Nathan Switkowski graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy) and a Bachelor of Health Science.
Nathan grew up in Melbourne’s North East suburbs playing high-level basketball and football. He discovered Osteopathy as an adolescent after experiencing lower back pain for many months, unable to live life the way he wanted to. He saw an Osteopath for treatment, which enabled him to return to all his sporting activities pain-free! This experience inspired him to study Osteopathy, so that he too could help others in pain and allow them to reach their full potential.
Nathan is a dedicated practitioner who prides himself on clear and concise treatment plans. He is passionate about working with his patients to help them reach their goals, and improve their overall health and wellbeing. He enjoys helping his patients to understand their musculoskeletal conditions, whilst also educating them on ways to help themselves along their journey to recovery. He prescribes rehabilitation strengthening and stretching exercises to his patients in combination with manual therapy techniques to achieve effective results.
Nathan’s interest in the sporting field led him to work at the Western Bulldogs Football Club as a sports trainer for 3 years. This invaluable experience working alongside elite athletes sparked a special interest in treating acute musculoskeletal injuries. While at the club, he was fortunate to be involved in the 2016 AFL and VFL premierships.
Nathan enjoys continuing his professional training and development. Since graduating, he has completed further training in dry needling and mat pilates.
In his spare time, Nathan enjoys staying active at the local gym and playing competitive basketball. He also enjoys socialising with mates, trying out new cafes for a good cup of coffee and cheering on his beloved Doggies on the weekend.
