Charlie Castleden


Charlie's academic journey culminated in a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of Notre Dame, a pursuit driven by his profound passion for comprehensively tackling musculoskeletal injuries. His personal journey, enriched by competitive experiences in surfing and AFL, has bestowed upon him a deep understanding of the critical role effective rehabilitation plays, not just in sports, but in everyday life. This unique perspective is the cornerstone of his dedication to enhancing his patients' mobility and functionality.


During his time at university, Charlie didn't just focus on learning theory; he actively applied his growing knowledge. As a sports trainer for the Mosman Park Football Club, he sharpened his practical skills, and through diverse practicals stretching from Geraldton to Albany, he embraced a wide range of rehabilitation strategies. These experiences, set in various private clinics, allowed him to cultivate a holistic approach to patient care.

Charlie currently volunteers as a lifeguard at North Cottesloe beach, and serves as a committee member of the Cottesloe Board Riders, where he actively promotes skill development within the surfing community. Outside of his volunteer commitments, Charlie finds excitement in surfing Western Australia's world-class waves. So, it comes as no surprise that his connection to the ocean not only fuels his passion but also informs his understanding of movement and rehabilitation, having first-hand experience of physiotherapy in water sports.


Charlie's engagement with movement and physical activity extends beyond his professional life. His favourite forms of MOTION include surfing—whenever the waves permit—running, AFL, and volleyball. Each of these activities not only keeps him physically fit but also continuously informs his understanding of the physical demands and rehabilitation needs of athletes and active individuals alike.
