Our Osteopaths


Joel Bell

Osteopath and Podiatrist
Joel is the principal Osteopath at Active Osteopathy in South Perth , as well as being a Podiatrist – a unique combination of expertise in Western Australia.

Joel is married to Julie and the proud father of Finn, Mats and Jude.

After 10 years living and working in Antwerp, Belgium, Joel and his family returned to Perth in 2010 to open Active Osteopathy. While in Belgium Joel was managing his own private practice and loved the regular opportunity to lecture in post-graduate osteopathic courses in Belgium, Holland and Denmark.

Joel’s broad experiences as an Osteopath and Podiatrist give him perspective on ways to influence functional issues within the human body and a unique set of expertise to assess and address many common pain syndromes.

His own experience as a sportsman (Aust. Jnr hockey representative and WA Jnr baseball representative) and continuing commitment to staying fit (it is all about the bike!) have also helped him develop a well-rounded total approach to sports-related complaints.

Joel takes pride in providing highly individualized treatment which recognizes the multi-dimensional nature of most complaints.
