Ones and Twos Occupational Therapy has been developed by Christine Shearer-Smith (formerly Christine Tracey) to help children who have toileting difficulties. Commonly these children range in age from 2 years to 16 years and may be simply having difficulties with toilet training (i.e. they will only poo in their nappy), or alternatively be suffering from problems relating to long term constipation and soiling. The service also provides assistance to children over the age of 5 years who continue to wet the bed at night, or who have the added complication of wetting themselves during the day.

Sprenger Podiatry is one of Brisbane leading Podiatry practices, specialising in all aspects of conservative conditions of adult and paediatric foot and ankle.
We have over 20 years’ experience between our 3 Podiatrists (Nicholas Sprenger, Benjamin Harwin & Adie Burrow). We prescribe both custom and non-custom orthoses of both soft and rigid nature; this prescription is dependent on each patient’s requirements and is not a one size fits all approach. We also perform partial or full toenail removal, with cauterisation to treat ingrown toenails.
Adolescents, in particular adolescent athletes , require physiotherapists who understand them and their bodies and will know what to look for to not only support their sports career but also prevent long term chronic problems arising.
That's why Dr Loretta O'Sullivan-Pippia created twelve9teen sports physiotherapy for adolescents and why it's the only place to go if you're an active teenager looking for a physiotherapist.
