Located in Thornbury,
The #1 goal here at MSTT is to get you back doing what you love to do...from surfing to gardening, from hiking to wrestling with the kids, from working at your desk pain-free to chillin' in front of the TV...
We understand that life can throw a few curveballs with your health and injuries, and can become a constant distraction and annoyance...the last thing you want to experience is aches and pains late at night when you are slaving your way in front of the work computer...
We are not here to tell you what kind of syndrome your body has or label you with some fancy word ending in itis!
In most instances, a combination of soft tissue therapy, rehabilitation exercises, and movement, together with a home-care exercise program will usually lead to a resolution of the problem...
Our goal is to identify and treat the cause, as 9 times out of 10, where the pain is, is never the actual problem.
We believe that movement is your number one form of medicine, so it is very rare that you will be told to go away and rest an injury!
We want to send you away from the clinic, stronger, pain-free, and more educated than when you first arrived.
Mick has always maintained a long term view of my health anything he’s work with me on. He is the only practitioner I have met who has the therapeutic musculoskeletal knowledge and skills to treat the soft tissue AND and the deep capacity to developmentally and progressively coach the rebuilding of the fundamental motor skills I need to become independent in the world again.
I've always had calf issues since being diagnosed with compartment syndrome over 15 years ago.
In the 6 years that I have been treated by Mick, he has kept me on the pitch refereeing premier grade rugby union by actively preventing further calf issues. He has also improved my general mobility and running technique.
As an ex-international level athlete he understands how injury prevention is critical to longevity and wellbeing.
I have now seen Mick for the 6 sessions he suggested and I have gone from, at least, 1 migraine a week (of 24-36 hour duration) to 1 migraine in the last 6 weeks (of 12 hour duration). I can scarcely believe it as I have lived with this problem for 10 years.
I am able to live my life without trying to anticipate when the weekly migraine would hit next and how I could manage to work around it. I feel like I have my ‘pre-migraine’ life back.
I am very grateful that I finally found someone in Mick who listened intently to my situation and symptoms. His knowledge is exemplary and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
