Ray’s journey of becoming physiotherapist started with his childhood regular visits to clinics and hospitals as both his mum and older brother injured their lumbar spine (protruded discs) in accidents. His frustrations in his earlier days witnessing his loved ones struggling with staying painfree long-term has sparked his curiosity and respect for the complexity of chronic injuries.
Ray graduated from university in 2004 and since worked in a busy practice in Castle Towers Medical, along with over 20 GPs, sport physicians, specialists, which was also next to a busy orthopaedic day surgery centre. Ray was well exposed to sports injuries both in individual and team sports in the practice for 5 years and became the head physiotherapist in charge of all complex cases of sports injury, post-operative orthopaedic rehabilitation for both creational and professional athletes, before moving on to found ActiveMotion Physio in Ryde 2010.
Ray has an insatiable curiosity and extensive knowledge in diagnosing and treating chronic dysfunctions due to old injuries. He has a very holistic, unique and effective approach in addressing pain he described as "unresolved traumatic experience”, which often due to poor diagnosis, causing the body to perform non-optimally.
Ray has helped many athletes (typically golfers, rowers, ironmen, marathon runners) competing nationally and international, to break through the barriers of their old injuries, and return and break their personal best!
