Flavio specialises in manual therapy and Bertazzo Method of movement re-education and has a particular passion for the GDS Method which, unlike conventional physiotherapy methods, takes a more holistic view of the patient and their postural problems.
Flavio is the only physiotherapist in Australia licensed to practice the GDS Method. The GDS method takes a preventative and therapeutic approach, treating entire muscular chains rather than just isolated problem areas. In using this method, Flavio establishes a more personalised treatment plan for each patient based on their typology.
