Simon completed his Bachelor of Clinical Science and Masters of Health Science at Victoria University. Originally he first became interested in Osteopathy after seeking advice for several sporting injuries of his own sustained whilst playing Rugby Union. Simon enjoyed the approach and results Osteopathy offered and pursued a career in the field.
Simon still plays rugby for the Melbourne RUFC, which he has been a member of for the past 17 years. In the off-season he tries to keep active by playing basketball, cycling and heading to the gym. Simon has a keen interest in lower limb and shoulder complaints and now working in a clinical setting he enjoys helping those people who sustain injuries get back to the activities they love best. He also commonly treats acute and long standing chronic conditions, including headaches, neck pain, and lower back pain.
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 further re-injury from occurring in the future.
