Aside from telling the best ‘Dad jokes’ in Cairns, Matthew has over 30 years of experience working as a Physiotherapist in multiple countries in both public and private settings as well as with elite sports teams. He arrived in Australia 20 years ago to a job with the Brisbane Broncos before working as the physio for the Melbourne Storm rugby league team. For the last 15 years, Cairns has been home where he has combined private practice and working with elite athletes and international sports teams. Matthew is currently the Chief Physiotherapist for the Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee which involves working with individual athletes and teams at international events as well as mentoring and training staff. He has a special interest in spinal and sports physiotherapy whose principles can be applied across the board to all in our community. Matthew has a firm belief in always taking opportunities to learn and has undertaken a wide range of post-graduate studies in NZ, Australia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Turkmenistan, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, and the UK.
In Cairns, he works with clients in the clinic as well as athletes and teams from various sports. He feels that physiotherapy has a lot to offer both the young and old as well as the ‘occasional’ or elite athlete.
Matthew believes in keeping things simple and helping you to understand your condition in order to achieve your goal.
