Chris de Dear
Chris is the newest physiotherapist to join us at Watsonia, graduating from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Applied Sciences and Master of Physiotherapy Practice. He has long had a passion for physiotherapy, growing up playing sport and seeing all different sorts of injuries and gaining a curiosity for how they were managed.
Chris enjoys treating patients across the lifespan and a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly sporting injuries and osteoarthritis. He enjoys not only treating injuries and helping people return to function but working with his patients to prevent future injuries.
Having completed his DMA Clinical Pilates certification, Chris is actively involved in our Group Rehabilitation and Clinical Pilates program.
Chris is a keen sportsman, playing football for Heidelberg Football and Netball Club, as well as social netball and golf, and has a passion for watching sport, particularly his mighty Richmond Tigers at the MCG. Chris also enjoys reading, swimming, and spending time with friends.
