Dr Brendan O’Loughlin
B.App.Sci (Clinical Sciences), M.H.SC (Osteopathy)
One of MOSIC’s senior Osteopaths, Brendan has been diligently pursuing his passion for managing active people through injuries since graduating from Victoria University 2012. He has worked closely with endurance and team sport athletes to keep them doing what they love. Brendan utilises strength and conditioning skills gained at the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association as well as biomechanical assessment and gait analysis skills developed in the laboratory as both a researcher and elite athlete participant.
Comfortable treating people of all age brackets, Brendan has gained extensive Osteopathic experience in rural Victoria treating a range of severe acute working and sporting injuries as well as chronic postural dysfunction and medical conditions.
With a passion for sports, Brendan has a long history that includes athletics, hockey, cricket and, now, triathlon, competing in the Hawaii Ironman World Championships 2019. This has helped build an excellent understanding of the injuries common to these sports. His experience treating both elite and recreational athletes from a range of disciplines has led to a comprehensive understanding of the demands that training places on the body.
Brendan is particularly focused on locating the biomechanical and structural causes of long term injuries and correcting them. He believes in educating his clients to understand the cause of their condition, thus helping them to live pain free with lifestyle advice, rehabilitative exercises, and preventative treatment measures.
Brendan is a registered practitioner with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, Australian Osteopathic Association, Sports Medicine Australia, and the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association.
