HERE’S WHAT WE’RE ABOUT!
What’s special about Tamborine Mountain Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic is that we promise to create an empathetic environment where people can receive excellent care, delivered with professionalism and good humour.
EXCELLENCE, EMPATHY AND HUMOUR
PRINCIPAL PHYSIOTHERAPIST / DIRECTOR – GARY BROOKS
Gary graduated from the University of Queensland with a Physiotherapy degree in 1989 and an Exercise Science degree ( Major in Exercise Physiology ) in 1992.
He originally worked at the PA hospital in Brisbane and for the Defence Force at both Enoggera and Canungra before starting his own private practice on the Gold Coast in 1994. He then moved to Tamborine Mt and has been practicing here since 1997.
He believes that providers should treat people as they would like to be treated themselves and therefore, everything about Tamborine Mountain Physiotherapy adheres to the core values of Excellence, Empathy and Humour.
With over 30 years’ experience in the field of musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy, Gary divides his time between clinical practice, and mentoring and educating the Tamborine Mt Physiotherapy team.
In his hours away from the practice, Gary enjoys triathlon and weights training as well as watching Rugby Union. As a keen sportsman himself, he understands the physical and bio-psychosocial issues people need to overcome to maintain health and fitness and return to activity after injury.
