Dr. Caroline Teh (Senior Osteopath)

Dr Caroline Teh (nee Gunning), is a fully qualified, registered Osteopath and Past State Treasurer of Osteopathy Australia. Caroline attained her double degree in Osteopathy from RMIT University, graduating with distinction and was awarded dux of her class.

Throughout 2004, Caroline returned to RMIT as a member of their teaching staff, working as a classroom tutor and clinical supervisor. This role was not only educational but provided support and encouragement to students in the infancy of their osteopathic career.

Prior to commencing her Osteopathic qualifications in 1999, Caroline successfully completed a degree in Batchelor of Applied Science (Human Movement). During her studies, she undertook electives such as rehabilitation of the injured athlete, care and prevention of athletic injuries and hydrotherapy.

Caroline has extended and consolidated her knowledge in the field of exercise conditioning and rehabilitation by undertaking various positions as a sports trainer. During 2001 and 2002 Caroline was associated with the Blackburn Football Club, working under Dr. Jason Stone.

In 2004, Caroline joined Waverley City Netball Association to head up the Medical Faculty for the Waverley Netball Centre’s Saturday competition.
In 2005 Caroline was appointed Head Trainer and Club Osteopath at Forest Hill Football Club, a role which she held until 2009 before starting her family.

Although her background is in the sporting field, Caroline is enthusiastic about Osteopathy and patient care in general. As a mother to two young girls she has a keen interest in the area of maternal health. She enjoys treating pregnant women during the prenatal period, to alleviate the strains of pregnancy and prepare them for birth, and also during the post-natal recovery phase. This interest further extends to the maternal-infant relationship and therefore the treatment of babies and children.

Her areas of interest include:
– Pregnancy and the post natal period
– Babies and children
– Pre and post operative knee injuries
– Jaw pain and dysfunction
– Plantar fasciitis
– Sciatica
