What drew you to physio?
As an avid sportsman throughout my life, the human body was always something that fascinated me. Having experienced my fair share of physio, I have a depth of knowledge that compliments my passion to help my clients become fitter and stronger.
Why did you choose to research lower back pain?
Lower back pain is something I have personally experienced and understand how debilitating it can really be. I didn’t have the best experience and wanted to know more about my body and the pain I was experiencing. By combining my experiences with what I have learnt through research I believe my approach to helping people understand and manage their back pain is holistic.
What is your approach to exercise?
I believe exercise should be the foundation of every good rehab program. Having coached and trained athletes for rugby union, swimming and cycling, I understand how to get the most out of people at any level. I can help you build up to strength goals no matter how big or small they are. I want to make exercise fun and exciting for you!
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Outside of work I am a seasoned cyclist competing locally and state. I have a keen interested in bike fitting and applying my Physiotherapy knowledge to this area.
