Born and bred in South Gippsland, Chris joined the BIM Camberwell team in early 2016 after completing his Masters of Physiotherapy Practice. He previously completed a Bachelor of Health Science (majoring in Anatomy and Physiology). He is very passionate about helping others overcome musculoskeletal injuries that are interfering with their day-to-day life and their ability to exercise.
Away from the practice, Chris loves watching and playing sport, playing guitar and going to acoustic gigs, as well as embarking on adventures back to the country coastline to see his family.
Favourite thing about my job?
The thing I love most about my job is the interaction with people. Be that my fellow Physio colleagues, reception staff, clients or Clinical Exercise regulars. It is a very welcoming workplace and I really enjoy being part of a small team who are all striving towards helping people achieve their best health outcomes. I also love the ongoing learning process that is required as a physio. Through internal and external professional development sessions, my clinical reasoning and problem solving skills are always being challenged. It is a refreshing and stimulating job for sure.
Greatest challenge in my role?
Trying to compete with Anne G. in the footy tipping. Watch out next year Anne! I was only 50 points behind… I finished 3rd from the bottom.
Favourite body part to treat?
Lumbar Spine – this is my favourite area to treat as lower back pain can be so disabling and significantly prevent people from doing what they love. Be it high-level sport or simply gardening, I love helping people overcome their back pain and the emotional toll that it can have as well.

I try to relax by?
Playing guitar, watching sport/movies, gym, cycling and of heading back home to Foster in South Gippsland to see family.
Top 5 dinner guests?
If I wasn’t a physio, I would be?
If I wasn’t a physio I think I would be doing something to do with building and construction. I love house construction and renovation. I think one day when I retire I would love to do up old houses somewhere close to the coast.
