Dr Max Krapivsky – Osteopath

After completing year 12, Max didn’t have a clear idea of what he wanted to pursue as a career. All he knew was that he wanted to combine his interest in science with his love of sports, and too his desire to help people. He stumbled upon the world of osteopathy when following the advice of a teacher, and instantly grew a passion for the profession.

5Since starting his education at Victoria University, Max has worked in several sporting fields including AFL, soccer & netball. The most notable teams include Selangor FA of the Malaysian Super League & Melbourne’s own South Melbourne Football Club (Hellas), with which he continues to work with. He is also currently a member of the Brighton Old Boys Soccer Club of the Bayside Premier League. Whilst finishing his studies Max gained qualification to become a registered practitioner in dry needling and cupping. During his final year he was also involved in a research group focusing on the effects of compression garments of sports performance.

Max completed his Masters in Osteopathy at Victoria University. His aim is to provide an individually tailored treatment plan with a mixture of structural techniques coupled with more gentle techniques in order to achieve the best possible results. Rehabilitation and active participation from patients will be encouraged throughout the treatments so as to prolong the positive effect of treatment and reduce the risk of complaint reoccurrence. Max’s main goal is to try and create a balance between the therapeutic benefits of osteopathic treatment and the body’s ability to heal itself.

In his spare time Max can be found in the park having a kick of a round or oval ball, or in the heart of Melbourne searching for new and interesting venues to eat and drink. He has also acquired a shoe collection that spans from performance to casual which has led to many morning dilemmas.
