Wodonga Osteopathic Clinic - Adam MasonAdam Mason

B.App.Sc (Clinical science) & B. Osteopathic Science
Registered Osteopath OST0001174660

Adam is a graduate of RMIT 2001 Bachelor of Applied Science (Clinical Science), and Bachelor of Osteopathic Science (with Hons 1st Class). Adam’s osteopathic career began with 2 years solid grounding work at the busy Bendigo Osteopathic Clinic which introduced him to a diverse range of patients with the support mentoring of experience osteopath David Whittaker.

Registration to work in the UK was gained in 2004 following further assessment and testing, which enabled a year working near Bristol in a multidisciplinary practice. During this time, Adam completed courses in Dry Needle Therapy in London and then later in Melbourne.

Returning to his home region of North East Victoria, Adam opened the Wodonga Osteopathic Clinic in 2005, renovating the current clinic building to accommodate a dedicated clinic of six osteopaths. He has developed a particular interest in assisting those with chronic conditions, particularly those who struggle to manage pain associated with osteoarthritis in their senior years.

Married and with 3 beautiful daughters, Adam enjoys a joke, and continues to talk about getting fitter on his mountain bike. He finds providing care for his community an Osteopath thoroughly engaging and rewarding.

Wodonga Osteopathic Clinic - Andrew GottAndrew Gott
B. Ost.Sc, B.App.Sc (Clinical)
Registered Osteopath OST0001248632

Andrew graduated from RMIT University in 2000 after completing a five year double degree in Osteopathic Science and Applied Clinical Science. He practised osteopathy in Fairfield and Bayswater (suburban Melbourne) from 2001-2004 before relocating to Albury-Wodonga in January 2005. He treats patients of all ages, and for any condition that can benefit from osteopathy. Andrew grew up enjoying sports and physical activities. He has been a swimmer and played water-polo for many years.

Andrew has a good understanding of many sporting injuries and the effects of overtraining on the body. This comes from his time training at the AIS and with the Australian water polo team from 1997-2004. He can help athletes using his knowledge of strength and flexibility training, combined with osteopathic treatment, to gain a better understanding of how to manage their training and injuries. In June 2010 Andrew toured with the Australian Water-polo team as their osteopath. However, Andrew enjoys treating all patients, not only athletes and sports-people.

She has worked in clinics in Melbourne and locally before joining the team at Wodonga Osteopathic clinic in 2013. Rebecca is passionate about Osteopathy and enjoys the challenge that comes from seeing a diverse range of conditions and patients in her daily practice. In 2012, after seeing a number of patients suffer from stress related conditions, Rebecca decided to complete a Radiant Light Yoga teacher training course with the aim of using yoga’s breathing, stretching and meditation techniques to better help her patients.

Rebecca has attended various postgraduate courses both here in Australia and the US. Her post graduate study has been focused on the treatment of the obstetric patients, neurological and orthopaedic conditions of everyday osteopathic practice and osteopathy in the cranial field.

In her spare time Rebecca likes to spend time with her family, cook and practice yoga. She also has a special interest in the Arts after being a performer and Osteopath for the Flying Fruit Fly Circus.


Wodonga Osteopathic Clinic - Sabine MortizKathrine Coleman
Kate completed her osteopathic training at the University of Western Sydney in 2007 obtaining a Bachelor of Applied Science (osteopathy) and Master of osteopathy.

Since then she has worked in clinics in both Albury-Wodonga and Melbourne. Kate returned back to her home town in 2016 to work in her original place of practice at Wodonga Osteopathic Clinic. The move back to the region has also allowed her to be closer to her family.

Kate has spent her time in practice treating a variety of general musculoskeletal complaints including lower back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches and migraine, upper and lower limb complaints, arthritic conditions as well as sporting injuries. She also has an interest in treating jaw pain, tendonitis as well as foot and ankle complaints. Kate aims her treatment towards improvements and preventing re-occurrence by combining manual therapy sessions with rehabilitation advice. She uses stretching and soft tissue, manipulation and mobilisation, dry needling, cupping, muscle energy technique as well as gentle release techniques.

Outside of work Kate enjoys down-hill snow skiing during the winter and a mix of recreational riding and hiking in the warmer months. She looks forward to building a good rapport with her patients.

Annabel RanfordAnnabel Ranford
Mast. Health Science (Osteopathy)
Registered Osteopath OST0001934849

Annabel graduated from Victoria University in 2014 with a Master of Health Science (Osteopathy). During her final year she was selected for an internship at SportsMed Mumbai, a sports medicine hospital in India where she observed orthopaedic surgeries such as ACL reconstructions and provided rehabilitation care to patients.

As part of her Master’s degree she performed research on injury prevention for diesel mechanics in the workplace. An appropriate topic as Annabel is secretly a bit of a rev-head, who would one day love to work in Formula 1 racing.

Annabel has additional training in Dry Needling and is a Rehab Level 1 pilates instructor and enjoys incorporating her pilates training into her treatments by prescribing strengthening and flexibility exercises. A soccer player herself, Annabel has worked with professional athletes such as Melbourne City Soccer Club and for Iron Man Australia. She has an interest in treating sports injuries and has an active approach to injury recovery and prevention.

Annabel’s treatments are respectful to each individual and techniques are tailored to suit the needs of the patient. Her calm and caring personality is always looking to get the best from her patients, whether it be on the sporting field or in day to day challenges at work or home.
