Dr Denis Yardin
Bachelor of Science

Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science)
M.H.Sc (Osteopathy)

Denis is from the beautiful island of Mauritius. His love of helping people with different conditions led him to move to Australia in 2005 to pursue studies in Nursing and then in Osteopathy. Denis has worked for more than 10 years in nursing in areas such as aged care, geriatric, general medical, surgical as well as orthopaedic nursing. Having acquired a valuable insight in what patients go through, has led to Denis’s interest in the care and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses.

Denis further improved his skills through the completion of his University studies in Osteopathy. He is passionate about using a holistic approach to assist the body’s self-regulating and self- healing mechanisms. Treatment with Denis involves taking a detailed clinical history and assessment and formulating a diagnosis to provide you with a treatment management plan. This plan also consists of exercises, an overall prognosis and helpful educational advice.

We are thrilled to welcome Denis into our clinic family as he looks forward to settling himself and his family in Canberra.
