About Craig ...

I have been working as a physiotherapist in the musculoskeletal and sports industry since graduating from Otago University in 2005. During this time I have specialised in sports physiotherapy and rehabilitation, including completing my Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Medicine via Otago University in 2008.


During my career I have worked in various musculoskeletal and sports clinics as well as elite, high performance sports teams across various sports including Netball, Football, Rugby and Cricket. I currently work with Tauranga Boys College First XV Rugby team and am also contracted to High Performance Sport NZ to help some of NZ's top athletes perform on the world stage.


In 2013 I established Foundation Sports and Rehabilitation Clinic. We work with athletes of all ages and abilities helping you recover from injuries, remain injury free and improve your performance. My main areas of interest are spinal and sports rehabilitation while taking into account whole body mechanics. I believe in not only treating your pain, but identifying any underlying causative factors that may have attributed to the condition and provide you tools, through exercise prescription to help prevent future injuries and improve your sporting performance.
When I am not working I spend as much time as possible with my wife and kids as well as play football, run and try to get out fishing as much as possible.
