Hi, my name is Andrew Gaterell and I am a Physiotherapist with over 9 years experience at private practice clinics in Canada and Australia.
In addition to my physiotherapy degree, I have a degree in Human Kinetics (the study of human movement) and am currently pursuing a diploma in sports physiotherapy through Sports Physiotherapy Canada.
I believe strongly in patient empowerment. I will always take time to clearly explain the findings of my assessment in a way that you can understand and ensure that your concerns and objectives are incorporated to any treatment recommendations and plans.
Clinically, I am happy to treat all patients, of all ages, with all musculo-skeletal complaints. I do however have a special interest in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of sports injuries.
Treating more than just the injury
I have a longstanding interest and extensive experience working one-on-one with individuals interested in optimizing their performance and movement efficiency .
Under the banner of Elite Movement, I focus on the identification and treatment of health and performance issues. The goal – optimized body function and performance levels.
Outside of work, I spend my time training and competing in individual and team sports. I am an avid competitive soccer player having competed in Canada, England and Australia. In addition to soccer, I spend my time: mountain biking, rock climbing, surfing, playing ice hockey, running and strength and conditioning training. While in Australia I obtained my PADI certification and have gone scuba diving with the sharks.
