Dr. Brayden Redden Osteopath

Born and raised in the Limestone Coast of South Australia, Brayden moved to Adelaide where he completed his secondary education at Prince Alfred College. He then moved to Melbourne to study osteopathy. He undertook his studies at Victoria University where he completed a Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science) and a Masters of Health Science (Osteopathy).

 

Brayden’s interest in osteopathy stems from his earlier sporting life where he consistently found himself injured and on the treatment table. After being to numerous manual therapists he was recommended to an osteopath. Brayden was intrigued by the osteopath’s treatment style and philosophies of the human body.

Brayden employs a structural approach to osteopathy where he relies on direct techniques such as Muscle Energy Technique, soft tissue, mobilisations and manipulations to help facilitate the rehabilitation process. He does not believe in a band-aid approach to treatment, instead he strives to find the root cause of the injury.

 

Brayden also understands the importance of biopsychosocial factors and how they can impact individuals and their pain. Brayden has a strong passion for biomechanics, exercise rehabilitation, patient education and empowerment. In Brayden’s free time you’ll find him out on the golf course or spending time with his friends and family down the beach.

Massage Therapist in Adelaide - Camilla Fogagnolo

Camilla Fogagnolo - Massage Therapist

I have worked professionally as a Massage Therapist since 2011, and trained in Dry Needling in 2014, which I have used extensively and to wonderful effect since. Although Massage was something I didn’t pursue until my 20s, I truly believe that it was something I was born to do. Since beginning my massage career in Tasmania, I have been blessed with clients from all walks of life, ages, and activity levels, who have responded extremely positively to my methods of treatment. 

 

I have competed in sport since the age of 5, and as would be expected, these decades have resulted in a few injuries! I mention this because I truly believe all these experiences have made me a better therapist, through not only allowing me to relate genuinely to clients, but also from the research into rehabilitative practices and exercises that I can now pass on. I am so excited and proud to be joining the team at Body Worx and cannot wait to work collaboratively alongside the specialists in this clinic.
