Cam was inspired to become a physio by his uncle, who was a successful physio in Sydney before establishing a practice in Olso, Norway. Growing up, Cameron would contact his Uncle over the phone most weekends for injury advice!  Cam maintains regular contact with his uncle via FaceTime and has even travelled to his practice in Norway to pick his brain on the way he treats his patients.

In his youth, Cam suffered a number of sporting injuries that required treatment in Sydney. These regular trips fuelled Cam’s interest in the rehabilitation process, particularly in regard to strength and conditioning. Cam also realised through these regular trips to Sydney that access to health services is not equal. As a proud Wiradjuri man who is passionate about his culture, one of Cam’s goals is to ensure that health services such as physiotherapy are inclusive and accessible for everybody in the central west.

Cam started his journey in physio when he enrolled in a Bachelor of Exercise Science (Rehabilitation) at Charles Sturt University. After graduation, he went on to complete a PDHPE degree at CSU and taught for two years. Cam then pursued a Master of Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney.

Since graduating in 2016, Cam has been working in Bathurst in aged care. Cam believes that developing strength is a key component to being healthy. He has started up exercise classes for his elderly patients, encouraging them to become strong and keep on moving no matter their age!

Now that he has commenced his career at Bathurst Physio, Cam is intent on continuing his development as a physio in the areas of functional strength and sports injury rehabilitation for athletes of any age.

Cam enjoys the Bathurst lifestyle with his wife and young son. He spends his free time playing golf and AFL, as well as chasing his two dalmatians around the local park.
