With nine years’ practical experience, physiotherapist Andrew Olson is passionate about all aspects of physiotherapy, principally treating exercise and sporting related injuries and assisting people in returning to their chosen activity after injury.
Using the principals of functional rehabilitation to help people get the most out of their bodies, Andrew believes physiotherapy can play an equally important role in prevention as it does in rehabilitation.
Andrew is also a passionate yoga teacher and believes the principals of yoga go hand-in-hand with many of those of physiotherapy. “Yoga is the most wonderful practice, and has so many benefits for the body as well as the mind,” he says.
Andrew strongly believes in addressing the psychological aspects of physical health. He says this is part of the reason he is so excited to be part of Raindrum’s Allied Health team which includes physiotherapists, dietitians, massage therapists, psychologists, and acupuncturists.
