Michael has presented at courses in Manual Therapy in the UK, Ireland and Australia. He has taken a keen interest in the development of the physiotherapy services profession, in particular, the promotion of a high standard of care. He was a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association's Professional Standards Committee for many years and was its chairman in his final two years of service. He has recently been a member of Physiotherapy Board of Victoria, part of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency.

He has a particular interest in the treatment of neck and low back pain and has developed protocols of treatment for the management of intransigent cases. Michael has treated dancers and performers with their particularly unique conditions and continues to use this experience in conditions affecting those who prefer less extreme pursuits! These range from sporting injuries to postural conditions in the office warrior and other amateur athletes.
Michael is a keen cyclist and traveller to the less-well-travelled areas of Australia with his family.
