Phillip Graziano graduated from Macquarie University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Masters of Chiropractic. In 2005, he completed the International Applied Kinesiology Course to be a certified Applied Kinesiologist. Phillip continued to further his education by completing the International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma in Sports Chiropractic as well as qualifications in both musculoskeletal acupuncture and dry needling in 2010/2011. Phillip currently maintains a radiographer license and has an interest in radiographic imaging/interpretation which he is looking to expand his knowledge through further study in the future.
Phillip has been working at Spinal and Sports Care since 2006 and has recently become a partner in the practice. Over the years, he has been honoured to have worked under many fellow mentors in the chiropractic profession while he was both studying and working as a registered chiropractor. His experience has gained him knowledge and expertise in all types of injury management in all ages and has therefore developed into a diverse range of patients from the general public to elite sporting athletes.
Phillip has a very strong focus on an accurate diagnosis for each individual patient through his physical examinations, radiographic interpretation and chiropractic management. Phillip maintains an evidence based approach to injury assessment/management and he aims to clearly educate each patient in understanding both their injuries and any preventative or corrective measures that may assist in improving the biomechanics of their body. Although each individual is different, Phillip has aimed to incorporate his treatment around each individual patient by utilising his expertise in chiropractic therapy in conjunction with other forms of treatment modalities which he has developed over the years.
Throughout his chiropractic career, Phillip has been able to work closely amongst some of Sydney’s best Orthopaedic and Neurosurgeons, Doctors, Radiographers, Endocrinologist, Massage Therapist and Naturopaths.
