Principal. Registered Osteopath
The Hills Osteopathic practice was established and is managed by Dr. Julian Howard.
In 1993 he experienced a life changing event. His son had a difficult birth which left him vomiting and unsettled. There appeared to be nothing that could be done for him, but then at 10 days old Julian took him to the Osteopathic Centre for Children in (Farringdon, London). Julian became fascinated by osteopathy and amazed by the range of illnesses and conditions that could be treated. Julian decided that if he ever changed career this was what he would like to do. Eventually he sold his business and went back to university to study for the BSc degree in Osteopathic Medicine. Julian graduated with First Class Honours. The wheel turned full circle, as in 2007 Julian completed a two years Masters in Paediatric Osteopathy at the Osteopathic Centre for Children, and has worked alongside some of the best osteopaths in the UK.
As a result of this, Julian has a particular interest and clinical experience in working with babies and children and pregnant and post-partum mums, as well as regular practice experience in private clinic since 2005. Following on from his successful UK practice, Julian set up Hills Osteopathic practice in Castle Hill after moving to Sydney in 2007.

Practitioner Training & Regulation
Osteopaths are skilled practitioners.
When studying in the UK Julian undertook a 4 year degree program which was underpinned by clinical training. Such training has a substantial overlap with traditional medical training, covering anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, bio-mechanics and clinical methods. Training also included time spent in the dissection rooms of University College Hospital London. With such experience osteopaths are able to identify conditions where osteopathy treatment is not appropriate and refer patients to a GP for further investigationJulian and all other registered osteopaths at Hills Osteopaths maintain ongoing CPD schedules as per quality framework expectations.
