Nathan O’Connor


Nathan grew up in Sawtell as a keen junior sportsman before moving to the Gold Coast to study and forge a career in the sporting industry.

After completing a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Master of Physiotherapy at Griffith University he launched his career in private practice before spending a number of years working for the Gold Coast Suns AFL club. He has extensive experience diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating a wide range of sporting injuries, designing custom training schedules for athletes and return to sport programs for those who have had a longer hiatus from sport. He is an accredited Strength and Conditioning coach and incorporates this knowledge into his everyday practice to optimise the outcomes of his patients.
