B. Physio, M. Physio (Sports)
Professional Doctorate (current – La Trobe University)
Frank has over 10 years experience in Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy having acquired his skills through a diverse exposure to sports and musculoskeletal patients. Frank’s experience in Sports Physiotherapy has seen him work with a large spectrum of athletes representing AFL, Rowing Australia, Athletics Australia, A-League Soccer and Swimming Australia. His work with these athletes has primarily focused on overuse injuries that require a complex and often long-term treatment/rehabilitation plan.
Frank is also passionate about treating chronic lower back pain in the general population. He believes the key to success is identifying ‘primary drivers’ to a patient’s pain and structuring rehabilitations program that can easily be adhered too. It is for this reason that Frank is currently undertaking a 4-year Clinical Doctorate thesis investigating chronic lower back pain and the recovery benefits of Clinical Pilates.
Apart from Frank’s clinical work and studies, he is a co-director of Evado Studios and has overseen its growth since 2011. He is proud of the concept of Evado Studios which offers programs to people of all ages and fitness levels.
Frank also oversees Evado Education – a professional development company that delivers courses and workshops exclusively for the benefit of physiotherapists and other allied health professionals.
