Meet Adam McKnight Perth’s Shoulder Physiotherapist
Introducing… Adam McKnight – Perth’s Shoulder Physio.
For over ten years, Adam has been fixing shoulder pain. He’s worked as a shoulder physiotherapist for the Perth Shoulder Clinic’s specialist shoulder surgeons and assisted hundreds of patients with physiotherapy after shoulder surgery. Adam has vast experience in acute shoulder injuries such as shoulder dislocations and rotator cuff tears and has helped even more patients avoid shoulder surgery altogether.
The variety in his training provided unique and unprecedented access to some of the country’s leading shoulder surgeons and shoulder 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. He’s even considering a PhD related to shoulder physiotherapy.
Ironically, he dislocated his own shoulder in 2019 and required shoulder reconstruction surgery. So, rest assured, Adam can relate to the pain and suffering your shoulder is causing and will do everything he can to find you a solution.

The Perth Shoulder Physio Story
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, Adam dislocated his own shoulder in a snowboarding accident, allowing him to experience shoulder surgery and rehabilitation first hand - he truly understands the pain and frustration you may be experiencing
Now, Adam continues to update his shoulder physio skills and knowledge by attending countless courses, witnessing shoulder surgeries, reading scientific articles and collaborating with other shoulder physiotherapists. He also facilitates courses for Sports Physiotherapy Australia and Sports Medicine Australia. He’s even considering a PhD in shoulder physiotherapy.
