Makeen Shaw is a WA local who has worked in private practice since graduating from Curtin University. Makeen enjoys treating all musculoskeletal problems in a way that not only aims to manage short-term pain, but also to improve long-term function and injury risk.
As a lover of all things sport – particularly AFL, tennis and cricket – Makeen’s passion is in treating sporting injuries to allow people to return to playing the sport they love. So he’s very excited that Brighter Healthcare is a proud sponsor of the High Wycombe Junior Football Club for the upcoming season.
Makeen makes fast relief of pain a priority and utilises manual therapy, exercise prescription and dry needling within his treatment plans, as well as helping the client to increase their knowledge of their condition to maximise self-management. He loves to help people maintain a healthy, active lifestyle and is particularly passionate about the benefits of exercise therapy to achieve this.
Outside of work, watching and playing sports, Makeen loves to travel and has also recently taken up gardening.
