Josh Heerey is an experienced physiotherapist with close to 10 years’ experience working in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy. Josh has particular expertise in the effective, evidence-based management of hip and groin conditions. Josh has graduated from La Trobe University in 2008. In 2013, he completed his Graduate Certificate in Sports Physiotherapy. In 2015, Josh commenced his PhD investigating the causes of worsening hip joint disease in soccer and AFL players with hip restrictions (also known as femoroacetabular impingement or FAI). This large Australian Government funded study is the first of its kind in the world to track young and middle-aged athletes with FAI overtime, and will provide valuable information about the causes of hip and groin pain and the development of hip disease. With the knowledge gained from this research, Josh is able to implement the very latest evidence-based rehabilitation for people with hip and groin pain. He has a particular interest in the use of strength and conditioning training in his rehabilitation.
Josh has published work on the diagnosis and rehabilitation of hip and groin related conditions in leading sports medicine journals. He has also presented at state and national conference on hip and groin conditions.
