Dr Jack Roberts
Jack has been practicing Osteopathy since 2014. He completed his five years of university training at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Bundoora, Victoria. Entering the profession, Jack worked in clinics in Essendon and North Melbourne, exposing him to a variety of conditions and giving him the chance to help countless patients to overcome their pain and injuries.
In 2019 Jack began working in Bendigo at Paleo Osteo helping patients within the Bendigo community reclaim their health. Enjoying his time in Bendigo, Jack looked to settle in long term and in 2020 he took over the business now known as The Osteo Team.
Jack discovered osteopathy as a youngster growing up in Cobram. He was referred to an osteopath by his coach after suffering a muscle tendon tear playing football. Prior to this he had tried weeks of rest, massage and physiotherapy to no avail, but after seeing an osteopath was back on the footy field the same week pain free. The osteopath's unique hands on approach to diagnosis and treatment, as well as the results it produced, sparked an interest in Jack to pursue a career in the profession.
Jack is primarily a hands-on practitioner, and is known for his compassionate and easy-going demeanor. He aims to "not only treat the symptoms, but the cause of your pain", as he as found this achieves lasting results in his patients. He has taken a professional interest in treating chronic back pain and headaches having had family members suffer these issues, giving him a greater understanding of the toll they can have on a person's quality of life. Additionally, due to his sporting background as a football player, trainer and coach, Jack enjoys helping those with sports injuries get back to playing as soon as possible.
