Dr Shayne Day
BASc Osteopathic Medicine/Osteopathy
Shayne is a registered Osteopath who has worked in Brisbane for 24 years after practicing for 3 years in Auckland. Shayne first discovered
osteopathy when he received relief for chronic pain in his back and pelvis due to his auto-immune condition. After previously trying physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage and acupuncture without much success he was amazed at the results he received from such a gentle approach. Within a year he was studying at RMIT and the philosophy of Osteopathy has been a guiding influence for him since.
Due to his own experience, he has a keen interest in auto-immune
conditions and gut health. He has undertaken post graduate training in the biodynamics of cranial Osteopathy and concussion management and loves to help people with complex conditions including migraine headaches, vertigo and whiplash. He has vast experience of treating babies and children including his own children who have all been treated minutes after their birth. As a parent he understands the benefit that helping infants and children brings to the whole family.
Shayne has recently relocated his practice to Samford and joins the West End team on Wednesdays.
