Senior Physiotherapist

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.
