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 Ph.D in Pain Medicine. I work as an osteopath and research fellow in the field of chronic pain. This allows me to combine a broad range of osteopathic techniques and current evidence from ours and others work to give a more integrated approach to health care.
My passion lies in person-centered treatment that focuses on pain, exercise 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.
Away from work, I regularly chase after my 3 children (usually vice-versa) and relax with cycling and climbing in and around Sydney.
