Alex graduated from the University of Otago in 2019. He hails from the winterless North and after 5 chilly years in Dunedin he wanted to relocate to a warmer, sunnier environment. What better place to choose than Blenheim as the next step on his Physiotherapy journey. Being new to the area Alex is all ears for learning about the hidden gems the Marlborough region has to offer.
A self-professed sports nut Alex will have a crack at just about anything. Rugby is his current sport of choice and he has signed to play for the Renwick Rugby Club. Being a sportsman he knows from experience how easily an injury can stop you enjoying the outdoors, social occasions and day to day life. Alex is passionate about getting people back on track and back doing the things they love. View details »
Kieran joined us at Edge Physio in early 2018 after graduating from the University of Otago with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Kieran reckons he brings some youth to the Edge team. We aren't sure what that means about the rest of us! He has a strong interest in back pain, overuse injuries along with sport and work related conditions.
Despite growing up overseas for a period of time Kieran did a large chunk of his school years in Blenheim so considers himself a local. He is happy to be back in a warmer climate after spending several years in Dunedin as a scarfie.
Like all of our team at Edge Physio Kieran is passionate about movement and sport and is enjoying being back amongst the Marlborough sporting community. View details »
