Dr. Edward Murphy Brown
(B.Clin.Sci (Osteo), M.Health.Sc (Osteo). VU
Registered Osteopath

Upon completing my studies in 2019 in Melbourne Victoria, I moved to Brisbane to pursue a career in osteopathy. With a passion for health and an inherited understanding of musculoskeletal conditions I have begun my own treatment and healing journey through Herbs on the Hill. Coupled with the natural and wholesome approach to heal viewed within Naturopathy, Osteopathy provides the perfect holistic manual therapy to couple the two professions and provide you with the best health outcome.

My personal interests primarily involve sport and treating athletes of all abilities and disciplines with a background of semi-professional soccer myself for over a decade, my passion for work in Osteopathy and sport are unparalleled.

Applying my skills and understanding of human biomechanics I have been able to help my patients their greatest potential outcomes and overall success. Successfully treating complaints such as; Headaches, general sprains and strains, Repetitive strain injuries, Whiplash related issues, Pregnancy related back and joint issues, postural issues and tendon pathologies most commonly related to my patients work, hobbies or lifestyle influences.

I enjoy seeing a wide variety of patient demographics and conditions with the view of continued movement and incorporative structured exercise being the key to achieving the best results for my patients after a consult and for the future. The treatment techniques I employ are primarily direct with the goal to restore optimum biomechanics and functionality for my patients to alleviate their symptoms.

Within a consult some general questions about your complaint and medical/ lifestyle history will be taken followed by a thorough musculoskeletal examination followed by treatment including if necessary massage, gentle articulation, Muscle energy technique (a form of active stretching), HVLA manipulation, Counterstain (an indirect functional myofascial release technique), dry needling , taping if required and a specific tailored exercise strategy to assist with speeding up your recovery and addressing your symptoms.

Thank you for taking the time to read through and I hope to see you soon.

Rebecca Malon

Rebecca is both an Osteopath and Clinical Nutritionist with over 10years experience who has completed further professional development and courses in women’s health and fertility support. Rebecca utilises nutritional compounding, supplements, diet, lifestyle advice and osteopathy to help those with chronic pelvic pain, hormonal imbalances, hypothalamic amenorrhoea, pre-conception, pregnancy and post-partum. Rebecca also sees couples struggling with fertility concerns and works to optimise chances of conception either naturally or in conjunction with a fertility specialist to provide care throughout IVF treatment.

Rebecca also offers individual nutrition plans for female athletes centred around their menstrual cycle to optimise performance and recovery. As a part of this service, Rebecca works closely with your coach to ensure the training plan is appropriate for the individual, the menstrual phase and ensures that nutrition supports the physical and mental demands. This area is a passion for Rebecca as many female athletes will lose their menstrual cycle and this is deemed ‘normal’ or insignificant. Hypothalamic amenorrhoea whilst common is not normal and you are not functioning at an optimal level. Rebecca has a personal background in triathlon and distance running at a competitive level and understands the demands of being an athlete. Remember if you exercise on purpose you are an athlete.

Rebecca brings a compassionate and empathetic approach to treatment and works with you to customise a realistic and achievable plan. When not in clinic Rebecca is either lecturing at Endeavour College or volunteering for Women’s Health Queensland and QENDO working to support women with endometriosis, adenomyosis and infertility. Otherwise, she will be at the beach with the family and Walter the dog.  Read more about Rebecca on her website
