He also worked as a qualified personal trainer and hydrotherapy instructor where he enhanced his exercise prescription talents and fitness programs tailored for all kinds of people.

Osteopaths combine a highly developed sense of palpatory awareness with a high level of training in functional anatomy and biomechanics as part of examination and diagnosis. While its important to treat areas of pain, osteopaths look for areas of dysfunction and how they link in biomechanically with the rest of the body. With these skills, the Osteopath identifies and seeks to normalise strain patterns in the joints and connective tissues. Osteopaths are primary health care practitioners with a five-year full-time degree
