Andrew is a highly experienced physiotherapist who represented New Zealand in Lacrosse. He has a keen interest in sports injuries and understands that all types of pain and injury need to be considered from a Biopsychosocial perspective. Understanding the biomechanics alone is not enough in many cases. Andrew has also completed Dr Penney's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program and uses mindfulness based interventions as part of his overall approach. This approach is also important when dealing with degenerative changes and osteoarthritis as the science and evidence whilst very clear in this regard, is not often understood by patients or implemented by practitioners.
