Sick of receiving bad healthcare? I was too...

From my military service I have received my fair share of injuries and illnesses that I continue to work on. I have a family, wife and two young children, that I sometimes find difficult to play with due to injuries and illnesses that I sustained while serving.

I had become frustrated with the health care I had received in the past, feeling that it fell short of my expectations. I felt that my providers didn’t fully explain my condition or the reasoning behind the treatments they prescribed. Looking back, I believe that some of the advice I received was just plain wrong.

During my time as an Exercise Physiologist I have been fortunate to assist University of Southern Queensland (USQ) by providing supervision to their exercise physiology students on professional placement, as well as being the Chair of the USQ Sport and Exercise Advisory Committee.

“I am proud of what I have achieved in the last 12months. I am actually half my starting weight… having lost over 63kg. But so much more than weight loss… it’s my personal strength, my fitness, my self belief. You have helped me believe in myself, my strength, my abilities… so thanks for everything you have done as part of my journey. In case no one has told you recently, you changed my life… so thank you”
