Tristan has spent his time as a Physio in both Men’s and Women’s sports, including roles as the Physiotherapist for North Brisbane Rugby Union Club in the QLD Premier Competition and the Brisbane Lions AFLW team.

Tristan has experience in managing acute and chronic conditions, and progressing a patient through their rehabilitation with an emphasis on establishing meaningful patient goals, and allowing rehabilitation to be tailored to the individual.

Tristan enjoys working with recreational and elite athletes to achieve their goals, as well as treating a range of musculoskeletal conditions such as Shoulder, Hip, Knee, Ankle and soft tissue injuries. Tristan also has a keen interest rehabilitating patients pre and post-surgery, and working on injury prevention strategies.

Tristan is a Geelong local. Prior to becoming a physiotherapist, Tristan spent 5 years as a Remedial Massage Therapist, including 2 seasons at the Geelong Football Club. Tristan has also trained in Matwork and Equipment Pilates. This allows him to effectively incorporate both ‘hands on’ treatment and exercise into his patient management. Tristan has recently returned to Geelong with his wife and 2 kids from Brisbane.
