Joining in late 2018, Doug brings a wealth of experience to our Pakenham Lakeside practice. Moving into private practice following graduation from a Physiotherapy degree, and then completing further postgraduate studies in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 1990, Doug’s career has been varied. He has worked with spinal surgeons in the treatment of chronic back conditions, he has also enjoyed a focus on working with elite athletes, having treated international level triathletes, equestrians (and their horses), baseballers and martial arts athletes. He has a major interest in Dance Physio – he has completed levels 1, 2 and 3 studies in this area – and has assisted all levels of dancers from local schools to international performers and company members with their injury and rehabilitation needs.
Not content to simply treat, he is a keen dancer and martial arts enthusiast, and is still completing 5th degree Taekwondo.
