Hi everyone! My name is Andrew Brown and I’m very excited to announce that I have returned to my home town to join the team at Rusden Street Physiotherapy.

I have graduated from the University of Queensland with a Masters of Physiotherapy, andundergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science. My interests in Physiotherapy include all types of musculoskeletal injuries, sport performance and chronic pain. I believe that a combination of specific manual therapies and exercise prescriptions will assist you in reducing pain, returning to the playing field, or moving better for life.

I look forward to meeting you all, and helping you to achieve your goals for 2017.

Rusden St Physio and WorkHealth Australia have won the Armidale Business Chamber ‘Excellence in Small Business’ Award. I am very humbled by the support from our patients and clients who nominated us for this award and in the Business Leader New England Enterprising Woman categories, for which we were finalists.

Many thanks go to our hard-working physio’s and our wonderful reception staff. And of course our clients, without whom we would not be the team we are today. Everything we work for is to help people move better for life, and winning the awards is recognition that our clients believe in us and believe in what we stand for.

Thanks again we hope to do everyone proud as we make our way to the regional awards in Tamworth.

Best wishes,
Deb Hunter, CEO, Rusden St Physiotherapy and WorkHealth Australia.
