We are not working together to just get our ‘rehab’ done because that is the right thing to do.
We want to know how your pain or limitation impacts the things that are meaningful to you.
Then we can set about helping you remove these obstacles between where you are right now and where you want to be.
Having a destination that is meaningful to you is critical to your progress, as without it motivation eventually dries up!
You are very involved in the Fix process.
This may be different to your current perception of what a Fix* is – where a doctor or therapist “fixes you”.
We give you the Skills, Tools and Understanding you’ll need to get the progress you want.
We empower you, so when you start seeing Progress, and realise it is you achieving it, your momentum and motivation will build!
Movement is the magic in this process!
We find the areas of your body that let you down by either not moving or being weak and unstable.
We build custom programs targeted at your problem areas.
Once we have polished these areas up, we start building the movement patterns that are relevant to the meaningful destination you have shared with us.
One common misconception in ProMotion is that the program is “anti hands-on treatment”.
If you are too sore or temporarily out of alignment on any given day, sessions within the program can be Osteopathic treatment. In each session we simply do what is most likely to move you forward on that day.
The difference is that Manual Treatment is not THE Plan, but it is an important piece of the puzzle to help you more permanently overcome your pain and limitation.

Grant graduated from Victoria University as an Osteopath in 2000.
Since then Grant has had a variety of experience in private practice in Melbourne, Brisbane, London and now Geelong.
Grant has a special interest in Movement and the role it plays in resolving episodes of pain and improving the quality of what people are able to do.
His role at Procare Geelong is therefore predominantly in the purpose built Movement Pod.
Grant builds flexibility, stability and strength in people who have failed with traditional treatment styles and / or are motivated by a particular sporting or activity goal.

Outside of Procare and family, Grant loves his sport and did have a fledging media career. He was recently sacked as Simonds Stadium field host for Geelong AFL games, due to too many of his jokes falling flat.
