Daniel is a passionate and skilled osteopath who aims to understand your needs and expectations to create a suitable and effective treatment plan for your pain. He enjoys helping and improving the health of people who are suffering from both short and long term pain.
Daniel studied at Victoria University, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Clinical Sciences) and Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) back in 2010. He then undertook an internship in a Melbourne Osteopathic clinic to further develop his osteopathic skills before returning to regional Victoria. Since then he has worked in numerous busy and well respected clinics in Victoria as well as an active involvement with many elite athletes. He relocated to Byron Bay in February 2016.
He has a keen interest in treating people who suffer from headaches, neck pain, knee pain, low back pain and postural related injuries. Daniel always strives to help you return to health as quickly as possible. He encourages you take an active involvement in your recovery, often prescribing exercise and lifestyle changes that can help to manage and prevent pain long term.
Amongst his extra training includes work with the Titliest Performance Institute. There he worked with practitioners and golf pros from across Australia and the USA whom instruct the world’s best golfers learning how to not only reduce pain but improve performance in the golf swing. He is now TPI certified to perform golf assessments (www.mytpi.com) and loves enabling you to hit the ball further, with more consistency and less pain.
He is also proficient in running analysis and utilise video analysis to get you running longer distances pain free. So if your suffering from exertional lower leg pain, plantar fasciopathy, Achilles tendinopathy, calf pain, medial tibial stress syndrome, patellofemoral pain, iliotibial band syndrome, patellar tendinopathy, hamstring injury including proximal tendinopathy and gluteal tendinopathy pop in and see how altering your technique can help reduce these annoying injuries long term.
Daniel believes in an evidence informed approach to treatment, utilising research, his clinical experience and knowledge from his mentors. He utilises a direct structural approach including soft tissue massage, dry needling, muscle energy technique (MET), articulation and high velocity low amplitude (HVLA). Daniel endeavours to combine this with his sound knowledge around pain science and the central mediators of pain to give you the best tools available to be able to achieve your goals (less pain, increased performance, better quality of life etc.)
He is a strong advocate about the role that Osteopathy has to play in the medical landscape and regularly spends time listening to lectures and observing other health care professions including, but not limited to Sports Medicine Doctors, Neurologists, Pain Specialists, Orthopedic Surgeons, General Practitioners, Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists and Podiatrists. This helps him to develop not only his own skills, but to be more aware of the skill sets of other health care providers, thus allowing him to refer appropriately when required.
