The Christchurch earthquakes were the motivating factor in Mia’s decision to move to Sydney in 2012, which she considers a blessing in disguise, as she fell in love with Sydney and eventually became an Australian citizen.

Meet Dr Mia Rabjohn, the founding osteopath of Summer Hill Osteopathy, NSW.

Why did you become an osteopath?

When I was 12 years old, I injured my back carrying a stupidly heavily bag. After seeking treatment with a physiotherapist, to no avail, I saw a local osteo. The osteopath not only helped my back but she opened my eyes to my future and from there on my education choices were all directed towards enabling me to become an osteopath.

What do you enjoy the most about being an osteopath?

The ability to help people - not only in directly aiding their pain but also by helping educate them so to prevent future problems or further recurrences. I love the banter and the relationship developed with my patients, they're all such fabulous people and its a real privilege to be able to help them.

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

My two passions in life are osteopathy and wine. 
Osteopathy drove my world from when I was 12, but the study of wine has been a huge part of my life for the last decade - especially in the last few years as I've been working my way through the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) courses and now contemplating the two-year diploma!

Media Release: Lower back pain & Osteopathy

Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints seen by a GP or healthcare professional. It is estimated that over 80% of Australians will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. Lower back pain may be acute (new pain) or chronic (longstanding pain), and it can range from mild and annoying to severe and debilitating.

Osteopaths are health professionals who are highly trained to treat lower back pain. An osteopath will explain to you why your pain is present, assist to relieve it with manual therapy and identify any barriers to your recovery. During a consultation with an osteopath, your practitioner will first discuss your case and thoroughly assess your condition.
