About Us

Sutherland Osteopathy began when principal Kerrin Murnane embraced business ownership after working with some excellent osteopaths in their own practices.  Now entering its tenth year, Kerrin’s passion for starting Sutherland Osteopathy – using Osteopathy to support as many people as possible in their quest for optimal health – is just as strong.

Repeat business and word-of-mouth is testament to the service provided by the Sutherland Osteopathy team. The goal is to ensure Sutherland Osteopathy is not only a place where people come for pain relief, resolution and management of their ailments, but also a calm, friendly, welcoming and – dare we say, fun – environment. Natalie, our receptionist, will often ask what has prompted the bursts of laughter erupting from our treatment rooms!

Our mission: to have you leave feeling and functioning better than you did when you walked in.  We all love our chosen profession and strive for this to be reflected in the treatment we provide to our patients.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a hands on form of manual therapy with a particular focus on the musculoskeletal system.  Osteopaths believe that structure has a significant impact on function, and vica versa. Osteopaths focus on how the musculoskeletal system, nervous system, gastrointestinal system and circulation function as a holistic unit to promote mobility and improve health.

What is the Osteopathic Philosophy?

The Four Principles of Osteopathy:

  • Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
  • The body is a single dynamic unit of function; mind, body and spirit.
  • The body is capable of self-repair, self- healing and health maintenance.
  • Rational treatment is based on the employment of the above principles.
