Why we're different

A "quick-fix" for your pain or injury might sound good, but over time is proven to be inconvenient, costly and ineffective in comparison to taking preventative measures. Our unique clinical approach, Results4Life, keeps you on track towards optimal lifelong physical health.

Shiv has grown up in the Mitcham area, having attended local schools including Nunawading South Primary School (now Mt Pleasant Primary School) and Vermont Secondary College. Shiv studied Physiotherapy at Melbourne University and has developed a keen interest in Spinal Physiotherapy, Sports Physiotherapy and Chronic Pain Management. Shiv prides himself on keeping up to date with the very latest research and techniques to ensure a consistently high level of patient care. He has completed several additional courses, such as dry needling, gym rehabilitation and Clinical Exercise techniques.

Socially, Shiv is involved locally in soccer, cricket and Kung Fu. An exercise fanatic, he will also be spotted on the running track or in the gym each day. Shiv has embraced his ‘inner nerd’; he is a movie buff with a love of computer games and reading. The best way to understand Shiv’s dedication to Physiotherapy is that he views his work as a lifestyle choice, not a job. He loves meeting new people and helping them achieve their individual goals.

Shiv can speak Hindi.
