Luke was drawn to Physiotherapy through his love of sport and physical health. This began with involvement in athletics and both rugby codes during his teens and twenties, and more recently with his love of tennis, functional strength programmes.

Luke initially studied exercise science then completed a Masters in Physiotherapy through Sydney University in 2004. In the thirteen years since graduation, Luke has attended many courses including Kinetic strength training, fascial assessment and treatment, McKenzie spinal courses, Watson Headache courses and many sports physio courses.

Luke is committed to further his working knowledge in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy through ongoing study. Luke has successfully undertaken the challenging Australian Physiotherapy Association Sports Titling process. This process involved completing the level 3 sports physio course at the Australian Institute of Sport. The title of “Sports Physio” is a reflection of the higher level of clinical skills associated with the assessment, diagnosis and management of sport related injuries.

Luke has been actively involved with teaching of the next generation of physiotherapists.  He regularly mentors physiotherapy students throughout the year and has lectured and tutored Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at Charles University Orange over the last five years.

Luke looks forward to working with you with all things Musculoskeletal. He has a particular interest in tendon and knee pain, postural dysfunction and headaches. As a father to three younger children he also prides himself with connecting with the younger age groups. Luke has an easy manner and a knack of explaining complex pathology in easy down to earth language.

After work, Luke enjoys building, cooking in his home made pizza oven and drinking craft beer while watching his beloved Canberra raiders!
