“You’ve changed my life” 

I remember the first time I said this to a physiotherapist when I could walk again after ankle surgery. I remember the first time I heard a patient say it to me after they had been out gardening for the first time since their back surgery, they felt alive again. I love what I do and helping people! I am so passionate about helping people achieve their personal goals, whether it’s to get out playing with the kids / grandkids or running a personal best in a marathon or getting back into action to play a match. Pain and injury, big or small, can affect all aspects of our lives. Not only is physiotherapy and exercise therapy essential to injury recovery, its essential to keeping us healthy. Exercise is Medicine.
