Frank Care

Director | Principal Physiotherapist

Bachelor of Physiotherapy 
Master of Physiotherapy (Sports)

Frank has over 15 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 programs to address these issues. It is for this reason that Frank began a 4-year Clinical Doctorate in 2015 investigating chronic lower back pain and the recovery benefits of Clinical Pilates.

Frank is a Director of Evado Studios and has overseen its growth since its inception in 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 program that delivers courses and workshops for physiotherapists about the latest treatment and rehabilitation protocols for various musculo-skeletal conditions.

Special interests:
