Richmond Back Pain Solutions Practitioners

Daniel Rodgers back pain solutions practitiioner

Daniel Rodgers

Chronic pain is Daniel's specialities, treating all types of pain and dysfunction throughout the body including lower back pain and neck pain.

After suffering with chronic back pain earlier in his life, Daniel says ‘Pain and dysfunction are typically present when there are imbalances. If we can restore your biomechanical imbalances your pain can drastically alleviate. By strengthening your body and addressing the weaknesses we take away the causes of your pain'.

Restoring symmetry to the human body will ensure correct functioning is carried out and the pain is eradicated. Daniel carries out this process through Myofascial Neurological Manipulation (MNM) working with the Fascia and the NeuroMuscular System.

In more chronic cases, symmetry can be restored through a combination of hands-on treatment (MNM) and strengthening exercises that address the cause of the pain, not just the symptoms. This process includes evaluating your body to find out where weakened areas are that are causing your pain through Neuromuscular Patterning (NMP)

Daniel has worked with a vast range of specialists from around Australia and the World to understand the intricacies of the human body. During this time, Daniel has refined highly effective and predictable treatment methodologies to help his patients. 

Daniel has a sporting background in Australian Rules Football, Rugby and Basketball. Outside of the clinic Daniel has worked with, AFL teams, A-League soccer teams, Australian Open tennis athletes as well as international Olympic athletes. 

Rick Saunders back pain solutions practitiioner

Rick Saunders

In his early twenties, Rick suffered a severe lower back injury playing a high level of Australian Rules Football. Multiple discs were damaged and herniated, strong anti inflammatory drugs and rest were prescribed. After 6 months of rest and consistent physiotherapy the condition gradually got worse. Playing at a high level of sport, meant exposure to the best possible sports doctors and Physiotherapists, however after seeing countless so called specialists - no one could provide a solution to the debilitating back pain that was ruining Rick’s career and life.
Desperate for a solution Rick sought alternative practitioners such as Chiropractors, Osteopaths, deep tissue massage - every one knew of a guru who could fix any back.
12 months and over ten of thousand dollars later, trying 47 different practitioners - the only results were short term relief from the pain, only for it to resume within a short few days.  

Studying Health Science at the time Rick made it his mission to find out why he still had severe back pain, at this stage 18 months after the original injury and do everything possible to fix his back and resume his football career. 
Oddly enough at the time, the only relief other than treatment was whilst doing weight training at the gym. The relief lasted for approximately 20-30 minutes after the workout.
Rick decided to carry out his research papers on ‘How to fix lower back pain with strength and resistance training’.

12 months later, despite thousands of hours of study, research and trial and error - nothing more than temporarily relief was experienced - 20-30 minutes, no more. During this time, Rick went and saw 2 AFL club doctors and 3 leading back surgeons.  Of the 5 doctors, 4 were abrupt and advised there was nothing that could be done, ‘give up playing sport and learn to deal with the pain’. 1 of the Sports doctors, at least offered a diagnosis ‘spondylolisthesis’ and advised that playing sport was only possible under large dosages of anti inflammatory drugs - weighing up the long term effect had to be considered.

Upon further research and discussion with mentors, with nothing to lose, Rick decided to carry out a set of back strengthening exercises at an intensity he had previously been to scared to do for fear of doing further damage. It seemed to work, the relief lasted beyond the 20 minutes, for 2-3 days until the pain returned. The better Rick’s technique became the longer the relief lasted and the stronger he felt. After 3 years of debilitating lower back pain, seeing countless so called specialists with no results he was back playing sport at state level within just 4 months of finding this unique approach to solving back pain.
Since then, Rick completed his Health Studies with post graduate research in neuromuscular facilitation and human behaviour. He has been practicing in private clinic since 2002 specialising in Chronic back and Shoulder pain. Rick’s techniques and approach to chronic back pain has evolved over a 13 year period, with the current success rate at greater than 97%. Of the thousands of Chronic back pain sufferers Rick has helped, almost all of them have told of a similar journey and frustration trying to find a permanent solution to their pain.
