Dr. Patrick Lee (Senior Osteopath)

Patrick is a fully qualified and registered osteopath and member of Osteopathy Australia. Since graduating Patrick has completed many post graduate courses including Dry Needling, Pregnancy, and Paediatrics. He is also Level 1 SFMA certified. 

Patrick’s journey to becoming an osteopath started with a fascination with the mechanics of how things work, studying mechanical engineering and industrial design. In his final year he decided it wasn’t the career for him and took a year off to travel through Europe. Upon returning home, he realised his true interest in understanding the mechanics of the human body and working with people, when he undertook a certificate IV in Remedial Massage at the Australian College of Natural Medicine. This lead him to further his studies at RMIT University, graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Complimentary Medicine) and a Master of Osteopathy. Also during this time he completed a Certificate III and IV in Fitness, enabling him to work both as a massage therapist and personal training whilst studying. 

Throughout Patrick’s life, he has been involved in both team and individual sports in Track and field, cycling (road and mountain), lacrosse, Snowboarding, rock climbing all over Australia and internationally, and now combat sports (Boxing and Muay Thai). Patrick is also no stranger to injuries himself, suffering from a variety of injuries in the name of pushing himself to be his best. Although one particular accident taught him the most. 

In 2013 following his passion for rock climbing he had a severe accident resulting in 2 broken legs and multiple fractures in his back. Taking charge of his own rehab and supporting his wife who also fell, with the help of his collegues at Wantirna Osteopathy Patrick was back climbing and working much sooner than anticipated. Taking what he has learned from his own experiences Patrick understand the urgency for individuals to return to their chosen sport or activity and gains extreme satisfaction in helping people achieve their own goals.

Patrick is happy to treat people from all walks of life from young to the young at heart, from a stubbed toe to a resconstructed hip, however his particular interests are:

– Post surgical and chronic injury rehabilitation.
– Chronic tendon Injuries.
– Lower limb injuries.
– Injuries related to poor posture and workplace ergonomics.
