Tim-2_edited.png

Tim is a highly experienced and skilled physiotherapist with extensive experience spanning across the public and private health care systems.

 

Working as a clinical educator for the University of South Australia and a physiotherapist at many of SA Health’s major acute hospitals and rehabilitation facilities has given him a comprehensive understanding of the Australian health system. This enables him to assist his clients in navigating this and equips him with the skills and knowledge to optimise the outcomes of even the most difficult and complex rehabilitation cases. 

 

Tim’s passion for sport started as an aspiring athlete himself representing South Australia in cricket and Australian Rules Football. Choosing football provided Tim with the opportunity to represent the North Adelaide Football Club for 10 years and gain exposure to some of South Australia’s best physiotherapists. 

 

His long term commitment and experiences within this professional sporting environment coupled with his own experience in rehabilitating through numerous injuries places Tim in a unique position to understand what you are going through when facing setbacks from injury. 

Having been through a variety of personal injuries and having extensive success with his own clients, Tim’s organic knowledge in rehabilitation is unique. His passion to reach the client’s goals comes from a thorough understanding of the injury, rehabilitation process and his empathy for each patient.

 

Tim has worked and continues to work with numerous professional and semi-professional athletes and organisations. He values genuine relationships and loves the long term relationships that he has made as part of the Body Fit community. 

 

When not at Body Fit, Tim loves spending time with his young family and staying as active as possible. Go-to fitness for Tim includes running, bike riding and olympic lifting.
