Quentin is both recognised and respected as an expert in the field of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
Quentin graduated from the University of Queensland (UQ) in 1990 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree. Quentin travelled to Perth in 1996 and undertook a post graduate diploma in manipulative therapy. The reasoning behind seeking further education in WA was to gain important experience and mentoring from well renowned physiotherapy experts in Perth to build on his knowledge gained from the experts at UQ.
In May 2007, Quentin qualified as a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist - a significant achievement in his clinical pathway.
Quentin’s research interests have included the study of clinical applications of diaphragm and abdominal muscle control in low back pain. His special clinical interests include spinal pain and rehabilitation of spinal muscle control and thoracic spine & rib movement disorders.
In addition to managing his own practice, Milton Physiotherapy, Quentin has also been extensively involved with teaching in different areas of musculoskeletal physiotherapy around Australia and has held additional positions as a Clinical Researcher (1997 & 1998) and Associate Lecturer (1998-2004, 2007-current) with the University of Queensland lecturing at masters level of musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
Quentin continues to take an active role in supporting the clinical pathway for physiotherapists being involved as a facilitator on the specialist training program and examining at the fellowship exams.
The latest addition of Greive’s Modern Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy (well recognised physiotherapy textbook) features a contribution from Quentin regarding his clinical expertise in assessment and management of Thoracic spine and rib cage pain.
A Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists, Quentin is passionate about improving peoples’ lives by empowering them with the knowledge and techniques they need to maintain movement as part of an ongoing self-management process. He is constantly applying his research to develop best practice for both his clients and his peers.
