Dr. Phil Austin BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD
Since graduating as an osteopath in 1997 I have gone on to complete a Masters and a Ph.D in pain medicine and now work as an osteopath and a pain researcher. 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 and exercise education. I am especially interested in the relationship between mood and sleep on the severity and persistence of musculoskeletal pain.
I also work as a clinical tutor for the Masters program in Clinical Management of Pain at the University of Sydney and as a pain and palliative care researcher at Greenwich Hospital in Sydney.
Away from work, I regularly chase after my 3 children (or vice-versa) and relax with cycling and climbing in and around Sydney.
