Simon completed his Bachelor of Clinical Science and Masters of Health Science at Victoria University. He first became interested in Osteopathy after seeking advice for several sporting injuries sustained whilst playing Rugby Union. Simon enjoyed the approach and results Osteopathy offered and pursued a career in the field.
Simon represented the Melbourne RUFC for over 20 years as a player but has recently hung up the boots and moved into a coaching role. In the off-season he tries to keep active by playing tennis, cycling and heading to the gym.
Using a range of osteopathic manual techniques combined with exercise and lifestyle advice, he believes that good communication and patient education are paramount in helping improve the patient’s complaint, encouraging active recovery and increasing their understanding to prevent re-injury occurring in the future.
Simon has a keen interest in lower limb and shoulder complaints. Now working in a clinical setting he enjoys helping those who sustain injuries get back to the activities they love most. He commonly treats acute and long standing chronic conditions, including headaches, neck pain and lower back pain.
