Adrian Haughey
Recently moved from New Zealand having spent over 5 years working and managing a Physio and Pilates clinic in Auckland. Originally from Ireland I have a strong musculoskeletal and orthopaedic background having worked with sports teams and in private practice since graduation.

I place a strong emphasis on functional rehab, manual treatments and patient education linked to postural awareness using the Pilates principles. I completed my dry needling and acupuncture post grad course in New Zealand 4 years ago and although I greatly enjoyed my time there I have moved to Melbourne in search of a new challenge to further progress my career.

I have participated in sports from a young age which has made me appreciate the value of physiotherapy in both my life and the lives of my patients. I have played soccer at a semi-professional standard and enjoyed my time playing Gaelic (Irish AFL) both in Ireland and in New Zealand. A keen golfer and tennis player I have found these sports have helped me greatly in my communication and leadership skills as well as enabling me to relate better to our elite athletic clients as well as our keen amateur sportsmen and women.

Andy Britten
Andy graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University in UK and has recently emigrated from sunny Scotland. Since graduation he has gained experience working private sectors in musculoskeletal, orthopaedic, medical and elderly rehabilitation settings. He focuses on neck/back pain, sports injuries and post op rehabilitation and management of chronic conditions. Andrew believes in manual treatment in conjunction with patient education and exercise prescription to allow optimal recovery and help patients achieve their goals.

Andy has a keen interest in soccer, both in a personal and professional sense. Having played soccer at various levels throughout his life, he was inspired to gain experience in the sport from a physiotherapy perspective. This led to a 3 year stint working for Celtic Football Club as a youth academy physiotherapist, which has rendered him highly proficient at both assessing and rehabilitating a host of sporting injuries.

He is also passionate about professional development and is currently awaiting a Clinical Pilates instructor course

He uses a range of skills including Dry Needling, manual therapy and targeted rehabilitation to help alleviate pain and assist people in achieving their goals.

Continuing to play football with Old Geelong in the VAFA, David has a keen interest in sports from a participation and professional standpoint. He has experience with acute and sub-acute sports injuries from his time providing services to VAFA and VNL teams and will be able to guide you from the day of injury back to full fitness.
