Qualifications: Master of Physiotherapy, Bachelor of Human Movement.
Gordon has nine years of experience as a physiotherapist and has been at Thompsons Road Physiotherapy for the past six years. He has a passion for adolescent, sporting injuries and injury prevention. Gordon also enjoys treating non-sporting injuries to allow people to get back to work, or perform their daily functions without pain. Seeing people return to pain-free life or achieve their activity goals is Gordon’s main driver in Physiotherapy.
After finishing a degree in Human Movement (Sport Science), Gordon completed a Master of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney in 2006 and subsequently worked at Sydney’s RPA hospital. In 2007 Gordon travelled to Europe and worked in private practice while living in Dublin, playing Gaelic football in his spare time.
Returning to Melbourne in 2009, Gordon joined the team at Thompsons Road Physiotherapy, where he sees all injuries, particularly low back injuries, neck and shoulder pain and sports injuries. He is qualified in dry needling and is one of our qualified clinical pilates instructors. During 2015, Gordon travelled to Papua New Guinea for three weeks to work with their Olympic team at the 15th Pacific Games.
Gordon is the team physiotherapist for the Melbourne Renegades women’s team in the KFC Big Bash League, the Victorian U18 women’s cricket team and the Victorian Indigenous cricket team. He is also the current team physiotherapist for the Victorian Taekwondo (Poomsae) squad.
Fun Facts: Gordon’s favourite food is pizza and he states that Drew Petrie (with his North Melbourne team-mates) is welcome to the house anytime. He has a hidden talent in beer, making a wicked home brew with his brother and loves his live music…and of course cricket.
