Jennifer is the founding practitioner of Jennifer Paull and Associates, and has practised in the Drummoyne and Five Dock areas since 1989. During that time she has completed regular post graduate studies, including overseas conferences and courses in various Osteopathic approaches. She has a wide range of techniques which she uses within the osteopathic philosophy of healthcare. (Follow the link to the OA website for more about the philosophy and techniques of osteopathy.)
Our clinic is a general practice, using osteopathic skills to manage people of all ages, with a wide range of conditions and symptoms, including acute low back pain, neck pain and sports (or other) injuries. Jennifer has a particular interest and expertise in care during pregnancy, childcare and care for the elderly.
Jennifer’s own experience of debilitating pain following a major car accident in 1975 have been foundational in her approach. Emerging research has reinforced her impression that ‘hands on’ therapy combined with postural advice, exercise therapy and a better understanding of their condition often helps clients with pain reduction and improvement in their quality of life.
Prior to retraining as an osteopath Jennifer spent 12 years teaching Mathematics in secondary schools in various country areas of NSW. She has combined her passions for health care and education in a variety of ways:
- lecturing in the Osteopathic programme at UWS,
- developing the Continuing Professional Development programme which is now mandatory in the profession,
- mentoring many associates,
- involvement with the accreditation of university courses in osteopathy in both Australia and New Zealand, including as (past) Accreditation Chair of the government appointed regulatory body.
Jennifer has always been active member of Osteopathy Australia (formerly the Australian Osteopathic Association) and has held various positions on State Council. She was the ministerial appointment on the NSW Osteopaths Registration Board (2005-2010). Jennifer also provides expert opinions in legal matters.
