Dr Michael Johnco
Advanced Pain Management Osteopath (Tertiary)
B. Sc. (Clin Sc), M. H. Sc. (Osteopathy), Grad Cert Pain Management
Michael is a new convert to the Queensland way of life, originally growing up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney before moving down to Melbourne to study at Victoria University. He had personally experienced the benefit that a good Osteopath could offer, and resonated with the principle of diagnosing problems, using the best available management, and getting people back doing the things they love.
Early in his career, he realised that there were very few health professionals treating complex pain issues well, and as a result, many people were getting sub-par treatment and suffering needlessly for years. He went back to university in 2019 to study Pain Management through the University of Sydney and was recognised in 2020 as one of Australia’s first Advanced Pain Management Osteopaths through his qualifications. Currently, he is the only Advanced Pain Management Titled Osteopath in Queensland and is one of only two Osteopathic members of the Australian Pain Society (the Australian chapter of the International Association for the Study of Pain – IASP). He believes in a strong structural and evidence-based approach, combining massage, mobilisation, exercise, education and other techniques to achieve the best results for his patients.
Michael’s forte is complex or persistent pain and long-term injuries. He frequently works with a wide range of people with hypermobility spectrum disorders, chronic pain and sport or dance related injuries.
In his free time, Michael enjoys cooking, playing guitar and singing, scuba diving, travelling and exploring Brisbane and the surrounding areas.
Dr Michael Johnco – Osteopath is available at our New Farm clinic from Monday to Friday.
