You might say that Mick did it tough getting to his final dream of being a Sports Physiotherapist. With too many 'distractions' he didn't gain direct entry, and only just scraped into Exercise Physiology with a very late 'cash-only' offer. Then, after overseas travel, and on the back of his rural upbringing, he snapped up a place in a newly minted Physio program in Townsville @ James Cook University.
However, once his ball was rolling it hasn't stopped. With stints in Townsville covering rugby, Newcastle covering soccer and in Melbourne, netball, Mickha amassed a range of Sports Physiotherapy experience in a range of high-performance teams. He also developed a deliberated focus on ACL prevention and rehabilitation.
Learn how and why Mick deliberately built his social platforms as part of his business within a business plan, and where he would like to see Physio grow.
