Nick Florance has been a keen sportsman all his life, often playing at an elite level. He suffered a series of debilitating lower back injuries at a young age that proved a mystery to fix for most medical practitioners. Through trial and error he was led to Osteopathy and thus developed a strong commitment to finding the best solutions in reducing a clients pain.Nick is a dedicated Osteopath with over 15 yrs experience in the primary health care field. He has worked closely with a number of experienced health professionals such as Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Psychologists, Chiropractors and other Osteopaths. Nick is currently the Principal Osteopath at Balanced Life Osteopathy in Brookvale.
Nick’s approach to Osteopathy is quite structural believing that the bony skeleton provides a blue print for whole body health. He treats each individual on the basis of their presenting complaint and seeks to engage the body’s own sense of self-regulation and self-healing through a broad range of Osteopathic techniques.
As an Osteopath, Nick has treated a wide range of conditions from back pain, foot and knee problems, pelvic pain, whiplash and headache, disc injury and sciatica, pain resulting from poor work ergonomics such as carpal tunnel and jaw pain. He treats sports injuries, the elderly, rheumatism suffers and pregnancy.
A consultation with Nick will begin with a thorough case history and physical assessment. Treatment may incorporate a range of techniques from soft tissue release, articulation, joint mobilisation, manipulation and stretching. Nick offers education on exercise, work ergonomics, diet, posture patterns and lifestyle choices.
