After completing his undergraduate degree at Sydney University with 1st Class Honours, Adam went on almost a decade later to complete his 2nd degree, a post graduate double Master Degree in Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy here on the Gold Coast at Griffith University. Adam has worked alongside, and gained knowledge from, several prominent high level Physiotherapists and Sports Physicians in Australia. This invaluable experience has resulted in the high level of practice that Adam delivers in the clinic. Adam has also undertaken Research Roles in Sports Physiotherapy, with publications in renowned Physiotherapy Journals.
With an extensive sporting background, Adam has a keen interest in the mechanical cause of injuries and his injury management strategies have an emphasis on rectifying the cause of the problem rather than solely treating the symptoms.
Adam utilises a “hands on” and functional approach to treatment, forming clinical diagnoses through thorough assessment. Treatments include using a combination of soft tissue release techniques, joint mobilisations, dry needling and functional strength and conditioning retraining to reduce pain and restore function.
Prior to moving to the Gold Coast in 2012, Adam was Team Physio for the NSW Men’s U21’s hockey side, Australian and NSW Touch Football Teams, GPS Rugby and Rowing in association with The King’s School, and National Gymnastics Level competitions.
