Prior to qualifying in 2004 Alex worked with his late father the renowned Osteopath and Doctor of Complementary Medicine Nigel Vukovich
Over the last 16 years practicing he has gained an enormous amount of experience treating a wide range of problems ranging from Slipped Discs to misalignments of the Skeletal Frame and Spine.
Spinal misalignment issues can create Cranial Tension, Headaches, Nerve Impingement of arms & legs (Sciatica) tight contracted Muscles which can trigger off RSI injuries (Repetitive Strain Injuries) and Muscular Cramps and Spasms.
Apart from various massage techniques he incorporates the use of MET, ‘Muscle Energy Technique’. This is a technique for stretching tight contracted muscles. It involves the active contraction by the patient against the resistance used by the Therapist which is very helpful in lengthening and stretching postural muscles and reducing pressure on the joints.
Employing the above methods Alex has had a great deal of success in dealing with a wide range of sporting injuries and musculoskeletal discomfort.
