Osteopathy

Deepak has been in practice for 30 years, having graduated from the prestigious British School of Osteopathy in London. He has taught internationally and established The Osteopathic Centre in Sydney in 1999 when he arrived to Australia. Recently, he has moved with his family to Adelaide and established The Body Worx.

His work has featured in The Sydney Morning Herald, Woman’s Weekly and on SBS Radio. Deepak has a strong belief in educating and empowering his clients to a rapid recovery , providing cutting-edge Osteopathy adapted to the modern world.

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.
