Up close and personal with Scott

  1. What made you become a physio/exercise physiologist?

I have always been fascinated by the human body and planned to work in the health industry from a young age. I was brought up to recognise the importance of an active lifestyle. Considering the positive impact of exercise on a number of chronic conditions, I wanted to share this with others to improve their health. I’m also aware that injuries can be very limiting, and I want to help people return to the activities they enjoy.

  1. What’s the best part of your job?

Empowering the patient to manage their injury or condition and getting the satisfaction hearing from them directly that they have been able to return to doing something that they love.

 

  1. What are your special interests?

I’m particularly interested in the hip and groin although I enjoy all things lower limb. Based on my past experiences both professional and personal, I have a preference for treating overuse injuries and returning to running.

 

  1. What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to surf, play touch football and run although you’ll more likely find me spending time with my daughter at swimming lessons or on the swing at the park. Recently I’ve been getting into golf although I’ve got a lot of improvement to make.

 

  1. Where do you live, how long have you been on the coast?

I grew up at North Avoca and lived around the area until the last few years when I moved to Niagara Park.

 

  1. Tell us something about yourself that other people may not know.

When people get my name wrong, they call me Chris and ironically this was the name my parents had originally planned to give me.

……And I’m a Manly Sea Eagles fan (but don’t hold that against me).
