Calum was born into an athletics/health family so he always had an interest in training and rehabilitation.
Calum took up athletics at a young age where he won several youth titles before switching to soccer where he played in the NZ national league and went on several international tours, including trips to Argentina/Chile. Recently he has been more focused on weight training, when he am able to squeeze it into my busy lifestyle of treating patients and running a business.
Calum has a keen interest in rehabilitating injuries, whether sporting; a sprained ankle, a dislocated shoulder or a muscular imbalance created by years of lifting weights, or work related; shoulder pain from overhead lifting or back tightness from sitting too long at a desk.
He prefers using hands on techniques so he can accurately identify the issues and treat in a way which generates the best results. When appropriate he like to use his training experience from running and weights to facilitate your recovery.
As well as working with athletes Calum has also worked with a major Australian airline preforming injury screens/manual handling and rehabilitating their staff. Workplace injuries while different from sporting injuries often share some common similarities.
He find when issues are addressed correctly they can often be maintained through specific exercises and simple adaptions to everyday life.
Areas of interest:
