Shiv has a passion for sport, performance, and injury prevention.
He combines knowledge gained as a previous state level gymnast, and current advanced level gymnastics coach with his experience as a practitioner, to deliver coordinated management of an athlete’s condition. As a barefoot athletic pursuit, gymnastics presents some unique challenges for Foot & Ankle injury management.
As a physio at international competitions, Shiv has shared his knowledge with and learnt from world class physios, coaches, and athletes. In addition to gymnastics, Shiv has experience treating athletes in Australian Rules Football, soccer (including National Premier League), rugby and netball, running, martial arts and many other sports.
Shiv’s passion for Foot & Ankle Rehabilitation is a natural progression of his sports background, furthering his knowledge base with additional training. He currently sees a wide variety of cases including athletes from various sports and non-athletic Foot & Ankle conditions. His expertise sees him working with athletic injury, degenerative conditions, tendinopathy, postural deformity, trauma and post-surgical patients.
“I’m continually motivated by managing patient’s Foot & Ankle conditions, creating exceptional outcomes for patients, and making a difference to people’s lives”.
Skills used in this process include: strength and conditioning, Pilates (DMA certified) manual therapy, exercise prescription and supervision, and empowering patients through education.
Outside of clinical hours Shiv likes to stay involved in gymnastics, dance, gym-based training, boxing, and spending time with family and friends.
