Tad Okutani

Tad will be your private physio all the time. He will communicate, refer and liaise with your GP, specialists, radiologists and all necessary health care professionals seamlessly.

Tad trained as a physiotherapist at Sydney University and worked at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Darlinghurst and a couple of private practices before opening Metro Physiotherapy in the Sydney City. At the hospital, He saw a wide range of conditions and gained experiences of treating them, from neurological symptoms to terminal cares.

He has further completed his Master of Manual Therapy at University of Western Australia, in the heart of manual therapy, Perth WA.

Tad’s special interest is in the management of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD), which simply means jaw joint disorders, and cervicogenic headaches and migraines.
He learnt his TMD treating techniques from Mark Larimer. He helps Mark as a seminar assistant at his courses. As he has seen many patients with TMD, Tad found there is a strong correlation between jaw problems and headaches/migraines. So his interest and passion expanded to the management of headaches and migraines. He also learnt Watson Headache Approach. When experience met a scientific approach, it became a very powerful tool in Tad’s hands. He now empirically developed a highly effective method for long-lasting results for headaches and migraines management. Tad also presents seminars in the management of TMJD and cervicogenic headaches to fellow physiotherapists in Australia and Japan.

In his private life, he is the father of a son and enjoys spending time with his family. He likes sampling wines, making pizzas from dough, playing and watching soccer and tennis, and challenges to improve his camping skills.
