Alistair graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of South Australia in 2003. He has had extensive experience working in the area of musculoskeletal physiotherapy in Adelaide for well over 15 years.
He uses a combination of manual therapies, dry needling and exercise-based interventions and is passionate about injury prevention and patient education.
Alistair’s special interests are musculoskeletal and sports injuries, dry needling, gym-based rehabilitation and hydrotherapy. Outside of work his interests include golf, running, movies and music.
I first came into contact with Physiotherapy as a keen sportsperson at High School. I had some hip pain aggravated by my heavy involvement in cricket, field hockey and athletics. It responded really well to a course of treatment and some exercises from my local physiotherapist.
I was really impressed by the whole experience, so when it came time to choose a career path at the end of School, I thought to myself Physiotherapy would be a good fit for me – it was.
I really enjoyed my university studies and graduated with a desire to make a real difference to people’s function and lives. I have worked in both private practice physiotherapy and hospital settings in Adelaide developing a broad range of skills and experience. I continue to develop my skills as a physiotherapist and have most recently completed a cancer rehabilitation course (Steel Certification).
In my leisure time I enjoy playing golf and am a bit of a film buff.
