He has been working in private practice since 2001, initially moving to Seddon when he joined a long standing, multi-disciplinary clinic in Geelong working alongside medical practitioners in Werribee.

The clinic now boasts several osteopaths and a range of allied health specialists working in the same, central Seddon location on Victoria Street.
Using an holistic Osteopathic model that follows the ‘find it, fix it and leave it alone’ mantra, Richard has been treating a wide range of patients from children to elderly with variety of Osteopathic techniques tailored to best suit the individual patient. He also employs Dry Needling techniques, which he has found useful for treating soft tissue injuries that don’t always respond to other treatments, as well as chronically tight muscles, that may refer pain into other parts of the body.
Richard has always had a keen interest in sporting injuries and rehabilitation having competed and then worked for a variety of amateur and professional sports clubs over the years. He has also sustained one or two injuries of his own along the way! Consequently, he has a passion for seeing sports-people of all pursuits return to their sport as soon as possible.
Having children of his own, he has a keen interest in pre and post natal care and loves assisting women through their pregnancies. He can see the difference it makes to having personalised treatment and care during and after pregnancy.
