Dr Sarah Lal

Sarah started her health journey in the United Kingdom where she graduated from the prestigious British School of Osteopathy and came to Australia in 2015.  

Coming from a family with a strong medical background, Sarah has had years of close interactions with public healthcare systems in various European countries. Her educated decision to pursue alternative healthcare over reading medicine at university is driven by the ambition to treat a wide range of conditions using natural means and remedies. Sarah focuses in restoring health and approaches every person with a tailored plan to suit his or her needs. Sarah’s empathetic and kind nature will ensure that what is important to the patient will become important to her. Patients’ expectations are equally prioritised to give the best osteopathic advice to achieve satisfying results.

Sarah combines various techniques including anything from HVLA (spinal and peripheral) to functional, and a wide range of fascial and visceral technique. She does not believe in the 'crack and rub' treatment, but more in getting to know her patients and identifying causes of tensions and weaknesses with the aim to rebalance the body & restore function. 

Sarah also has a strong interest in womens health, pre-/post natal and paediatric osteopathy, and has completed seminars and hands-on work with children and expecting mothers.

What Techniques Does Dr Sarah Lal Utilise?

At Illawong Osteo, the techniques include:

  • Soft Tissue Massage and Stretching – with the goal of decreasing muscle tension in order to free up ‘stiff or fixated’ joints.
  • Manipulation – with the goal of either increasing joint movement or stabilising structures surrounding the joint.
  • Articulation/Mobilisation - with the goal of either increasing joint movement or stabilising structures surrounding the joint without a cavitation or ‘crack’ of a joint.
  • Viseral and Functional Osteopathy – all organs and vessels are suspended via ligaments on bones – just like muscles! Restrictions within internal viscera can therefore have an effect on the musculoskeletal system causing joint and muscle pain.
  • Dry Needling – with the goal of improving muscle strength, reducing muscle over-activity (or spasm) and increasing neural (your brain and nervous system’s) awareness.
  • Positional Release – with the goal of reducing muscle activity by moving the joint or muscle into its position of ease and normalising neural feedback to the central nervous system.
  • And many, many more.
