Adam Horwitz

Physiotherapist


Adam has recently returned to Sydney after spending 8 years working in Physiotherapy Private Practices in the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. Adam graduated from The University of Sydney with an applied science degree in Exercise and Sports Science followed by a Masters of Physiotherapy. He has undergone further training in Western Acupuncture and Dry Needling as well as attended a range of further education courses for the management of shoulder pain, headaches, TMJ Disorders (Jaw Joint), vertigo/vestibular dysfunction and spinal pathologies.

Adam developed a keen interest in Physiotherapy and injury management through competing in Football, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Squash over the years. He uses a variety of techniques to help diagnose and treat his client’s injuries. His effective treatment planning includes easy to understand advice and education, soft tissue therapy (including dry needling), joint mobilisations and exercise prescription.

His inpatient hospital training gave him an in-depth knowledge of medical management of a variety of conditions and the effect hospitalisation can have on the body after discharge. Adam is fortunate to have worked with some of the leading hip, knee, shoulder and spinal specialists in the country. He is well experienced rehabilitating patients following joint replacements, including Total Knee Replacements, Total Hip Replacements and Total Shoulder Replacements.

Through further training in Pilates and his involvement with Brazilian Jiu jitsu, Adam has a deep understanding of human movement, biomechanics and how to use exercise to stimulate adaptation and recovery.

Adam has extensive experience in managing sports related injuries. He has worked with the Sydney FC strength and conditioning team and provided on field injury management for the Tongan Rugby 7s Youth Olympic team.

Adam recognises that every client is unique and recognises the importance of collaboration with his clients and their wider medical team (GP, specialists and other health professionals) to manage their pain and decipher what the most ideal form of rehabilitation will be for them.

In his spare time, Adam likes to hike, train Brazilian Jiu jitsu, play guitar and travel.
