Rob believes that every person is an individual and therefore needs to be treated that way when seeking treatment for any musculoskeletal condition. He feels that each person’s treatment should be tailored to their individual needs.
He believes that what makes a good physio is a person who genuinely cares for his or her patient, and who listens intently with empathy. A good physio is sincerely invested in achieving the best possible outcome for his or her patient in all situations.
