Wes completed his BHSc in Physiotherapy from Auckland University of Technology in 2010. During his time in New Zealand he broadened his experience by working with elite athletes in both soccer and rugby, traveling with the Niue Rugby 7s team to compete in international tournaments. Wes then decided to relocate to Sydney to pursue his career in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. He has spent the last 5 years working as a Senior Physiotherapist in a private practice in the Inner West of Sydney, as well as with local soccer, rugby and AFL teams.
During this time, Wes has completed further training in Dry Needling, tendinopathy and lower limb biomechanics, and attained his APA Sports Level 2 and DMA Pilates Level 1 certifications. With a special interest in biomechanics and tendinopathy, Wes will be completing his Masters of Science (Research) in the area of tendinopathy through Bond University. In addition to his passion for tendinopathy, Wes has developed a further interest in treating the shoulder, cervical and thoracic spine.
He enjoys incorporating both traditional strength and functional training with mobility and self-management strategies to help patients not only get back to their pre-injury levels, but also improve their overall performance and prevent further issues. Outside of physiotherapy Wes is an active sportsman himself, playing soccer his whole life, training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and incorporating a mixture of CrossFit and mobility training to continue to progress his own health and fitness goals.
