Andrew is originally from country New South Wales and has happily settled in to city life over the past few years. If he’s not relaxing or exercising on Bondi Beach, he’s out on the golf course or keeping up with the latest sports news.

As a dedicated musculoskeletal physiotherapist, Andrew places a strong emphasis on finding the driver of a patient’s impairment, to ensure a complete recovery and prevent recurrence.

His interest in physiotherapy began in 2004 when Andrew embarked on a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Business (with a Sport Management major). He chose to study at Griffith University on the Gold Coast to combine his love of the beach and an active outdoor lifestyle, with his goal to become a physiotherapist.

Upon completing his undergraduate degrees, Andrew made the move to Sydney. He excelled at Sydney University, where he was awarded his Masters of Physiotherapy (Distinction).

Before joining the team at Sydney Physiotherapy Solutions, Andrew has had extensive experience assessing, diagnosing and treating sports and work related injuries at a private practice in the eastern suburbs, under the guidance of an experienced senior physiotherapist. He has also provided sports coverage for Parramatta FC Premier league soccer teams and local Sydney club rugby.

Andrew’s love for golf has resulted in achieving certification with the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). Andrew is qualified to conduct a golf specific screen, which enables him to identify physical limitations which may be affecting a player’s game. These physical limitations result in certain swing characteristics that may cause injury or reduce someone’s power or performance. Andrew strongly believes that TPI will not only minimalise injury and keep you playing for longer, but also increase your power and performance… Much more effective than buying a new driver!

His other passion, knees, developed after two ACL injuries playing AFL and soccer. Having gone through two ACL reconstructions and several other knee surgeries, Andrew is in a unique position to understand the physiological and psychological barriers involved in returning to sport after such lengthy lay-offs.

Andrew therefore prides himself in delivering an optimum treatment pathway that prioritises a timely, safe and effective return for patients to perform their chosen activities, so they’re not missing out on those things they love to do.
