Kevin is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. He graduated as a physiotherapist from Auckland in 1986, completed a Masters degree in Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy) from the University of Queensland (UQ) in 1991, and completed his PhD in physiotherapy at UQ in 2003.

Over the past 20 years as physiotherapist for Cricket Australia and Queensland Cricket, Kevin has provided physiotherapy services and workload guidance to all levels of men’s and women’s teams (national and state) including Test match tours, International One-day series, T20 and age-group World cups, touring extensively internationally. He has managed the rehabilitation of Australia’s elite cricketers from long term bone, muscle, and tendon injury. He has extensive experience and expertise in the assessment and management of lumbar stress fractures, lower limb bone stress injuries and low back pain in athletic and general populations. Working in a cricket environment has also cultivated specific skills in the assessment and management of the upper limb (especially throwing injury to the shoulder and elbow) and managing the rehabilitation and training loads of athletes through adolescence. Kevin has an interest in injury prevention and led the development of the physiotherapy cricket screening assessment used in all Australian States. He also has a PhD and as an active researcher is widely published on lumbar bone stress, other cricket injuries and hip dysfunction.

He is a regular examiner and mentor for the Australian College of Physiotherapy specialisation process. When he is not at work he is a busy taxi running kids to sporting events and may be sighted on his mountain bike on the trails around Brisbane.
