Our osteopathic and chiropractic approach

We see a broad range of people and may assist with such complaints as neck, back and extremity pain, headaches, sporting injuries, chronic pain and work-related injuries.

We encourage physical activity as an essential part of recovery.
We like a hands-on approach alongside education. Techniques include soft tissue (massage), stretching, joint mobility and visceral techniques.
We like to help people understand their pain experience and find their own unique pathway to healthy movement and function.
We have a strong therapeutic alliance with many different professions and encourage a team approach to management of pain.

About Tarragindi Allied Health Barbara Bugeja

As an osteopath, Barb believes in taking a ‘big picture’ holistic approach to treatment. She is diagnostically curious on the complexities of what is contributing to an individual's pain, assessing each patients’ body to find the best way to assist in the improvement of movement patterns with the focus on return to activity or improvement of level of activity.

Barb treats patients using a broad range of techniques that include hands on manual therapy, evidence based education and advice, and ongoing self-advocacy and self-sufficiency using tools such as yoga. 

Barb is currently not taking new patients as she pursues further studies.

When not at the clinic, Barb is also heavily involved with mountain biking and RATS Cycling Club, learning to speak Greek or hiking the Larapinta Trail.
