Dr Michael Mannix
Osteopath | Senior Clinician
B.Sci (Clin Sci), MHS (Osteopathy) - Member Osteopathy Australia
Michael studied Osteopathy at Victoria University where he obtained his qualifications. Michael has been involved in many sports including football, basketball and swimming which are where he was first exposed to osteopathy and his passion has grown from since. As a current local footballer he is still exposed to many injuries involving his team mates (and hopefully not his own), including both acute and chronic problems, as well as the rehabilitation of these grievances.
Aside from sporting mishaps Michael enjoys treating chronic, long standing problems where he can provide relief to those who have struggled for extended periods of time. Additionally he has a keen interest in neck pain and associated headaches. Above all Michael feels that communication between practitioner and patient is imperative and goes a long way to helping ease the patients’ pain and increase their understanding.
With 3 young children of his own Michael is quite busy and understands the need for a balanced lifestyle. He uses this knowledge to work with patients to provide a treatment plan that suits them best.
