ABOUT ADAM

I am a passionate Physiotherapist completing my PhD at Bond University in ACL rehabilitation. I am the founder of Performance GC, an elite performance based rehab service for patients recovering from lower limb sports injuries. Through a strong commitment to continued development it ensures I have a depth of knowledge beyond that gained at university and am always up to date with the latest research and treatment practices.

I want to help people live a better quality of life. Whether this means being able to achieve at the highest level or play with the grandkids. I strive to reduce pain, improve performance, improve mobility, decrease stress and reduce medication use and need for surgery.

I have a strong interest and passion for sports physiotherapy, with a particular interest in lower limb sporting injuries. I want to find the solution for your needs.
