G’day, I’m Matt King and I am a Physiotherapist who is currently completing my PhD at The La Trobe Sport and Exercise Medicine research Centre. My research is investigating the biomechanical implications of Femoroacetabular Impingement (a condition involving a growth abnormality of the hip) and its progression to the development of early osteoarthritis. Along with undertaking my PhD I work privately at Symmetry Physio and Sports Medicine on the western side of Melbourne.
Prior to the commencement of my PhD in 2016, I taught Exercise Rehabilitation and Clinical Anatomy and Neuroscience into the physiotherapy course at La Trobe University and completed research into the participation habits of children with disabilities.
