Travis Bateman | Osteopath
Read Travis's Blog Posts
Travis is an Osteopath and the founder of CSSM.
With a special interest in movement analysis, Travis' core philosophy is that there is no right or wrong way to how we move. So taking a one size fits all approach to movement is counterproductive. Rather an approach that combines biomechanics, functional anatomy, an understanding of the individual themselves and the environment in which they perform is the key to performance gains, injury management and future injury prevention.
This is particularly true for young and growing bodies. Having competed in sport from a young age, Travis understands the unique demands placed on the bodies of growing athletes and gains satisfaction in helping the stars of the future pursue their dreams of success. Travis' career highlights include his experiences working with junior elite athletes who have gone on to become Olympians and AFL footballers.
Having himself returned to sport over recent years, Travis can be found trail running, mountain biking and swimming during his spare time. Enjoying a new perspective as an athlete from the back of the pack.
