Alex’s passion for sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy developed as a result of his own sporting interests and injuries. He is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of complex musculoskeletal conditions and is an excellent communicator. Swift, accurate diagnosis and holistic treatment is the key to optimising patient rehabilitation. This forms the basis for Alex’s approach to treatment.

Headache, shoulder and sporting injuries, including tendinopathy, are areas that Alex has developed a special interest in. During treatment, he incorporates a variety of techniques according to the patient’s needs, including dry needling. He also has a strong exercise background that he frequently incorporates into treatment in order to expedite patient recovery.

Alex believes in being at the forefront of new research and treatments in physiotherapy. He has completed further training in treatment of headache, shoulder, thorax, foot and ankle, pelvic and sports injuries, with many of Australia’s leading physiotherapists. He is also currently undertaking his Masters of Sports Physiotherapy.

In the past, Alex has worked with people from all walks of life and skills levels. His sports physiotherapy interest has meant that he has worked with a variety of athletes from water polo, rugby union, rowing, volleyball, AFL, and dragon boating to name a few. Alex has been the physiotherapist for the Sydney University Women’s Water Polo National League team for the last 3 years.

When he’s not in the clinic, Alex is probably watching sport of some description, catching up with family and friends, or chasing after his puppy.
