Having had work experience in the public health system in Western Australian and China, Josh has developed a strong passion for treating a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders, particularly lower back pain, shoulder disorders, hip and knee injuries, and complex sporting injuries.

Having experienced first-hand the frustrations of injuries, he has developed a deep understanding of both the physical and mental aspect of overcoming injury. As a result, Josh strives to provide the best standard of care to all his patients with up-to-date evidence-based treatments, with a significant focus on empowering patients to achieve their personal goals and the best quality of life.
