A big thank you to all the traders, the local community and of course our wonderful patients for being so welcoming to the Your Body Osteopathy team in our new Macleod premises. Our first newsletter for the year is packed with research, useful information, and a great special offer just for you!


We are a clinic that values and advocates new research to help us grow and learn. Here is an interesting research article that you might enjoy from the University of Melbourne that suggests that poor neck and back sitting posture has direct links to poor physical performance. Click here.


Dr. Luke McCarney BHlthSc BAppSc (Osteo) and BHlth & BiomedSc (Hons)
Dr. Luke discovered Osteopathy as a teenager when dealing with knee and ankle injuries playing basketball. When the opportunity arose for Luke to study Osteopathy, he took it with both hands and has not looked back since.
Luke utilises treatment techniques such as soft tissue massage, muscle stretching, joint mobilisation and joint manipulation as part of his consultation. He also has a focus on rehabilitative exercises as part of an overall management plan. After graduating as an osteopath, Luke decided to continue his tertiary education and undertook an honours degree.
Luke is a great addition to the YBO team and is always eager to lend a helping hand. If you have any queries please give us a ring 9431 6604.
