Blake McConville – Physiotherapist
Growing up in his native Canada, Blake witnessed the importance of Physio directly with a close family member requiring intense rehabilitation to allow them to recover full function following a severe injury. This inspired Blake to study Kinesiology (sport science) at the University of Calgary in 2011, before moving to Perth in 2012 to attend Curtin University where he earned his masters degree in Physiotherapy.
Blake is especially interested in treating low back and neck pain due to his own personal history of spinal injury through his life. Knowing first-hand what it feels like to have radiating low back pain and the associated fear and apprehension that can often accompany exercise and movement thereafter, Blake is especially motivated in returning sufferers of neck and back pain to normal movement and function through the combination of manual therapy and exercise prescription. Taking the time to get to know his patient’s is what Blake values most about being a Physio.
When he’s not working as a physiotherapist, Blake is making music with his violin, playing video games, or scuba diving as often as he can.
