Anthony is a Pain & Movement Specialist who is fascinated by the ability of the human body to heal itself. Coming from a background of pain and avoiding kneeling for 14 years, he is more than aware of how lack of communication can affect a person's day to day life. With very short appointment times the current model in health care leaves no time for discussion or clarifying information. This poor level of communication leaves people jumping from pillar to post not knowing what to do. His goal is to change how information is communicated and shared in the Health Industry so that we promote self care empowering others to reduce unnecessary medication and avoidance of movement.
