Dr Francois Naef (Osteopath) is a fully qualified and registered Osteopath (Master of Osteopathic Medicine, Bachelor of Clinical Sciences) and a member of the Australian Osteopathic Association.
With previous experience in exercise prescription and rehabilitation, Francois offers treatments tailored to the needs of individual patients to help their recovery from pain or injury. While he treats a wide range of conditions, Francois has a special interest in sports injuries and their prevention. As an osteopath (Master in Osteopathic Medicine at Southern Cross University) Francois treats the musculoskeletal systems using safe and gentle manual techniques with a wholistic approach. After a through history and clinical assessment is carried out, treatment techniques range from soft tissue treatment and stretching to joint mobilisation, and may include a lifestyle review and functional exercises. Francois considers that an active collaboration between the patient and practitioner is the key to an effective treatment outcome.
Alongside osteopathic training, Francois uses his extensive previous experience in athlete training to provide his patients with a personalised health care.
We are very excited to announce that Francois will be joining us back in the practice from the 7th of November 2023 on Tuesdays and Fridays.
