Physiotherapist & Director
James is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist with over 10 years’ experience. He completed his BSc Physiotherapy with Honours in Edinburgh 2004 and spent the next 2 years perfecting his trade rotating through musculoskeletal NHS clinics in Edinburgh. During this time James provided physiotherapy cover for local rugby teams and was the academy Physiotherapist for the Hibernian Football club through the 2007/08 season.
James travelled to New Zealand in 2008 to work at Wanaka Physiotherapy in the Southern Alps where he worked a full case load in the private clinic and provided physiotherapy cover to the local rugby team. Through the snow season James was involved in the treatment and rehabilitation of both recreational and international skiers and snow boarders as well as the NZ Winter Olympic Team.
James moved to the Mornington Peninsula in 2009 and completed his Masters in Manual Therapy through the University of Western Australia while working at Pinnacle Physiotherapy and The Sports Injury Clinic. During this time James has provided Physiotherapy cover for many of the local football and netball teams and completed his DMA Pilates training.
James is now full time at South Coast Physiotherapy. He enjoys being part of the close knit multidisciplinary team that the clinic offers and enjoys the challenge of seeing the wide variety of injuries and conditions that come through the door. James uses hands on treatment techniques but ensures that education and pursuing functional activity are the driving forces behind his injury management.
In his free time James enjoys tackling the Red Hill mountain bike tracks and early morning crossfit sessions as well as spending time with his young family.
