For the past 5 years Shane has been the sports therapist for an elite under-age AFL football team and WA State Minor Gaelic Football sole therapist for last two Australasian Carnivals. Association with sporting teams always involves providing hands on treatment at training sessions and games.
It has been my mission to unravel the most effective acupuncture treatments for conditions commonly being presented to Podiatrists and pass this on to my profession. These were never self evident from the training I received. They have the capacity to make a profound difference to clinical outcomes.
