Sean Cooney I B.App.Sc (Physiotherapy), Grad.Cert (Sports Physiotherapy) 

An enthusiastic and passionate therapist who believes that success as a health professional only comes from quickly getting to the root cause of any health concern and then setting a logical plan with realistic timeframes that makes sense to his patients.

Sean studied both Exercise and Sport Science and Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney and worked extensively as a personal trainer during his studies and for some time after. Sean has furthered his studies by completing his Graduate Certificate and all academic components of his Masters in Sports Physiotherapy.

Sean has been able to blend an approach that focuses on performance, and not just injury, and has adapted this to become the 4 phases at healthfix. He combined this with a 3P (personable, positive and professional) approach to care and believes these has led to the success of healthfix.

Sean is still passionate about his clinical work whilst also being instrumental in the team's professional development as the Clinical Services Manager.
