Physiotherapist BPhysio (Hons)
Matthew joined physioPoint when he moved to the Blue Mountains in 2020. He is a physiotherapist who studied at the University of Newcastle. He completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours), which means he can provide high-quality treatment using current best practice to guide you on your road to recovery. Since completing his undergraduate degree Matthew has gone on to do extra training on the shoulder, the neck, the ankle and dry needling.
While studying at university Matthew also tutored musculoskeletal, neurological and visceral anatomy in the labs with real specimens, which has given him a more in-depth knowledge of structures throughout the body that may be impacted. This has aided greatly in his diagnostic ability and understanding of the role of tissues in injuries.
Matthew has a long sporting background, competing at state and national levels in trampolining. He has since become an avid (borderline obsessed!) rock climber, which influenced his decision to move to the Blue Mountains. When he’s not at work you can find him out at the cliff two to three times every week, training in the gym or swimming at the local waterfall.
