Who is the Disc Golf Physio?
Hi there! I'm Jackson, a Physiotherapist, Greyhound Owner and Disc Golf tragic. I'm now into my fourth year of Physiotherapy practice in the big wide world and am loving every minute of it! I am currently based up in Bendigo (Central Victoria) in a brand new Wellness Centre which has recently opened. As a Physio, I tend to always look at ways to improve movements or to reduce the risk of injury - something that I feel is really lacking in Disc Golf. Even though we are flinging plastic around a course, it takes a massive toll on our bodies.
As for my experience - I've been lucky to work with elite athletes, weekend warriors, post-op patients and everyone in between. Primarily I've worked in the private sector treating musculoskeletal injuries with some neurological experience as well. Getting people doing what they love is what I enjoy - because it sucks when you are stuck on the sidelines.
I've started Disc Hub Vic to be a place where people can get information regarding injury prevention, strength and conditioning, rehabilitation advice and tips from some of our own disc golfers. Disc Hub Vic is for complete beginners, for professionals... Basically, anyone who is playing disc golf and wants to stay out on the course for longer!
