Rohan Ward - Physiotherapist
Rohan has been a registered physiotherapist since 2016. He graduated from the University of Queensland, having completed his postgraduate Master of Physiotherapy Studies. Before that, he completed a Bachelor of Sport & Exercise Science at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Rohan initially worked at a well-established private practice in the Redland Bay of East Brisbane, before returning to the Sunshine Coast where he spent his childhood. Rohan has been working at BT Physiotherapy ever since, and has been enjoyed being a part of the team now for over 5 years.
Rohan has gained extensive knowledge and experience in private practice, working with a wide variety of patients. He has successfully worked with each of his patients to recovery, helping them return from sporting injury (ranging from international-level athletes to the weekend warrior), pre- and post-surgery, work-related injury, chronic conditions, and much more. He is passionate and fascinated by the complex nature of patient rehabilitation, and has comprehensive knowledge of how the body works and enjoys giving this insight to his patients, helping them better understand their symptoms and what steps to take forward in their recovery. Rohan’s passion for physiotherapy stems from his vast sporting background over the past few decades of his life, having experienced many injuries himself and understanding first-hand the importance of early, specific, and effective rehabilitation.
Rohan utilises a ‘hands-on’ approach to his treatment, using joint mobilisation, soft tissue release, trigger point and muscle energy techniques to achieve the best immediate outcome for his patients. He then combines this with targeted exercise prescription to not only help patients recover from their symptoms, but to work on strategies to prevent the likelihood of re-injury and symptom reoccurrence. Rohan also offers dry needling therapy and extracorporeal shock wave therapy as part of his multi-modal treatment approach, depending on the clinical indications for each respectively.
Rohan has undertaken various courses over his career, such as the APA Level 1 Sports Physiotherapy Course, and Advanced Courses for the Upper and Lower Quadrants of the body, delivered by Specialist Physiotherapists who are recognised at the top of the physiotherapy field. He has also taken post-graduate education in the management of vertigo (specifically BPPV), pelvic floor disorders (PFD), complex/chronic pain-states, and pregnancy-related pain.
When he is not working, Rohan enjoys living an active lifestyle with his wife and running around after their two young kids.
