Adrian joined the Back In Motion Health Group to start the Camberwell practice in 2007. Born and raised in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, he completed his Bachelor of Physiotherapy at La Trobe University in 2000.
Adrian worked at West Gippsland Hospital for 2½ years, consolidating his orthopaedic, cardiothoracic, and neurological skills. In July 2003, he joined Hawthorn Physiotherapy Clinic, physiotherapists for the Hawthorn Football Club (AFL) and spent the next 3½ years there dealing in the management of acute sporting injuries. Adrian has great diagnostic skills, and employs a range of therapeutic techniques in dealing with his diverse clientele. He has also developed a strong network of Melbourne's Orthopaedic surgeons from his AFL days. He continues to work as the exclusive physiotherapy provider at the weekly post operative clinics run by Mr Otis Wang & Mr Sasha Roshan from the MOS Group.
Adrian became a Dad for the first time in 2013 with the birth of a little boy (Isaac). A little girl (Darcey) followed in 2014, which certainly keep he and his wife (Amber) very busy away from the practice! In his (now very limited!) spare time, Adrian is a keen runner.
Favourite thing about my job?
The fact that you never quite know who is going to walk in next. The different personalities and the varied conditions that I get to treat make the day interesting!
Greatest challenge in my role?
Time management. As a co-Director of the practice I have a number of responsibilities – finding the time to get it all done is a challenge!
Favourite body part to treat?
Melbourne Demons - the last decade has been character building, but we're now coing good…!
I am partial to a good steak, coupled with a nice glass of Shiraz of course!
I try to relax by?
Playing with the kids - I have a 5 year old boy (Isaac) and 4 year old girl (Darcey) and coming home to them always switches me off from any challenges I might have had that day. Otherwise a nice dinner out is always a winner!
Top 5 dinner guests?
Barrack Obama, Roger Federer, Bono, James Halliday (he could look after the wine list) and my wife (she’d kill me if she didn’t make the list…)
If I wasn’t a physio, I would be…
I’m a bit of a numbers nerd, so probably something in the financial world…
