MEET RYAN

Physiotherapist
B Physiotherapy
Ryan’s interest in the body and how it functions began in his high school years, where he competed in athletics at a state level and participated in recreational indoor top rope climbing. Before long, Ryan sustained an elbow injury from climbing, leading to a halt in his activities. Following outstanding treatment from a physiotherapist which allowed him to resume his sports, Ryan had decided that he wishes to bring the same quality of physiotherapy treatments to others in need, in the same way that he had experienced years ago.

In 2020, Ryan began studying his Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the Australian Catholic University and completed this degree in October 2023. During this time, Ryan also worked for 3 years as a physiotherapy assistant in a hospital setting, providing him experience in post-surgery rehabilitation. As a believer in ongoing learning, Ryan loves opportunities to learn new treatment techniques to maximise the quality of his work with clients. Ryan enjoys helping clients manage and overcome their conditions and injuries through employing a select combination of therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, advice and education, and other techniques.
