B. Health Science (Physiotherapy)
Josh graduated from the Auckland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Physiotherapy.
Josh has experience working with a range of patients suffering from acute and chronic conditions in rehabilitation, sporting and hospital settings. Having been involved with a number of AFL and Rugby Union sports clubs in New Zealand, both as a physiotherapist and as an athlete, has helped Josh understand and relate to the challenges, barriers and feelings faced during rehabilitation and working towards health goals.
Josh believes in the importance of a patient-centred approach taking into consideration how biological, physiological, and social factors interconnect and influence recovery. He does this by working closely with patients to formulate an individualised plan that addresses their needs and assists them to return to full physical function.
Josh has a strong interest in optimising performance in athletes and providing quality rehabilitation to the general population using a combination of treatment modalities including manual therapy, exercise and education.
Josh specialises in treating golfers and plays off a scratch handicap himself. He uses a range of treatment strategies to rehabilitate specific golf related injuries and works with clients to produce individualised exercise programmes training the body to move efficiently and effectively in the golf swing, reducing chance of injury and improving performance.
Outside of Evado, Josh enjoys spending time on the golf course or footy oval where he plays both competitively.
