We don’t see our selves as educators but rather facilitators of ideas, discussion and critical appraisal. We do this because we aren’t satisfied with the status quo of health care and believe we can all do far better for our patients.
Brendan is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist based out of Adelaide, Australia.
Brendan’s passion for healthcare comes from spending many years after completing his masters searching for the best modalities to help people suffering from musculoskeletal pain. This lead to his training in many modalities including McKenzie MDT, Mulligan techniques and (so much) more. With this training he became frustrated with the realisation that some people would improve rapidly and others, who presented in an almost identical fashion, would not - no matter how many courses he would complete. This lead to a dark and deep search to make sense of these varying presentations in the research, before realising he, like many others had been looking at it all wrong. The answer didn’t lie in trying to develop magical hands, but rather, a skill set that most practitioners already have.
He continues to practice, facilitate courses, and is a part of the Body in Mind research group at the University of South Australia.
