We look forward to receiving your call on 03 9908 2844 to book in with Drew!

Here is a little bit about Drew; how he got his heart set on becoming an osteopath and what his treatments are like:

Drew’s interest in Osteopathy sprang from a very young age when he was introduced to the profession through a family friend. Being fortunate to be mentored by a well-known Osteopath in NSW who practices both human and equine Osteopathy, Drew formally gained recognition himself as an Osteopath through the Bachelor and Master’s course at Victoria University in Melbourne.

Taking a structural approach to treatments, including a deep bio-mechanical understanding of the function of the body, Drew utilises a mix of Osteopathic techniques, Dry Needling and rehab with patients. He has a deep respect for alternative medical modalities, and is always seeking the best outcome for the patient, understanding each patient is unique and requires different care.

Drew’s Master’s Research project was on Sleep Quality, and it’s link to chronic conditions including chronic musculo-skeletal pain. Through this he has developed a holistic approach to his Osteopathic care, and understands the combined roles of sleep, nutrition and exercise outside of treatment in the management of our health, and the influence our lifestyles can have.

Competing at a National level in Surf Life Saving events has helped Drew gain a further understanding of the body, and he enjoys sharing this knowledge with patients. He treats a wide range of injuries and ailments, acute and chronic across people young and old. His specialty is musculo-skeletal complaints, and he enjoys the challenges of working through both pre-existing and recent injuries to obtain the best possible outcome for the patient.

Drew ensures his patients are actively aware of their own role in their recovery, and takes the time to manage each patient through their rehabilitation with careful and consistent monitoring of their progress.
