Why did Aaron become a physiotherapist?
With an unmatched passion for not only treating chronic and complex pain, but understanding its source, Aaron has been on a long journey of discovery and education. Aaron’s love for human anatomy was born from a curiosity of why pain occurs and how it can be prevented, having been through his own healing journey over a 15 year competitive weightlifting & sporting career.
Helping patients take control is why Aaron loves his job.
Aaron understands how feeling physical pain can psychologically slow you down and how it can disrupt daily life. Helping patients take control is why Aaron loves his job; he believes that pain should be used as a stepping stone for his patients, not a campground. "It is humbling to empower my patients to take control of their health and achieve their goals - it's the most rewarding part of being a physiotherapist!"
He has refined his rehabilitative approach through regular course attendance and experimentation on his own body (and any friends and family he can get his hands on!). Each session with Aaron is highly individualized to you: areas of concern are addressed and a holistic, completely bespoke plan of action is developed to get you back to peak performance.
Aaron's treatment style.
He is highly proficient in rehabilitative exercise therapy & manual therapy which include soft tissue release, joint mobilization and dry needling. He believes that manual therapy is the first stepping stone to reduce your pain which will then allow him to prescribe you individualised pain-free rehabilitative exercises to build the weaker areas of the body. These two ingredients are what Aaron practices and preaches and are critical components to bulletproofing your body.
