I absolutely love it when someone looks at you and can move pain free for the first time! Knowing that you’ve helped get them there is something special, and I have a passion for helping improve my client’s quality of life; whether it be through treatment, exercise or a bad joke! (be prepared for a whole lot of puns and dad jokes). I’ve been fortunate enough to have had some fantastic mentors in previous positions who have given me great insight into what works, and what doesn’t. I’ve learnt from brilliant private practice owners and senior physios, got some great experience with stints in the NRL and NRC with the Canberra Raiders and North Harbour Rays, and completed professional development courses with some of the leading minds in the industry. But my absolute favourite experience was volunteering at a physio practice in the mountains in Japan. This was a ski in ski out town, and when I wasn’t in the practice I was carving up (falling repeatedly) on the mountain, living the dream! I firmly believe in helping people far beyond pain relief, as in most cases this is just the tip of the iceberg! Addressing the underlying issues that cause the pain in the first place is key. Providing quality assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, so that you can get on with your life, is what we’re all about. I live for fun and adventure, and will get out of the house whenever I can. Snowboarding is my happy place, and I’m never more content than cruising down a mountain by myself with headphones in. Overall health and wellness are an absolute priority, and I try workout mind and body everyday. I do this through outdoor training and in the gym, along with daily meditation, playing chess, brain games and whipping the guitar out and learning a new song. I apologise to my neighbours for when I was just starting to learn how to play! If you ever need to get hold of me feel free to shoot me an email at donovan@mygcsp.com.au or drop into the practice, I’m always happy to have a chat.
