Matthew Pollard is a passionate Exercise Physiologist, focused on empowering people to live healthy and active lives.
Matt has extensive experience in human movement and high performance, with athletes (of all ages and stages), from both a rehabilitation and a high-performance perspective. With a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science and a Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology, Matt’s key role in the Rowville Sports Academy exercise team, and his reputation in his field have seen him placed on the Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology Course Advisory committee at Deakin Uni.
With a general case background including high performance, Matt has developed a keen interest in the area of lower limb rehab, particularly around the knee, foot, and ankle. Matt is fascinated by the integration of the entire neuro-musculo-skeletal system. “As the foundation for integrated whole-body loads, the foot and ankle complex has always been a passion of mine.”
This combination of skills has resulted in Matt developing engaging, dynamic exercise rehabilitation protocols with the Foot & Ankle Rehabilitation Australia team. A valued member of the FAARA team, Matt works closely with some of Australia’s best Foot & Ankle physiotherapists and surgeons.
Matt’s specialty is identifying the most important factors for rehabilitation and then providing a treatment plan to address those areas for improvement that are likely to lead to the best possible long-term outcomes.
Having ruptured his Achilles playing basketball and subsequently experiencing foot and ankle surgery and rehabilitation firsthand has given Matt an increased appreciation for our patients’ process.
Along with his role as Director of Exercise Services at Rise Health Group, Matt is available for Foot and Ankle Rehabilitation appointments with FAARA at Berwick, and East Melbourne working alongside top Foot & Ankle surgeon Mr. Otis Wang. You can also book FAARA appointments with Matt at RHG Scoresby.
