Jeff originally consulted as an Osteopath from the clinic until he departed in August 2016 up north to Darwin, NT. He has now relocated to begin practicing in sunny Deniliquin, NSW and has returned to join us in the clinic on Wednesdays.
Jeff has a special interest in foot, leg and pelvic biomechanics including gait assessment. He is also trained to carry out on site ergonomics assessments and write medico-legal reports, especially concerning whiplash injuries. He, like other Osteopaths, is trained to treat the vast majority of pain causing conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, using Osteopathic manual therapy and exercise.
Jeff is also trained in ‘Dry Needling’ technique, which involves inserting a fine, sterile acupuncture needle into muscle ‘trigger points’. This procedure is especially useful with chronic pain sufferers, and may be used in conjunction with other Osteopathic techniques.
