Dr Scott Toniazzo (Osteopath)

Scott has over 10 years of experience in numerous roles providing osteopathic care in private practice clinics, an aged care setting, football and netball clubs and associations.

Keeping active throughout our whole life is such an important message and ideal to promote and Scott is a big believer in this. Whether it’s walking, training for the next big run, playing social sport, or doing the gardening; it’s all important. With osteopathic care, Scott wants to help you resolve your musculoskeletal injuries and complaints, so that being active is always an option!

Scott is a nationally endorsed provider of Netball Australia’s KNEE program, which aims to reduce the incidence of ACL injuries by educating coaches and players to optimise technique and enhance efficiency of movement.

He is a strong advocate for community sport and has recently finished a 10 year stint as president and committee member at St Michael’s Netball Club. 

Dr Todd Stewart (Osteopath)

Todd is an experienced Osteopath with many years involved helping people getting moving again. He has a passion to educate his patients about their specific injuries and teach them how to be a part of their recovery. With a keen interest on lower back injuries, neck pain, headaches and jaw complaints, Todd takes a holistic approach to treatment and attempts to identify the cause of each persons injury. Whether this be a dysfunction elsewhere in the body or hobbies/activities the patient does as an activity of daily living. 

Outside of work Todd is a father to an adorable toddler Charlie who keeps him busy. He enjoys watching sport on the weekends, gardening and cooking new things. Sport has always been something Todd has loved to be involved with and this has seen him be involved with local football at the East Brighton football club as a head trainer, and a soigneur to the CharterMason cycling team who raced in the NRS.

Dr Jaynika Vaghani (Osteopath)

Jaynika is dedicated to a true whole person approach to treatment and management.

Jaynika graduated from RMIT and has developed a treatment style that is direct and thorough, encompassing all aspects of Osteopathy. Communication and a mutual understanding of your individual problem is essential to help us find health and movement in your body.

In the past she have worked as a sports trainer at Balwyn Tigers football club, as well as an intern at the RMIT sports academy. Her interest in sports related treatment combined with my knowledge of Osteopathy has enhanced my understanding of the roles of biomechanics, balance and flexibility within each part of the body and how important they are to achieving a pain free lifestyle.

She uses this experience when approaching all patients, for all ages and conditions.

Jaynika have a particular interest in sports, acute pain management and long term and repetitive strain, especially flare ups of old injuries, as well as day to day neck and back pain. Continued personal research has given her a great understanding of how each part of our body works together as a machine, allowing us to investigate what the painful region is being affected by and understanding the inter-relationships of all the structures in our body.

The focus of her continued professional development so far has been in the areas of dry needling and further research into understanding how our brain adapts specific thinking patterns as a response to trauma and injuries, and learning to re-train these thinking patterns to restore balance within the body.

Outside of the clinic she enjoys dancing as a part of a hip hop dance crew, looking after her body through fitness and weight lifting. And of course indulging in her love for food by trying out as many different cuisines as I can.

As well as English, Jaynika also speaks Hindi and Gujarati.

She has worked in various settings including private practice, workplace health, fitness clubs, and community health over the past 13 years which has allowed her to work with a

diverse range of people and professions.  

Maddy works with men and women of all ages, fitness levels and abilities and is passionate about assisting her patients to undertake the correct type of exercise for their individual concerns.  Although she enjoys working with a wide range of conditions, she has a particular interest in postural imbalances and the use of corrective exercise to restore function and balance to the body.

Outside of work, Maddy loves being outdoors and enjoys keeping active through hiking and sailing. Maddy spends most weekends sailing on Port Phillip Bay and has competed at State, National and World Championship levels. Maddy also loves travelling, eating out and socialising with friends.
