Keith has been practising physiotherapy for the last seven years after graduating from Monash University in 2011. To complement his passion and skill, Keith continued his academic learning and completed his Post-Graduate Certificate in Sports Physiotherapy, and soon to be received, his Master’s in Sports Physiotherapy from LaTrobe University.
Keith has a special interest and expertise in the treatment and rehabilitation of hamstring, knee, ankle and lower limb tendon injuries. His investment in sports physiotherapy has also seen him train with some of Australia’s leading shoulder physiotherapists to treat and rehabilitate sporting shoulder injuries that include dislocation, subluxations, AC joint and overuse injuries. He is keenly focused on identifying the possible mechanisms and causes behind these types of injuries, and is driven by the challenges of achieving the goals set by his patients.
Keith’s recent appointed as the High-Performance Manager of the University Blues Football Club (A Grade Amateurs VAFA) was a result of his successes in the role of Physiotherapist for the Australian Women’s Volleyroos and Victorian Vipers Hockey team (Australian Hockey League). On top of his on-field experience, Keith is a research assistant at the LaTrobe University Sport and Exercise Medicine Centre where he is able to contribute to the academic and research aspect of the profession.
Outside of physiotherapy, Keith enjoys staying active, a hit of golf, as well as trying out Melbourne’s great spread of restaurants and cafes.
