After graduating as a fully qualified Chiropractor in 2020, Brad began his career in Mackay offering a range of techniques in treating musculoskeletal presentations including Diversified manual chiropractic adjusting techniques, Percussion Therapy (deep muscle massage machines), Dry Needling Therapy (DNT), Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), Muscle Energy Technique (MET), soft tissue massage techniques, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisations (IASTM), Activator, functional movement-based therapies and rehabilitation.
A former diesel mechanic, police officer and automotive TAFE lecturer, Brad's interest in the health industry was sparked when he completed a personal training course in 2002. Throughout this time, Brad worked in the Kimberley region, where he witnessed the gap in Indigenous health and a lack of health services in remote Indigenous communities. These experiences fuelled his desire to offer a mobile health service to these remote towns and communities as part of his scope of practice.
As the recipient of the 2019 Australian Rotary Indigenous Health Scholarship, Brad hopes to involve younger generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the health industry.
