Having grown up injury prone on the sporting field and spending much of his time as a patient himself, Joel understands the impact and frustration that comes along with injuries. This drove his passion for physiotherapy and the desire to provide his clients with the highest quality care. His dedication, compassion and positive demeanour, help to inspire, encourage and drive those around him to success.
In 2018 Joel suffered a complete ACL tear in his right knee. After a reconstruction surgery he took on the challenge of mastering his own rehab in conjunction with Andrew Ilieff, and now completely understands what is required from both a patient and therapist in order to have a successful and holistic approach to returning from injury.
Joel has a strong background in human anatomy and a passion for musculoskeletal and sports related injuries, and particularly enjoys working with young athletes. Joel has over 7 years’ experience coaching gymnastics at both Ascham and Kincoppal School, with a focus on coordination, strength and balance.
Joel has 7 years combined study and has gained experience and developed skills across a broad range of areas including sports, orthopaedic rehabilitation, neurological rehabilitation, geriatrics, paediatrics and cardiopulmonary. Joel uses a combination of exercise therapy, manual techniques and evidence-based practice to help his clients return to optimal health and to prevent further injuries.
From Joel you can expect:
High energy, a constant smile, the perfect balance of hands on treatment and exercise prescription, and finally, through personal experience, an understanding of what it takes to get the results you want.
B. Physiotherapy (Hons), APAM
Physiotherapist And Rehabilitation Specialist
Doctor of Physiotherapy – Melbourne University
B. Ex Sc – Wollongong University
I began studying a Bachelor of Exercise Science at the University of Wollongong, while working as a personal trainer and coach at a local gym. After graduating, I moved on to study the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at the University of Melbourne while working as personal trainer. The combination of a B. ExSc and years of experience in the fitness industry helped to focus my interest on exercise and movement rehabilitation, and this is still a focus of mine today.
Having the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives, and to enable them to continue to do what makes them happy, is the reason I am a physiotherapist. I am committed to utilising the latest evidence to getting you back to doing what you love to do and optimising your rehabilitation to achieve your goals.
