In 1998 Andrew Managed to develop bilateral stress fractures in his Tibias whilst in Training for the Australian Army. Determined not to allow something like broken bones to get i the way of exercise he decided to go to university to learn how to fix himself. During this time Andrew discovered a love of fitness and eastern Martial arts, particularly Kungfu, Tai chi, and Jujitsi. However a severe back injury (not caused by training) resulted in a semi retirement from contact sports whilst recovering. Acupuncture and pilates were important aspects of regaining full function, and after eight years of study Andrew emerged with a wealth of theoretical and practical knowledge in Exercise Rehabilitation and Chinese Acupuncture.
Studying Pilates and martial arts has given Andrew a deep understanding of how the body moves, and with his university studies he is able to use scientific principles of exercise in conjunction with traditional training techniques to provide individualized movement therapy. Before going into private practice with Move Ep, Andrew worked within Ballarat Health Service Hospital Outpatient ward as a clinical Exercise physiologist for 8 years, a period spent working within a multidisciplinary team of physiotherapist, Occupational Therpaist, Psychologists, podiatrists, Speech pathologists, dietitians and rehab specialists.
