Dr. Phil Austin B.Sc (Hons), M.Sc, Ph.D
Since graduating as an osteopath in 1997 I have gone on to complete a Masters and a Doctorate in Pain Medicine. I work as an osteopath and research fellow in the field of chronic pain and palliative care. This allows me to combine a broad range of osteopathic techniques and current evidence from ours and others work to give a more integrated and holistic approach to health care.
As such, my passion lies in personalised treatment that focuses on pain relief, exercise prescription and psychosocial education. I am especially interested in the relationship between mood and sleep on the severity and persistence of musculoskeletal and visceral pain.
I also work as a clinical tutor and module leader for the Masters program in Clinical Management of Pain at the University of Sydney and am the author of the book; Chronic Pain: A Resource fo Effective Manual Therapy
