Matthew is an experienced, enthusiastic and dynamic Osteopath who enjoys treating people of all ages and with a wide range of musculoskeletal complaints. He incorporates a number of treatment techniques in his consultations, including “direct” techniques such as mobilisation, soft tissue techniques and manipulative therapy to get the most out of the body’s response to Osteopathy. Matthew enjoys helping educate his patients with exercise and lifestyle advice to give them the tools to optimise their well being outside of the treatment room.
Matthew regularly undertakes further study, including courses on running and lower limb biomechanics, chronic pain management and breathing dysfunction. He has also privately tutored osteopathic students from Victoria University.
Matthew is particularly interested in the treatment and rehabilitation of postural and sports injuries. Having a background in competitive rowing, as well as previously being a senior sports trainer at a Melbourne Eastern League football club for two years, he has gained consistent hands-on experience in sports medicine. Since graduating from Victoria University in 2008, Matt has treated all types and levels of athletes including runners, power-lifters, ballet dancers, Olympic wrestlers, triathletes and cyclists.
Matthew is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at MOSIP.
