Qualifications

Bachelor of Science (Sport and Exercise Science)
Master of Physiotherapy

Why do I love what I do?

I love being able to help someone out of pain and get them moving again, the smile on that persons face when they experience pain free movement makes it all worth it.

For me its about going above and beyond to treat the cause of the injury. Very rarely is the area of pain the cause of the problem. To stand out it takes a bold physio to analyse the movement and treat the cause, so that you can move without pain

Harrison Brown

Physiotherapist & Clinic Manager

Qualifications

Bachelor of Physiotherapy

Why do I love what I do?

What I love is that no minute is the same, no injury is the same, no body is the same and no goal is the same. We are all unique and designed to move as we have been established to. I enjoy being someone that people can share their lows with and celebrate their highs with. This is what makes me so invested in my clients journey.

I love being a being a physiotherapist, however, my passion is about making sure that those that come to see me know that they are not on their own with their ambitions to achieve their goals.

I make it my mission to give each individual the best experience at each visit. It’s important to go above and beyond, to support people through their low moments, show direction to their ambitions and then share their joyful achievements or milestones.

To stand out, it is important to be different. Too often I see the downfalls to our society, where we are too busy to commit to our bodies. We are looking for a quick fix to move on with our hectic schedules. However, I like to treat the person and the true cause of the issue, rather than patching up an injury.

This comes through breaking it down and looking at how the body works as one. This is achieved through movement principles, hand on treatment and a multifactorial framework, as we all designed differently.

Life achievements?

I get great satisfaction from seeing people I have treated around the Eastern Suburbs who have a smile on their face, enjoying their daily life without pain or limitations with their movements.

Why do I love what I do?

I get to wake up every day and make a difference by helping people in their journey to achieve their goals and live life pain free. Life is better when you can do the things that bring you enjoyment. I am fortunate enough to be able to help people do that and have a laugh whilst doing it.
I take the extra time and give extra attention to ensure every box is ticked in an individual’s rehabilitation. Our bodies are complex, amazing machines and every part needs to work smoothly and in unison to ensure you can move the way your body is uniquely intended to.

Master of Physiotherapy

Why do I love what I do?

Seeing people reach their goals is what drives me every day. I love taking my patients on a journey to reach capabilities they thought were not possible. Getting you out of pain is only the beginning, my job as a physiotherapist is to identify the root cause of your injury and to prevent the same issue happening again. I have a keen interest in new evidence- based assessment and treatment techniques; this allows me to be effective and efficient for my patients and get them back to doing the things they love sooner rather than later.
