Rowan McPhee is a Titled Sports Physiotherapist. He completed his undergraduate physio degree through Curtin University in Perth in 2007. After working for a few years in private practice in Perth, his love for travel took him to London, where he lived for 4 years, working with a mixture of high flying CEOs, diplomats, journalists, actors and dancers. Upon returning to his home town of Perth, Rowan’s curiosity for learning led him to undertake the Masters of Clinical Physiotherapy (Sports and Exercise Major) at Curtin University where he was awarded the Dr Diana Hopper Prize for the Sports Masters student with the best clinical results.
Rowan has worked in a diverse range of clinical settings, from home visits and aged care to hydrotherapy and gym rehabilitation. He has worked in both amateur and high level sport, including his current role as head physio for the WA U16s State AFL Team and previous roles with Fremantle Women’s AFLW, AFL Masters WA and with the Perth Lynx in the WNBL. He was also lucky enough to work with elite basketballers during the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018.
During his time in London, Rowan also had the opportunity to provide treadmill running assessments and rehabilitation/return to run programs for those looking to get back to running pain free. He gets great satisfaction in providing runners of all abilities with tools to achieve their personal goals.
Rowan loves the outdoors and loves staying active along Perth’s beautiful coastline with a mixture of swimming, cycling and running. Rowan grew up playing a diverse range of sports and loves to learn about all aspects of human movement. His personal milestones include completing the Copenhagen Marathon, Bussleton Half Ironman and playing representative football and cricket.
