Dr Lauren Cook
I’m Lauren and I graduated from RMIT with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Osteopathy.
I’m so excited to be in a profession that allows me to continue to explore the workings of the human body and allows me to pass on my knowledge to help others
learn and heal. I’ve always been involved in sports and with that, my own injuries. I was, and still am, so fascinated with all the different components of movement, injury, pain, healing and adaptation.
The most important thing I’ve learnt is that the body doesn’t need to be fixed. But what it does need is a supportive environment and guidance in order to heal itself. As an osteo, that’s what I aim to do; figure out what your body needs in order to heal.
I enjoy treating patients who are open minded and want to play an active role in their healing. I enjoy talking to patients about the importance of strength and how the body was created for movement. I also have a soft spot for knee injuries as I have had a number of my own.
Outside osteo I’m a dedicated gym goer, a casual bartender and barister and mama to a 6 month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
