Andrew Fletcher Physiotherapist / Director
Andrew Fletcher grew up near Canberra, where he completed his undergraduate degree in Science and a Masters in Physio. He started his physio career in Canberra working with some of the country’s leading chronic pain clinicians.
Andrew has traded the open country skies of Bungendore for city-living, and he has made himself a Randwick / Clovelly local for the past 8 years. Since coming to Sydney he has worked at some of Sydney’s best sports and orthopaedic physio practices, as well as gaining significant experience with occupational health, pain management and pitch-side sports physio.
Andrew loves all aspects of being a physio, and especially enjoys the wide-array of people that he gets to engage with on a daily basis. Two of Andrew’s favourite jobs have been as in-house physio at a chocolate factory, and a locum role in aged-care (both roles involved eating lots of chocolates with the patients).
Despite saying to anyone who would listen (and many who wouldn’t) that he would never open a business, the opportunity to open a practice in the neighbourhood that he loves was too great to pass up. At Movement, Andrew wants to apply top-level physio care to the athletes, wanna-be athletes, and never-been athletes of his local community.
When he isn’t at work, Andrew is a slow runner, an occasional gym-goer, a reluctant swimmer, an avid reader, and most significantly: an eternally frustrated Canterbury Bulldogs fan.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH ANDREW
THE MOVEMENT CENTRE
What to expect
Andrew has been a private-practice musculoskeletal physio for over 10 years. In this time he has worked in elite sport, chronic pain, occupational health, strength and conditioning, and aged-care settings. Suffice to say, Andrew enjoys nearly all aspects of physiotherapy.
Andrew’s ongoing education has similarly taken on a wide focus. He has completed courses on chronic pain management, sports physiotherapy (APA Level 1), strength and conditioning (ASCA), occupational health (CommCare).
He has also completed specific courses relating to tendinopathies, nerve pain, headaches, muscle injury, ankle and hip injuries, to name a few.
Andrew places a strong emphasis on explaining the contributing factors behind pain and injury – he finds this the best way to have his patients return to moving without fear of recurrence.
Andrew’s belief is that the best exercise is the one that the patient is confident and comfortable to do; and his treatment will often include soft-tissue work and mobilisation to help restore comfortable movement.
Most importantly, Andrew always wants his patient’s time (and his own) in the clinic to be enjoyable!
PHYSIOTHERAPY | BECOME PAIN FREE & ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
We get clear on your goals
All our physios at The Movement Centre revel in the complexity and individuality of the human body. There is no such thing as a silly reason to see a physio, the body is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it does weird things (ours included). Regardless of what the underlying need for physiotherapy is, from providing peace of mind through performing quick checkups, helping people recover from little tweaks, or knuckling down for some serious rehab following surgery, significant injury or bouts or strong pain we want to be involved.
The strength of the physio is in the pack… Individually we have all spent years building our knowledge and skill base and as a team we come with decades of varied experience under our belts. Access one, access us all, our goal at The Movement Centre is to help you to move the correct way, to move pain free and to move for a lifetime.
