Dr Nathan Katsanevakis graduated from RMIT with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Complementary Medicine) and a Masters of Osteopathy. He is a fully qualified experienced osteopath who prior to his profession completed a Bachelor of Science at The University of Melbourne with a study major in anatomy. This led Nathan to work as a surgical technician, working side-by-side with some of Melbourne’s most reputable orthopaedic surgeons.
With a wealth of experience in treating and managing musculoskeletal complaints, Nathan dedicated his time as a volunteer osteopath for ‘Medics to Africa’ in Kenya at The Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, and at the Tom Mboya School for Cerebral Palsy.
Nathan’s interests primarily revolve around sport, having playing football, tennis, competed in athletics, and skied from an early age. Through these interests and his work in surgical theatre, Nathan has developed a keen interest in sports injury rehabilitation, post-surgical care and postural correction.
He uses a wide range of techniques tailoring to patient’s individual needs drawing on experience and the latest evidence or research. Nathan will often give patients specific rehabilitation exercises, stretches or advice to help facilitate healing and prevent re-injury. Where suitable, Nathan will incorporate the therapeutic use of Dry Needling and Shockwave Therapy as part of your Osteopathic treatment.
