Corey is an integral part of our hospital and outpatient physiotherapy teams and really values the opportunity he has to follow his patients through the various phases of their rehabilitation from ‘Prehab’, through the hospital and their outpatient recovery. 

Corey has a keen interest in sport and loves to share his enthusiasm for fitness and healthy living. He brings this passion to his work, where, with his extensive knowledge and kind and consistent approach, he seeks to educate and inspire his clients to succeed in achieving their health and wellbeing goals. 

Corey guides his patients with compassion and his approach to patient care is holistic. As a physiotherapist with a background in personal training and bodybuilding, he enjoys guiding and motivating his clients to engage positively with exercise. He believes that rehabilitation is a team effort and prides himself on taking the time with his patients to ensure they fully understand their injury and treatment plans. 

Corey really enjoys working as part of our clinical education team, supporting final year physiotherapy students as they learn the skills they require for their future careers.  

Corey likes to spend time playing the guitar and taking his border collie, Beau, for a run.
