Adam McKnight: Expert Shoulder Physio in Perth
Adam McKnight is your expert shoulder physio.
He's been fixing shoulder pain for over ten years and has his own first hand experience with shoulder dislocation, surgery and rehabilitation.
The shoulder is a complex and challenging joint, prone to causing considerable pain and disability. Unsatisfied with the quality of shoulder treatment available, Adam embarked on a journey to develop specific expertise in the area of shoulder pain diagnosis and treatment. Ironically he went on to dislocate his shoulder in a snowboarding accident, allowing him to experience shoulder surgery and rehabilitation first hand.
Adam is an Australian trained sports physiotherapist, completing his Bachelor of Physiotherapy at Curtin University and going on to excel in a Masters of Sports Physiotherapy at Latrobe University in Melbourne. The variety in his training provided unique and unprecedented access to some of the country’s leading shoulder surgeons and physios. The ensuing mentoring and exclusive exposure to numerous shoulder surgeries, post operative rehabilitation and treatment of elite athletes allowed him to develop the shoulder knowledge and experience he has today.
Adam continues to update his shoulder physio skills and knowledge by attending countless courses, witnessing shoulder surgeries, reading scientific articles and collaborating with other physiotherapists. He also presents courses for Sports Physiotherapy Australia and Sports Medicine Australia.
Having suffered from shoulder pain in the past, Adam can relate to the burden your shoulder pain places on your lifestyle. He would value the opportunity to assist you in overcoming your injury.
No shoulder issue is too great or small. If it’s affecting your life then Adam’s here to help!
