From the time Joe wasn’t much taller than a patello-femoral joint(that’s physio-speak for knee cap), he’s been fascinated with how the human body moves and works. This innate curiosity, combined with a deeply caring nature and joy for working with people, meant rehabilitation was his calling. He grew up fighting against a chronic respiratory disease. He wanted to help himself and the people around him to achieve optimal health in life through physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
In the past decade since Joe earned his physiotherapy degree in Physiotherapy at Sydney University, he’s built a:
– vast knowledge and expertise in rehabilitation and patient care
– deep understanding of things that cause people’s pain and suffering
