Dr Adrian Osypiv BSc (Chiro), BAppSc (Clinical) | Chiropractor
Dr Adrian Osypiv was born and raised in the suburbs of Melbourne and completed his chiropractic double degree at RMIT University in 1996. It wasn’t long after graduation that he headed north to chase the warmer weather and settled in SEQ where he’s been based for the last 15 years.
His intentional focus was and is to help entire families reach their full health potential through the use of natural chiropractic care. That meant caring for newborns to grandparents and everyone in between. Not too long after moving he started his own chiropractic clinic in Maroochydore on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. After eventually selling the clinic to do some extended travel overseas, Adrian has worked both as an associate chiropractor and for the last 4 years as a locum around various practices within Australia.
He is very enthusiastic about returning to full time practice so he can once again be an integral part of and witness the long range benefits experienced by those under regular chiropractic care. Adrian holds the passionate and logic belief that if most of us visit a dentist simply because we have teeth then it should be no different when considering chiropractic spinal checkups, that’s as long as you have a backbone, and we all do! Early detection and management simply makes much more sense.
Adrian’s techniques include Diversified, Thompson Drop Piece, and Activator along with other manual and low force techniques.
In his spare time Adrian enjoys being outdoors, exercising, socialising and loves his tennis, golf and running.
