OSTEOPATH | b.app.sci(clin.sci)m.h.sci(osteo)
Dan is one of our Osteopaths. He joins our osteopathic team while being mentored by Bec and Simmone. Dan is skilled in the osteopathic treatment process as part of our osteopathic team.
After leaving school and completing a Science degree at Melbourne University, Dan found himself looking into options in the health care field. Successful treatment by a local osteopath on his various football injuries sparked a keen interest in the holistic approach Osteopathy offered – and his passion for the field began. Dan completed his internship at Total Balance and has hit the ground running becoming a part of the Total Balance family.
Dan is very passionate and enthusiastic about osteopathy and loves delving into every single case and finding the true cause of your condition.
He integrates rehabilitation with his manual treatments, allowing for the best outcome for you.
Dan particularly likes to help headaches, back pain, shoulder, hip and knee problems. With his football background, he has quite an extensive knowledge of injuries! Dan has worked as a sports trainer for St Bede’s Mentone FC, as well as undertaking a tutor role in Functional Anatomy at Victoria University.
His love of sports and all things anatomy guide his treatment as he helps get patients back to their day to day activities.
Dan has a specific interest in treating lower limb and hip pain. When he’s not at Total Balance, Dan stays busy throughout the week by running and cycling to stay fit, attending music at live venues around Melbourne, and spending time with friends and family. He is an avid West Coast Eagles fan and is hoping to get over to Perth soon to attend a game in the new stadium.
