Ilias has always had a passion for sport and sports injuries. He completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage at RMIT and an Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy at Kangan Bagman Institute, during which he completed internships at Richmond Football Club, Melbourne Storm and Melbourne Victory.

Once qualified, Ilias worked at a number of different osteopathy and physiotherapy clinics. He also spent four years working at Hawthorn Football Club, and it was there where Ilias decided he was going to open his own business. Soon after, Muscle & Bone Clinic was born.

Ilias has formulated his own treatment style that is suited for treatment of all types of injuries, from workplace to sport related, including osteitis pubis, lower back pain, knee injuries and rotator cuff injuries. Continued professional development in the form of observing professional football and basketball athletes in the United States has helped Ilias hone his understanding of human movement, sports tendinopathy and keeping the body in optimal performance condition. He can help anyone, from professional athletes to those who like to treat themselves as professional athletes.

Ilias loves playing soccer, watching the NBA and would one day love to see his beloved St Kilda Saints win an AFL premiership.
