He graduated from Macquarie University (Sydney) in 2004 with a Masters of Chiropractic and has worked in Glasgow, Scotland and Sydney Australia before moving to Melbourne in 2008 to work with Neil Davies of Kiro Kids.

Pat uses a very specific and unique chiropractic technique called the Neuro Impulse Protocol or N.I.P. which is a gentle and specific technique that does not involve any Cracking or cavitation of joints that traditional Chiropractors have used.

Pat is very skilled at N.I.P and is an integral part of the N.I.P international teaching team. He has taught N.I.P to chiropractors from around the world at each of the International symposiums being Hong Kong (2010), Sardinia (2013), Tenerife (2016),and Langkawi (2018).

 “In my 17 years experience, I find that the more targeted and specific you can be with your corrections to the joints and muscles of the body the better the outcome. When you layer in targeted exercises that are adhered to this change can be further accelerated”.

Pat also likes patients to know that …”The human body is plastic in that like plasticine it is mouldable from the day we are born until the day that we die, knowing this alone is powerful in helping patients drive the change they want to see in their function and health”.
