After graduating in 2001 Paul spent his first years as a physiotherapist working at the Gold Coast Hospital and then abroad in England. From these humble beginnings Paul’s passion for delivering a quality service in private practice has evolved together with a wide variety of skills to apply to every complaint that comes through the door. With a thirst for new knowledge Paul has spent countless hours learning as much as he can about the art of clinical therapy and has on the side also completed his business masters (MBA). He now pursues study in the field of neuroscience and integrates this with his background in physiotherapy to create a wider viewpoint for client assessments and treatments.
