Dr Maddi Traeger – Osteopath
**Please note Maddi is on maternity leave from 8/07/19 until further notice**
Maddi is a dedicated and caring osteopath who strives towards the best outcome for her patients. She has a blended treatment style using both strong direct, and more gentle indirect techniques that are tailored to the individual patient. Through clear treatment goals, she endeavours to get to the cause of the issue, helps patients understand their condition, and empowers them to manage their own health and well-being.
Growing up in NSW and QLD, she herself was treated by an Osteopath throughout childhood from a young age and when looking what to study at University, Osteopathy was an obvious choice. From the first day of University Maddi loved the hands-on and practical approach; she knew that Osteopathy was going to be her calling.
Maddi graduated from RMIT with a bachelor of health science and a bachelor of applied science (osteopathy). During her studies Maddi became fascinated with anatomy and became a tutor in the laboratory where she ended up teaching for 3 years while completing her degrees.
Maddi’s passion for Paediatrics and Pre/Post-Natal Health stemmed from her own childhood treatments and grew while studying. This led her to undertake observations with numerous osteopaths around Australia who treated children for her to gain further knowledge. Additionally she has completed several external short courses in the field of Pregnancy and Paediatrics in the final years of her degrees to broaden her skills and expertise.
Supporting mothers with their breast feeding choices is something Maddi is also very passionate about. She helps give mums a network of support to try and overcome any issues affecting their babies feeding and comfort.
In her downtime Maddi likes spending time with her family, watching movies, bushwalking, camping, and relaxing with a nice book.
Maddi enjoys treating all patients of all ages from babies to elderly; tradies to office workers. She has helped whole families achieve improved mobility and health, and would be pleased to see if she can help you. You can book an appointment with Maddi on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
