Meet Dr Saul Smith (Osteopath) from Osteopaths of Ivanhoe, Victoria. 

Why did you become an osteopath?

My passion for Osteopathy was sparked through football injuries as a youngster where I was first exposed to the body's ability to heal and repair under the guide of appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.

What do you enjoy the most about being an osteopath?

It's a privilege to wake up every morning and go to work knowing you can make a difference to other peoples lives. I also love the variety in what comes with being an Osteopath. Everybody's "body" tells a different story.

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

I love watching all sports, cant get enough of reading books and enjoy spending time with the family particularly my new little son Jude, who's my new obsession!

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.
