ABOUT Chris Hibbert

Chris gained his undergraduate degree in Physiotherapy before specialising in Manipulative Therapy in which he achieved his Graduate Diploma. Chris also became a certified TPI Physiotherapist after training in California, USA, which makes him one of our resident golf performance and injury consultants, skilled in golf biomechanics and all aspects of physiotherapy.

Chris is a strong advocate for providing effective manual therapy to assist with pain management and improve joint mobility for all types of injuries and conditions such as osteoarthritis or pre- and post-operative care. While we’re proud of our state-of-the-art technology here at our Melbourne CBD Physio clinic, some pain is best managed through more traditional means. Chris delivers treatment using his hands, through massage and measured movement, placing pressure on the affected muscles and joints to reduce tension, minimise risk of spasm, and to improve joint function, flexibility, and movement.

Chris also supports post-surgical patients through healing and recovery. Currently, Chris works alongside OrthoSport Victoria surgeon Mr. James Canty and private practice orthopaedic surgeon Mr. John Salmon, who, like Chris, have a special interest in injuries to the shoulder, elbow, and wrist.

While Chris is proud to be a local physio, offering physiotherapy in the Melbourne CBD, he has gained experience as a physiotherapist all around the world. Previously, Chris has worked with renowned spinal surgeon Mr. John O’Brien in both Oswestry and at the London Clinic in the United Kingdom, and with rehabilitation specialist Mr. Vladimir Janda at the Charles University in Prague. As a football fan one of his greatest achievements is as Head Physiotherapist for the Collingwood Football Club; ‘The Pies’.

Chris has always shown an interest in sports, which is what lead him towards sports physio in Melbourne. A former football player, Chris played A-grade amateur football when he was younger, although today he is a keen golfer; a sport that helps him to offer effective physio in the CBD not only for golfers, but also for other sports enthusiasts. Chris is an active member of the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Black Rock, Victoria, and is proud of his impressive handicap of 9!

Chris welcomes patients at our Queen St. physio clinic, right in the heart of the Melbourne CBD.

You’ll find golfing, swimming and gardening in his spare time. His philosophy to physiotherapy is to treat the person, not the patient. The best piece of advice he’s received is it doesn’t cost anything to be nice.
