Jesse was exposed to the benefits of Osteopathy through his own injuries as a young athlete, which ultimately led him to pursue a career in Osteopathy with a focus on sport rehabilitation and exercise prescription/modification.
A graduate of RMIT University with a double bachelor’s degree in Health Science and Applied Science (Osteopathy), Jesse uses a structural approach to treatment and looks at the impact that exercise, supplementation, diet, posture, the workplace, and other lifestyle factors can have on his patient’s recovery and pain management.
Jesse has undertaken extensive training in dry needling and cupping, and often will use this as an adjunct to his treatments if required to help patients suffering headaches, migraines, muscle strains, joint sprains, and general muscle aches.
