Senior Physiotherapist + Clinic Owner
Clare is a sports physiotherapist and mother of two, with a passion for knowledge and a desire to help people, help themselves. Clare has been with Physio Inq since 2019, when she converted her physiotherapy business, Clear Physiotherapy, into Physio Inq Cranbourne. In 2021, Clare opened her second clinic, Physio Inq Aspendale, and in mid-2023, to expand, she moved the Cranbourne clinic to bigger and better premises.
Clare is a well-educated woman. In 1999, she graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. In 2005, she completed her Graduate Certificate in Sports Physiotherapy at La Trobe University, and in 2012, Clare added Sports Physiotherapy Masters, also from Latrobe to her impressive resume.
Clare enjoys treating all people, but in particular, sports people. She enjoys the challenges of Crossfit, cycling, swimming and golf, both as a participant, and as a physiotherapist. Like many physiotherapists, Clare comes from a strong sporting background, impressively representing Australia in the 2010 Triathlon World Championships.
After several childhood injuries requiring physiotherapy treatment, Clare developed a long-standing desire to be a physiotherapist. The worst of her injuries was to her lower back, which has left her with two degenerative discs. Clare, however, does not let this stop her, and it is this drive and determination, that she brings to all her patients and employees.
Matthew graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Doctor of Physiotherapy degree. He understands that every client and their injury is different, and the pain experienced can be complicated. Having the experience of working in a broad range of settings including private practices, community aged care and local football club, he has developed extensive knowledge in ensuring accurate prescription of rehab plans for clients with musculoskeletal injuries, sports injuries and work-related injuries.
As a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA), Matthew is committed to continue upskilling himself through attending regular professional courses. Outside of work, he enjoys a few games of squash and swimming, and of course watching some Netflix in the evening. He is also fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin!
