Lee Cresswell

B.Physio, APAM |

Lee graduated from La Trobe University in 2004 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy.  After graduation, he worked within Peninsula Health for two years gaining valuable experience in rehabilitation. Lee then ventured abroad and worked for the British Armed Forces at their naval base in Portsmouth, England. Rehabilitating armed personnel with multiple battle injuries proved both challenging and rewarding. Lee returned in 2008 and began working in private practice before joining Berwick Physiotherapy in 2010.

Lee has spent time working as a Physiotherapist at the Casey Scorpians in the VFL. Lee brings great experience in diagnosing acute sports injuries and assisting the local sporting community with their safe return to sport. Lee’s passion for sport and rehabilitation of injuries stems from many years recovering from his own sports related injuries at both local and district cricket and football levels.

Lee has also furthered his scope of practice by studying dry needling and completing his Clinical Pilates training at the world renowned Dance Medicine Australia, thus making Lee our Clinical Pilates specialist. His thorough clinical assessment and subsequent tailored pilates programs using both the Clinical Reformers and Trapeze Table is to be acknowledged. Lee continues to get great results using Pilates to treat and manage musculoskeletal dysfunction.

Lee is also a tragic cycling fan and enthusiastic rider who took pleasure in following and riding parts of the 2006 Tour de France. Lee’s knowledge of cycling biomechanics and bike setup can assist our patients in avoiding cycling-related overuse injuries.
