Andy is a Sports Physiotherapist at Bioathletic and Head Physiotherapist at Manly Rugby Union.

With a freshly minted Masters in Sports Physiotherapy and APA Level 3 Sports credentials under his belt Andy loves that he gets to work in a field where each day is different – where no two injuries are the same and each person’s response to treatment differs greatly.

Working in a profession where science is continually evolving, means you never lose sight of the big picture. Andy feels it’s more important to focus on the big goals of each person, and it’s this philosophy that he carries into his work as Head Physio with our beloved Manly Marlins, and more recently on tour with Tonga Rugby.

Regardless of the goal, Andy loves working with anyone who has a big target. He gets a kick out of being part of a team environment and loves to geek out on the technical side of sports like running and swimming, which might explain his own laundry list of sporting endeavors (running, triathlon, rock climbing, snowboarding and surfing) to keep himself in tip top shape.

Rumour has it, he’s even trained as a ninja.

But proving that the simple things are always best you’ll find Andy loitering in a beer garden on any given Sunday afternoon with a bunch of mates and stories of his intrepid travels or that one time he submitted an entry for the Tropfest short film festival.
