Meet Dr Matt, Chiropractor
As a child Matt was a gymnast and enjoyed a variety of sports and had great freedom of movement. Into adulthood Matt noticed he was getting stiffer and could no longer move the way he could previously. Like everyone else he put it down to a part of getting older. Finally he decided that he should be able to move well at any age, and using chiropractic, exercises, progressive movements/stretches and by continually challenging himself he is regaining his youthful pliability.
Originally from Mildura, Matt spent a number of years in the Australian Defence Force before undertaking study and graduating with distinction as a chiropractor from RMIT. Matt has a keen interest in low back pain, Chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation, balance and dizziness, active families, sports and sustainable living.
As a former soldier, Dr Matt has a unique understanding of many issues that veterans face and would be happy to assist any current or former Defence members and Department of Veteran's Affairs cases.
