Education & Teaching

Brendan started teaching in 2013 at Deakin University in their Bachelor of Exercise Science Degree. He taught anatomy and physiology before starting sessional teaching at Victoria University on the side of his clinical practice. In 2016, Brendan completed his Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and wrote his first evidence based, face to face course for AEP's and Physiotherapists. This unique course used real clients with real time interventions as a teaching method and was specific to lumbar spine and SIJ assessment and therapy.

Brendan believes that as health professionals we have a responsibility to our patients and our respective professions to stay up to date with current research but also to empower clients. It's imperative that we learn to decrease the high iatrogenic affect that is so commonly driven into our patients.

10/10 - Excellent lower back and SIJ course.

I had seen multiple specialists about my back pain and Brendan has been the only one who pinpointed the root cause of the pain instead of treating the symptoms. He provided exercises that alleviated my pain in a few weeks when I had previously been in pain for months.
