Cameron is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist from Melbourne University, Australia. Cameron has dedicated the majority of his clinical experience to developing new assessment and treatment strategies for shoulder pain, offering treatment options for pathological and non-pathological shoulder disorders. His awareness of the major literature and clinical gaps have led him on a search for better outcomes by refining strategies for a variety of shoulder disorders.
He intially completed a Bachelor of Science studying Pharmacology, Anatomy and Physiology immediately followed by a Bachelor of Physiotherapy, both at Melbourne University in Australia. After several years in public, private and sports physiotherapy he returned to Melbourne University to complete his Master’s degree in Musculoskeletal (Manipulative) Physiotherapy in 2002 - 2003, helping to strengthen his focus on shoulder disorders.
Early practice years were spent working in many multidisciplinary areas, including advanced spinal and sports medicine work at two leading Melbourne Clinics - renowned Brighton Spinal Clinic and Olympic Park Sports Medicine Clinic. Cameron also consulted for pre-post orthopedic spinal surgery, was head physiotherapist for local and national sports teams and taught clinical skills within the Bachelor of Physiotherapy program at Melbourne University.
Shortly after completing his Master's Degree in Australia, Cameron moved to Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.
Cameron now consults primarily as a clinician and educator, treating a variety of shoulder disorders along with any associated upper quadrant problems. He maintains two busy clinical practices in Vancouver with a pure shoulder caseload. He also provides consulting services to select sporting teams including the West Vancouver Otters Swim Club. He has gained various insights through his Master’s program, learning and studying with a variety of excellent clinicians and researchers, along with continually refining his methods in shoulder rehabilitation over the past 15 years.
Cameron is a recently published researcher and ongoing clinical educator to the physiotherapy, medical and allied health professions. His main interests are now focussed on sub-specialty musculoskeletal rehabilitation and its application in the medical and rehabilitation fields.
Cameron has also been active in over 20 sports during his career reaching national competitive levels in some sports. In Australia he was involved as athlete and physiotherapist in high-performance programs (squash) within the Victorian Institute of Sport and he currently spends most of his sporting time playing squash, kayaking, swimming and specific strength and conditioning. Vancouver living has also added a touch of mountain biking, snowboarding, golf and cycling to the list!
All courses and masterclasses are designed by Cameron focussing on identification and effective clinical treatment of various shoulder disorders using a combination of physiotherapy and multidisciplinary methods. Courses include the Mastering the Shoulder Series™, select Masterclasses, custom MTS™ courses and a recently designed intensive MTSI (International) course.
