Andrew completed his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Canberra in 2010, and worked in a multi-disciplinary pain management centre before completing his Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Canberra in 2013.
Since graduating he has worked in a number of private practices in Canberra and Sydney covering all aspects of musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Gaining extensive experience along the way in the management of sports injuries, acute and chronic pain conditions, as well as orthopaedic and post operative rehabilitation.
Andrew has worked as the on-site physiotherapist in occupational health with the Darrel-Lea Chocolate factory; and has been the physio for UNSW State League Football teams.
The bulk of Andrew’s ongoing professional education has been focused on his interest in pain management and its application across all conditions and injuries. Andrew believes strongly in the role of physiotherapy to educate patients to be active and self-managing in their recovery.
Andrew has long since retired from the rugby field, however in his spare time he is still a mildly enthusiastic exerciser. Most recently enjoying playing oz-tag, gym training and social running.
