Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    Depending on the range of conditions that we see, the common symptoms that people will present with are generally things that prevent them from carrying out their activities of daily living, whether it be work-related symptoms of pain and stiffness through certain joints or limitations to their sporting or physical activity endeavours that prevent them from effectively carrying our their goals, their sporting or exercise goals.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    The treatments that I offer my patients include manual therapy, including soft tissue release and joint mobility. It also includes neuromobility work, exercise therapy, acupuncture and vestibular and oculomotor assessment and retraining.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    One of the areas that I do a lot of work in is around concussion. My work within concussion is multi-faceted. I currently undertake research in the area of concussion, as well as present across a range of conferences and so on. The work specifically involves narrowing down where the symptoms of concussion are coming from, where the symptoms of head injury are coming from, whether it be from the brain, from the oculomotor, vestibular or the cervical spine. Once the origin of symptoms is established, the next step is formulating a targeted treatment program for those individual areas.

    In terms of the other subspecialties that I work with, I see a lot of spinal conditions as well as foot and ankle conditions. My current and previous experience within sport and football have involved a lot of lower limb injuries, including the management of hip and groin.
