Darron has 26 years’ experience treating TMJ disorder, face and neck related conditions. His qualifications include a post graduate certification in manipulative therapy as well as craniosacral therapy.

Darron’s initial exposure to this niche field of practice highlighted to him that although many of these conditions had a very largely musculo-skeletal component, they were not being well managed by the physiotherapy and other manual therapy professions usually responsible for treating musculo-skeletal conditions. Responsibility was however placed on the Dental profession for managing these conditions. Darron realised the need for including a physiotherapy type treatment approach for these conditions, alongside conventional Dental management (which usually incorporates splint therapy and / or medications).  Over the many years of his involvement in this field,  Darron began formulating his own approach – the Goralsky Craniomandibular Method (GCMM), and has attended many postgraduate courses, traveled internationally to spend time with leading TMJ experts and regularly attends local and international conferences on Temporomandibular Disorders and Oro-facial Pain. Darron, alongside 3 other Dental Specialists, is a regular lecturer for the Melbourne Dental School on a full-day course for qualified Dentists on the Multidisciplinary Management Of TMD (Temporomandibular disorders). He has also presented lectures to Dental Special Interest Groups, Physiotherapy Groups and to both Medical Practitioners and Dentists.  Darron is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA), the Australian Branch of The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) and an member of the Australia New Zealand Academy of Orofacial Pain (ANZAOP), delivering a lecture at their 2019 Conference in Adelaide.

As of 2020, Darron no longer consults directly with patients as he has dedicated his focus to ongoing training and mentoring his growing clinical team, all of whom he has personally trained in his approach – The Goralsky Craniomandibular Method. Darron is also committed to continuously ensuring that his approach stays at the forefront of evidence based practice and he and his team are always furthering their knowledge and professional development though courses, workshops and conferences.

Darron is supported by a dedicated clinical and administrative  team to assist you with your treatments or any appointment enquiries.
