Stuart has a passion for Physiotherapy and encouraging people to lead healthier lifestyles. He graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy.

Stuart worked at the South Coast District Hospital in Victor Harbor, giving him extensive experience in the rehabilitation of hip, knee and shoulder surgeries. Most of Stuart’s career has been in a busy private practice environment, where he feels confident delivering individualised treatment plans to ensure every patient has a swift recovery.

 

Other areas of interest include undertaking functional movement screening and corrective exercise prescription for athletes. Stuart also has a special interest in Parkinson's Disease and runs a specialized exercise group called 'PD Warrior' for people with Parkinson's Disease.

By far and away Stuart’s favourite part about being a Physiotherapist is helping people get back to sport, work and the activities they love to do.
