We’re excited to introduce our new Physiotherapist, Valentine Akem. Valentine graduated from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2011. He has since worked in North Queensland Physiotherapy practices in Port Douglas and Townsville, and has just recently returned from a two year period of working in the United Kingdom. During this time he worked in both private and public sectors of Physiotherapy and treated clients with a wide range of issues.
Valentine has been trained in the application of dry needling which he utilises frequently to aid clients experiencing pain and tension. His clinical interests include the treatment of chronic lower back pain, orthopaedic rehabilitation, sporting injuries and applying an active approach to rehabilitation when treating clients. Valentine has a keen interest in soccer and enjoys outdoor running, going to the gym, and cooking.
