imageedit 5 4653818234


Peter graduated from Monash University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and more recently (2018) with a Doctorate of Philosophy researching blended learning in physiotherapy and cost and value of education. He went straight into private practice following graduation and hasn't looked back since.
Peter comes from a background of football and music theatre. He is currently Head Physio at Frankston Dolphins (VFL) and Residence Physiotherapist at PLOS Musical Production. He also has experience working with professional music theatre performers in various productions including The Book of Mormon and Kinky Boots and as a sessional tutor and research assistant at Monash University. 
Peter particularly enjoys managing lower limb, hip & pelvis, and thoracic spine injuries. He thoroughly enjoys the challenge and the wide variety of clients that comes with private practice. Peter incorporates a range of manual techniques (including dry-needling) and complements this with Pilates-based rehabilitation with a focus on function and injury prevention.
