Musculo-skeletal healthcare with a whole-body approach.
Jake graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor and Masters degree in Chiropractic, in addition to 5 years assisting and training under an osteopath & chiropractor externally, and has since gone on to use his unique teachings to adopt an extremely comprehensive, whole-body approach to understanding and treating musculoskeletal conditions as a chiropractor in Sydney.His initial interest in hands-on therapies came about after a severe lower back injury left his father facing lifelong disability, but through the work of a local osteopath, went on to cancel his pending surgery and continue an active working and sporting life for years to come. It’s this first hand experience of the huge potential that manual therapy offers for healing that drives Jake’s passion for the work today. Jake has enjoyed training and competing in mixed martial arts for years, and applies his appreciation of athletic performance to his passionate approach to restoring and optimising his patients’ physical function and ensuring they are able to pursue a pain-free lifestyle however they choose.
