Having graduated with an honours degree in Physiotherapy from Trinity College Dublin, Paul began working in the world renowned Sports Surgery Clinic in Ireland. Here he worked under the tutelage of expert clinicians and researchers in the prestigious SSC Athletic Groin Pain and ACL clinic, which began his love for integrating high level strength and conditioning principles with rehabilitation. This ensured not just return to play or baseline, but return to high level performance. 

Paul moved to Perth in 2016, and has worked in private practice and sport as well as providing Physiotherapy and Injury Management Services to BHP and RioTinto. He continues to provide Occupational expertise to BHP’s Nickel Refinery in Kwinana.
