DVA Physiotherapy in Melbourne

Returning home from deployment, or leaving the Defence Force after many years of service can be a truly difficult time for many service men and women. A convoluted system, and time delays in processing can put extra strain on an already challenging situation. Here at Evolutio, we are well placed to provide a location that can help ease your mind.

With extensive experience both in the military, treating and rehabilitating veterans and in educating our team on the mental and physical toll that both the training and deployments can take on the body. We believe we are best placed to provide a support network, in addition to hands on treatment, pain relief and strength programs to those who need and deserve it most.

We take pride in our ability to cater for all levels of athletes, and understand that many ex service men and women, find it hard to acknowledge that they need support or guidance. We’ll work with you to find the perfect balance of care, so that you can return to your physical best.

I personally take a great deal of honour in treating and rehabilitating DVA clients here at our physiotherapy clinic in Richmond and love working with our team on their skill sets in this area.

Improvements in the billing system for providers like us, has helped our ability to bulk bill clients with both white and gold cards. If you’d like to come in and have a chat with one of our awesome physio’s, feel free to book online and just note at the time of booking that you’re a card holder.

After all, if we look at the positives, at least you don’t have to get out of bed at 4am with your sheets hung over your shoulder.

We look forward to welcoming you into the clinic soon.

Raised as a sandgroper over in W.A, Alex was handed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and asked to leave the university lecturers in peace for good.  As a matter of filling his time, he also graduated from the Royal Military College as an Infantry Officer in 2008 after finally pointing his rifle in the right direction and making his bed to an elite level.

Moving to Melbourne in 2010 in an episode similar to that movie Coyote ugly, Alex has since worked in a few sports physio clinics across Melbourne, coached CrossFit, done power-lifting training courses, walked a 45km mt buller trail run and worked at North Melbourne football club.

Alex founded Evolutio in 2013 to provide a hub for the next generation of great physio minds to work together on high level athletes.
