About The Move Clinic
We’re focused on you achieving positive long-term health outcomes through physical activity. With our help, you control the process of reducing or preventing injury, chronic disease or pain. We use a powerful combination of education, manual therapy and physical exercises in individual and group settings to improve your health condition and reduce your pain. Our consultations aim to empower you with the knowledge, lifestyle strategies and movement techniques to self-manage your health.
We believe prevention is better than cure, and physical conditioning for sport performance and daily life is crucial.
What Sets Move Clinic Apart
From the moment you walk in our doors, you’ll notice that we are different. Coming to Move Clinic is a unique experience for many reasons.
We treat more than symptoms
At Move Clinic, our goal is to fix your problem, not simply treat your symptoms. We work to determine the underlying cause of your condition. For example, if you come to us with neck pain, we won’t just look at your neck. We’ll look at the rest of your body to help you understand what is going on, and why. We’ll then develop a treatment plan that will not only help with your recovery, but will also reduce the likelihood of the condition or injury reoccurring.
We’re not just Physios
At Move Clinic, we are a team of Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists and Personal Trainers. We have also partnered with an Accredited Practising Dietician who works here every week. We understand that sometimes our clients require an integrated approach to reach their goals or treat their condition. We use the skills of our whole team to develop strategies to help you achieve the best possible outcomes for your health.
We understand what it takes to be the best
Move Clinic is owned and run by two of Australia’s top athletes. Lee and Andrea have dedicated years of effort to their sport and their professions alike. They understand what it takes to get the best results from your body.
Meet The Team
Lee is a broadly experienced Physiotherapist with a history of working with patients across an extremely diverse health spectrum. He has a strong passion for helping people to change their physical experience and movement behaviours. His assessment and treatment methods are firmly grounded in the biomechanical details of human movement, while also having a strong focus on the emotional and behavioural elements that are critical to long-term sustainable change.
Lee’s interest in the human body and improving movement performance began as a teenager when he dedicated many hours to researching different training methods to help his rock climbing. He applied his knowledge to his climbing and has since spent the majority of the last two decades among the top climbers in Australia, establishing many of the country’s hardest and most adventurous climbs.

Chris is passionate about applying the latest research to help people improve their quality of life. His sporting background, combined with his strong attention to detail, means Chris projects his high expectations of function from athletes upon all of his patients.
