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. 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 over the next four years. He returned to Melbourne University to complete his Master’s degree over another two years, helping to strengthen his focus on shoulder disorders.
His early practice years were spent working in many multidisciplinary areas, mainly advanced spinal and sports medicine work at two leading Melbourne Clinics - Brighton Spinal Clinic and Olympic Park Sports Medicine Clinic. Cameron taught for a year at Melbourne University's Bachelor Physiotherapy program, consulted for pre-post orthopedic spinal surgery and was head physiotherapist for local and national sports teams while increasing his focus on sub-specialty work.
Shortly after completing his Master's Degree in Australia, Cameron moved to Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada..
Cameron now works primarily as a clinician 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 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 specialized clinical 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) with the Victorian Institute of Sport and currently spends most of his athletic time playing squash, kayaking, swimming and specific strength and conditioning. Vancouver living has also added a touch of mountain biking, snowboarding and cycling to the list!
