Golf Specific Physiotherapy

Golf biography

Josh grew up playing golf in NSW Australia and played as a junior at a high level. Upon beginning his career as a physiotherapist he wanted to melt his passion for the game with his career and this spawned the idea of working exclusively with golfers. Since then Josh has performed golf specific work within his own practice, Physiologic and has serviced over 2000 golfers including professionals, amateurs and club golfers.

During this time he has worked closely with his friend and mentor, the late Ramsay McMaster, founder of the Melbourne Golf Injury Clinic and arguably the world leader in golf physiotherapy and fitness to ensure an ongoing first-class golf fitness and performance service.
