Dr. Saxon Woodroffe

OSTEOPATH

Saxon completed his Bachelor of Clinical Science and Masters of Osteopathic Science at Victoria University. He first became interested in Osteopathy after seeking advice for a sporting injury of his own sustained whilst playing Australian Rules football. Due to always being involved in sport, Saxon has seen his fair share of injuries and now working in a clinical setting he enjoys helping those people who sustain injuries get back to the activities they love best be it having a kick of local footy, dancing, a round of golf, running or the boot camp enthusiast. Aside from sporting injuries Saxon commonly treats acute and long standing chronic conditions, including headaches, neck pain, and lower back pain.

Using a range of osteopathic manual techniques combined with exercise and lifestyle advice, he believes that good communication and patient education are paramount in helping improve the patient’s condition; encouraging active recovery and increasing their understanding to prevent further re-injury from occurring in the future.
To this day, Saxon still plays local football and netball. In the off season, he loves staying active including running, swimming, and is always up for a physical challenge, having competed in triathlons and Tough Mudder several times.  When he isn’t exercising he enjoys the sunshine, escaping to the beach when he can.

From Keith Hodiak Jones to Swami Sitaramananda, Ruth White, Sandra Sabatini and Fiona McGovern to mention but a few.
