DR ALEX DOUGLAS
I love my career as an osteopath, as I get to meet patients from all walks of life. I have worked with elite athletes, FIFOs, office workers, surfers, the elderly, and everyone in between, as the principles of osteopathy remain the same – aiming to return the body to how it was designed to move.
Osteopathy has always played a big part of my life, having grown up with a father who is an osteopath. This has directly contributed to my style of treatment using both a direct approach with soft tissue massage and joint manipulation and an indirect approach using gentle cranial techniques. I have found that combining different modalities of treatment is beneficial to the overall outcome for my patients and I have developed a strong interest in treating headache and neck related complaints.
I treat my patients with a current evidence-based approach, drawing on traditional osteopathic principles and techniques, and incorporating the use of dry needling into my practice where appropriate. I hold a double bachelor’s degree majoring in Osteopathy from RMIT, Melbourne and following graduation I lived and practiced in Sydney before calling Perth home.
Outside of osteopathy, I am a dad to a gorgeous little dude, love live music, great coffee, and the beach.
