John Pompei has just returned from a stint working at the Commonwealth Games where he worked with Squash, Table Tennis and Boxing. It was a great experience and reward for John’s efforts as a physiotherpist over the past 12 years.
Bayden Campbell has been working hard covering time while John was away as well as working with Old Camberwell, Old Marcellin and Old Xavierians football clubs. It’s been a busy start to this football season.
Andrew Kokinos has been also busy with the start of the AFL season. There has been numerous significant injuries from broken hands, ACL tears, Shoulder dislocation to broken ankles and others. Any of the injuries needed further scans and orthopaedic follow ups have been achieved super quickly due to our fantastic network of specialists.
We are open all through the Christmas and New Year period apart from the main public holidays (CHristmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day). We may work a few half days in this period so please leave a message if we dont answer the phones and we will get you an appointment.
