About Us

At SoreBods we offer a hands on approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal pain whatever the origin. We provide cover under ACC for the treatment of injuries suffered by accident and provide exercise rehabilitation to aid recovery and programs for return to sports and restoration of lifestyle.

Osteopathy is often associated with musculoskeletal medicine – treating work injuries, arthritis and joint pain, sport injuries, back and neck pain, tension headaches, pregnancy and babies and other joint or muscle disorders.

Our Belief

Treatment for Elbow Pain, Treatment for  Hand and Wrist pain, Treatment for Shoulder Pain

While Osteopathy is amazing in so many ways, we also know that sometimes other factors need taking into account. At Sorebods we work with you to optimise your body in every way - restoring movement, reducing pain, strengthening and conditioning, postural alignment at your desk and car, exercise ideas & diet advice etc. Often simple changes or additions to your daily life can have massive impacts in how you feel.

Fraser-300x300.jpg

Fraser Roberts

Fraser has been treated by osteopaths since a young age, and has seen the various benefits of osteopathic treatment throughout a range of sporting injuries.

 

Seeing these changes that osteopathy made in his life pushed him towards a career in osteopathy, striving to achieve optimum health alongside those around him.

A multi-sport athlete (primarily squash, football, lacrosse, and trampolining), Fraser has vested interest in both injury prevention and rehabilitation.

 

Frasers Masters research was based around sleep and its relationship with pain and other common health problems. After completing that research he has become a proponent of the importance of the need for good sleep as a major health target and how to help people achieve that.

Vicki Cox

Vicki’s background in health and well-being has derived from an early interest in yoga movement and philosophy and ayurvedic therapy, which she studied while travelling in India in the 2008. After living in the UK and Europe for 15 years, she returned to the southern hemisphere where she became interested in osteopathy and its holistic approach to individual well-being, having many similarities to the yogic view of health and healing.

 

She began her osteopathic journey in Australia and mid-way through her studies, moved from Byron Bay to Auckland with her young family, to be closer to whanau and finish her master’s degree in osteopathy. She has experience in treating a broad variety of musculoskeletal conditions ranging from acute sports and recreational injury, to chronic and age related biomechanical changes.

 

Outside of the practice Vicki, her family and friends, make the most of the many activities that the great outdoors of Aotearoa has to offer, both coastal and in the snowy mountains.
