A Physiotherapist with more than 20 years’ experience, Andrew has a strong interest in athletic screening, assessing the body to see where the weak links lie, and developing exercise and rehabilitation programs to reduce the likelihood of injuries in the future.
He has studied extensively, completing his Graduate Certificate in Sports Physiotherapy in 2010 and his Masters in Sports Physiotherapy in 2013, as well as Level 2 training with the Titleist Performance Institute.
In 2009 Andrew was among the first Physiotherapists in Australia to begin using Redcord and the Neurac approach to injury rehabilitation. He has spent time in Norway completing Instructor Training in Redcord and is Australia’s first master trainer, qualified to assess and treat patients, and conduct courses to educate other Physiotherapists, Pilates Instructors and Personal Trainers in this scientific, evidence-based approach.
Andrew began his career at a prominent sports medicine practice in Geelong, working alongside leading Physicians and Physiotherapists and assisting athletes from the AFL, NBL, netball and athletics.While travelling overseas he supported diverse sports such as rugby, hockey, basketball and gaelic football. Since 2003 Andrew has focused on Clinical Pilates and exercise rehabilitation because this is where the evidence is strongest and where the most sustainable physical gains are made.
Outside of Physiotherapy Andrew enjoys playing golf and basketball.
