Doctor of Physiotherapy – Melbourne University
B. Ex Sc – Wollongong University
Titleist Performance Institute Certified
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.

Knowing his athletic ability might preclude him from starring on the field, he made it his goal to be as close to the action as possible. Making a name for himself in Wellington, and later Christchurch as an elite sports physio, he worked with teams including the Wellington Firebirds provincial cricket team, Canterbury Sevens Rugby team and many other clubs/codes through the years.
Frustrated by the “status quo” of physio in Christchurch, he opened his own clinic, with a focus on personalised physio solutions. Over the last four years it has grown to be a multi-location practice with four physiotherapists on staff. He now finds himself in Sydney as his wife is a Surgical Fellow at St Vincent’s hospital.
Managing the Christchurch business and looking after twin toddlers keeps James pretty busy, but he is enjoying making the most of the Sydney weather, running, ocean swimming and getting out on the bike.
A background in sports physiotherapy and elite rehabilitation means he knows how to get you back on track and stay there! A tailored balance of appropriate manual therapy, with personalised rehab programming is his forte, and with over ten years of experience and a proven track record, you’re in the best possible hands.
