Bede joined the Viva Physiotherapy Melbourne team a few years ago after jumping the ditch from Auckland, NZ.
Originally from Christchurch, Bede spent almost 10 years studying & working in Auckland, and completed his Post Graduate diploma in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 2007. Bede has a keen interest in sports physiotherapy, and is the current physiotherapist for the Essendon Bombers – attending trainings at Windy Hill Stadium three nights per week. Along with being the Bombers VFL physiotherapist since 2012, Bede has worked with a number of Premier Club rugby and soccer teams in Auckland. Bede also has post-grad qualifications in dry needling.
Bede is also particularly interested in spinal injuries, and enjoys using his manual therapy skills. He enjoys running regularly, as well as hiking/camping around Victoria. He is also enjoying all the good food, coffee & live music that Melbourne has to offer!
