Patrick attained his Bachelor of Physiotherapy locally at the University of South Australia and has worked in a musculoskeletal private practice setting since graduating.  Patrick has a strong base in manual therapy and a particular interest in:

  • rehabilitating overuse injuries, 
  • sporting injuries, both acute and chronic, 
  • CrossFit and  Weightlifting related injuries, including technique assessment, 
  • low back pain, 
  • neck pain and headaches.

Patrick is also passionate about basketball and cycling and performs BikeFits regularly, a speciality of Adelaide Advanced Physiotherapy, fitting the bike to the cyclist.

Patrick's background and experience ensure a holistic approach to client management, looking not just at the presenting complaints but the underlying causes.
