Locky graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Applied Science in complementary medicine and a Masters of Osteopathy. He has worked around Melbourne in a number of well-known clinics for many years and took a year-long sabbatical to work as an osteopath in sunny Cairns in far north Queensland.
Locky’s vast experiences include years of clinical practice, teaching and tutoring at RMIT University in the Osteopathic department and as a clinical educator and clinician at RMIT University student clinic for the past 12 years, and stints at Victoria University.
He has postgraduate qualifications in Advanced Dry Needling, Myofascial Cupping, Functional MAT Assessment, Injury Prevention/management, Paediatric Osteopathy, Crossfit Coaching as well as the world leading post-Graduate Diploma in Animal Biomechanical Medicine as well as carrying diplomas in canine and equine osteopathy.
Locky spends most of his time working with human clients yet enjoys spending time treating animals when he has the opportunity. He consults with leading horse trainers and veterinary hospitals, and works on Horses, Dogs and/or anything in between.
Locky approaches his treatments with a structural and exercise rehabilitation approach. He takes a holistic approach, looking not only at the cause of injury or pain, but also at all of the contributing factors that may be influencing imbalances within the body systems.
He has always been a very keen sportsman and uses his knowledge of the body and mechanics in his treatment and management approaches having had experience in numerous sports himself ranging from Motocross, downhill mountain biking, boxing/kickboxing, running, swimming, cycling, AFL, basketball, weightlifting and Crossfit.
He treats everyone from the weekend warrior to the elite and international athletes in his practice. However, isn’t limited to sports injuries as he enjoys treating a range of complaints from pregnancy-related issues, newborns, elderly and everyone in between.
Outside of work, Locky enjoys motorbike riding, camping and four-wheel driving. Locky loves adventure and jumped at the opportunity to head up to the Northern most point of Australia via the Old Telegraph track (the most iconic 4WD track in Australia) as well as around Fraser Island on his way back down to Melbourne.
Locky and his wife were also crazy enough to travel to Nepal in 2017 and trek to Everest Base Camp, Gokyo Ri and Chola pass for their honeymoon, and have continued with their love of hiking and trekking since getting back.
He and his wife Lauren are proud parents of their Fur Baby Teeka who you may see around the clinic and of course the more recent addition to their family, their son Harvey born in 2018, who definitely keeps both of them on their toes. The 4 of them love exploring the wild, riding their bikes (although Harvey is a little too confident, and takes after his father) and spending time at the beach.
