Dr Gary Israelsohn – Osteopath
Gary graduated from RMIT University in 2003, completing a double degree in Applied Science and Osteopathic Science. Since graduating Gary has worked at various Osteopathic clinics around Melbourne and most recently settling at Equilibrium Sports and Spinal Clinic in Glen Iris.
Throughout his career, Gary has enjoyed lecturing at both RMIT and Victoria Universities in the Osteopathic departments, worked for various touring sporting teams including; New Zealand All Blacks during the 2003 Rugby World Cup, International Irish AFL team and the South African Southern Kings Super Rugby side. He has also spent time working closely with various local AFL and State league hockey teams.
Gary has developed a keen interest in treating and managing musculoskeletal conditions including; headaches, shoulder injuries, lower back pain, postural problems, muscle sprains and strains as well as writing and developing rehabilitation programs for his patients. Over the years Gary has attended various courses to complement his hands on Osteopathic techniques and furthering his knowledge base, ensuring he stays up to date with the latest clinical research. Gary is a firm believer in his clients taking an active role in their recovery, regularly providing home or gym based strength and conditioning exercises to compliment his hands on treatment. Gary takes pride in watching his clients progress from a dysfunctional state, to a healthy pain free lifestyle well into the future.
Gary is also qualified to use ‘Dry needling’ techniques in conjunction with his Osteopathic treatment enabling him to effectively treat conditions such as; acute neck and back pain, aggravated disc injuries or tennis elbow, which may otherwise become further aggravated by traditional hands on treatment.
When you can’t find Gary in the treatment room you will more than likely spot him and his 3 favourite girls (wife Vicki and his 2 daughter’s Chloe and Milla) at anyone one of their favourite cafe’s around Glen Iris or playing in the park…..and when time and snow permits, on his snowboard at any Victorian Ski Resort.
Gary is available for consults at Equilibriums Sports and Spinal Clinic in Glen Iris Monday, Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday and Saturday.
