Mark is an Australian trained Sports Physiotherapist and has been practicing in both public and private healthcare settings since 2008. He completed his Physiotherapy degree from Curtin University with First Class Honours in 2007.
In 2011, he then went on to pursue a Masters in Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia, specialising in Sports Injuries. He was awarded the Brooks Award for topping his cohort in the Sports Physiotherapy module during his Masters.
Mark works closely with several Orthopaedic Surgeons, Pain Doctors and Sports Physicians to provide a holistic and systematic approach to treating his clients back to health. His areas of interest are in the management of shoulder, hip, knee, and back injuries.
He routinely uses functional movement assessment to screen his athletes for biomechanical asymmetry to correct the dysfunction at its source, and optimise athletic performance. Assessing and correcting functional body movement is part of his daily clinical practice, which spurred the founding of The Physio Movement and its core values.
During his free time, Mark enjoys jogging, trail runs at MacRitchie, road cycling and tennis. He became a 'covid cyclist' during the pandemic and now rides regularly with Rapha Cycling Club. He had done marathons such as Northface Ultra and Gold Coast Marathon in the past, and now focuses on triathlons. Mark will be headed to Desaru this year for the upcoming Iron Man 5150 Triathlon.
Mark's clinical specialities: Manual Therapy, Sports Injury Management, Post-Operative Rehabilitation, Clinical Pilates, Dry Needling, and Management of shoulder, knee, hip and back injuries.
