osteopathy.

What do you enjoy the most about being an Osteopath?

I come from a highly active sporting back ground in sprinting and understand the various pressures put on both body and mind, this helps guide me in my holistic approach to treatment. I use a range of different manual techniques as well as rehabilitation exercises in the treatment and prevention of sporting injuries. I love helping my patients, seeing them get better with reduced pain. One of the most fulfilling aspects of this profession is the patient interaction and watching them achieve things they hadn't been able to do before.

 

What other hobbies or activities do you enjoy outside of Osteopathy?

In my spare time I train up to 8 times a week in the gym and on the track and compete on most weekends all over Australia. I enjoy shopping, travelling and chilling out with friends over a latte with one sugar!

The following is a snapshot of some budget items that may impact you, your patients, your business or the broader health system.
