Joshua is particularly passionate in employing a collaborative goal setting approach to therapy utilising techniques such as functional rehabilitation, individualised exercise programs, manual therapy and joint mobilisation.
Why did you want to become a physiotherapist?
As I entered year 12 I started exploring what careers were available that best matched my passions. I knew that I liked getting to know people and building relationships, and I have always been very passionate about sports and health. The more I explored different career pathways the more physiotherapy stood out as a way to satisfy both passions in a meaningful way.
Without doubt I think the most enjoyable part of working as a physiotherapist is helping people achieve their goals. I believe you always make a personal connection with anyone you work with, and this means that often when they achieve their own goals you share their sense of accomplishment. I’m passionate about seeing people return to the activities that injury has been holding them back from, and I love getting to see people return to participating in things that they are passionate about.
I also love the problem solving element of physiotherapy and how the individual nature and circumstances of a person’s injury means that treatment and rehabilitation will never be exactly the same. I really enjoy collaboratively problem solving how to manage and rehabilitate an injury that works with an individual’s personal circumstances and lifestyle.
