The Physio Plus team was lucky enough to have Nelson join the team in 2018. Areas of particular interest for Nelson are musculoskeletal injuries, sporting injuries, chronic pain and as well as post surgery rehabilitation. He has a particularly special interest in the shoulder, lower back and knee. No matter the goal, whether it be returning to the work place or the sporting field, Nelson can help you out.
Outside of work, Nelson is the loving father of 2 and works as hard at home as he does at work to support his lovely wife. He has a strong interest in sport and travelling the world (when we were allowed to travel!). He also enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking and hanging out at the beach which is lucky considering the great access to beautiful beaches around Mackay. Besides his family and friends, his other main loves are the North Queensland Cowboys and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
