Physiotherapy is evidence-based therapy targeted to diagnose your injury or illness, treat your symptoms, and manage your rehabilitation by using natural methods such as massage, exercise, stretches, adapted equipment, education and motivation.
Many people associate Physiotherapy with sporting injuries, however the resourceful tool box of our Physiotherapists are used to treat conditions that affect muscles, joints, nerves, respiratory system, heart function and mobility complications that reduce your ability to move the way you want and enjoy your daily life
I graduated in 2005 with a double degree in Physiotherapy and Exercises Science from Griffith University on the Gold Coast. With a passion for health care and sports injury, I spent the next few years working in private practice working with a large variety of patient types and enjoyed providing physiotherapy services for 1st grade rugby union and AFL teams. With a passion for travel and exploring, I moved to the UK where I worked in musculoskeletal outpatient departments in a number of major hospitals in London.
Three years later and many countries visited I returned to Australia and used my skills and knowledge as the head physiotherapist for a large allied health company on the Gold Coast where I mentored both junior staff and helped train university students during their clinical placements. Over the last two years I have been practicing as ‘Hamish The Physio’ hamishthephysio.com.au with the aim to empower and educate my clients to improve their health outcomes with best practice using evidence-based management.
After a number of nasty rugby injuries, I practice what I preach and stay active with running, the occasional triathlon or marathon and an average game of golf! I enjoy a challenge and believe in a healthy body, healthy mind.
