Areas of Clinical Practice:

As Active Rehab’s Neurosciences Team Leader and Spinal Neurosurgery Clinical Stream Leader, Simon coordinates and provides mentoring to our Neurosciences physiotherapy team. He has a passion for the management of patients with back and neck pain, and supports them through their full journey from conservative management through to pre and post-operative management, helping patients to achieve their personal and work goals.

Simon uses innovative technologies, including Physitrack – a leading rehabilitation and telehealth app, to support his patients both pre-operatively and immediately after their hospital discharge. Via Physitrack, he is able to connect with his patients to monitor their progress and upgrade their rehabilitation programs in the comfort of their own home.

Simon graduated with a Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Queensland, receiving a Dean’s Commendation. Prior to this he completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science at Griffith University, where he also received the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence.

During his studies, Simon worked as a sports trainer for the Brisbane Strikers Football Club, while also completing officer training in the Australian Army Reserve.

In his spare time Simon enjoys spending time with his young family, keeping fit and is an active member of the Army Reserve.
