Introduction: Brenton joined the team at LifeCare Frankston as a physiotherapist at the beginning of 2013 after working in the public sector for 3 years. Brenton has enjoyed the change in roles, particularly working closely with patients to achieve their best possible function to reach peak performance in both the sporting and general population. Brenton has also enjoyed working closely with the team to help manage chronic pain and associated conditions and assisting with returning to work following injury. Brenton is also involved with running a chronic pain management program at Frankston Private Hospital which he does with precision.
Since joining the practice, Brenton has been involved with the Frankston Pines Football Netball Club, providing them with injury assessments and management both during the week and on game day. Brenton has also recently been involved with the Frankston Districts FC in the AFL Super Rules competition as their physiotherapist and trainer.
Professional Interests: Brenton has an interest in the whole spectrum of injuries, from acute sporting injuries to chronic pain and associated issues. Brenton has a special interest in AFL injuries, baseball throwing injuries and post-surgical management, as well as helping patients with chronic pain return to work and leisure activities.
Personal Interests: Brenton enjoys all aspects of being outside, with a particular interest in fishing and boating which is where you will find him when he is not working at LifeCare. He currently plays baseball for the Sunshine Eagles and is looking forward to spending some time on his road bike over the summer months. Brenton is also a passionate Geelong Cats supporter, attending as many games as possible throughout the year.
Brenton’s main other interest is spending time with his partner Sally, whether it be helping her out on her family’s farm or soaking up the sun on a beach somewhere.
