Damien (aka Damo) is a passionate and progressive osteopath at Kinematics Strength + Recovery. Upon completing his osteopathy studies, Damo has completed further training to advance his skillset including ASCA Level 1 Strength + Conditioning, Advanced Dry Needling and Advanced Sports Taping courses.
Outside of the clinic, Damo was the osteopath for the Carlton Football Club AFLW team in their first four seasons. His clinical sporting experience also extends to working with the Essendon Football Club, NBA players, A-League men and women, as well as being the health professional of the Australian Masters of the Amateurs golf tournament. Currently, Damo holds two ambassador roles with Lululemon and BodyFit Gym.
Damo’s approach to treatment focuses on allowing your body to function in unison and at its optimum. Utilising manual therapy techniques such as massage, dry needling, joint articulation and manipulation in conjunction with exercise prescription, Damo will provide you with an individualised management plan. Whether your goal is to achieve pain-free movement, improve posture or enhance sporting performance, Damo will work alongside you to achieve your desired results.
Damo is an avid golfer and loves his footy. Depending on how well Essendon is playing he should be happy to discuss all things AFL, otherwise golf is probably a safer topic. On weekends, Damo loves to go up to Lake Eildon and relax by the water or spend time with his mates over a beer.
Damo is at K2 on Monday, Tuesday + Wednesday.
