Vincent’s passion for chiropractic stems from his love of all sports, everything from tennis to rugby to rock climbing. Vincent has played it all and is familiar with the injuries that can occur. Throughout his chiropractic career, he has been exposed to a variety of these sporting injuries and conditions and he is determined in helping patients optimise their recovery and prevent future recurrences.
Vincent has an interest in managing back and neck pain, sporting injuries, shoulder conditions and addressing postural issues by restoring muscular balance. He uses a multi-modal approach consisting of manual adjusting techniques, drop piece, activator and muscle release, along with functional rehabilitation exercises.
Vincent believes chiropractic care should not only be limited to pain relief but also address the root cause. He achieves this by assessing and treating patients as a whole and tailors each treatment to the patient's specific goals and needs. Vincent completed his Master of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Chiropractic Science at Macquarie University and is available for appointments most days of the week.
