Dr Alexandria Winch

Osteopath

When Alex was only 13 years old a Jiu Jitsu injury left her with the possibility of requiring knee surgery. A family friend offered to see if he could help; he was an Osteopath. With careful treatment, rehabilitation, supervision, guidance, and lots of patience, Alex’s knee recovered and her love and passion of osteopathy was born.

Alex has seen the debilitating effect headaches can have on a person’s daily routine; her mum has suffered from migraines for as long as Alex can remember, occasionally rendering her in bed for days. This has  left her with a burning desire to learn more about the causes of headaches, and how to effectively manage and treat them.

 

Women can suffer from many pregnancy related conditions - from the neck to the lower back, all the way down to the feet. It is through this time while the body is changing and growing a new little person, that mothers feel they need a little extra help. Alex loves to help women through their pregnancy to negate their niggling issues; make it as easy as possible for when the time comes to give birth.

 

Babies and children are another area where Alex is passionate about treating, as they can present the biggest challenges and the greatest learnings with often remarkable results as their bodies have not undergone years of 'desk-itis'' or poor posture.
